Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Party favours anyone? I had some friends over for a small Christmas get together so they each left with a bag of these Peanut butter cup thumbprint cookies. I have made these before but with processed sugars so this time I swapped out white sugar for Xylitol and brown sugar for coconut sugar and they turned out just as amazing! If you don’t have access to Xylitol any granulated sugar should work in its place.

The key step is to press a mini peanut butter cup into the cookies as soon as they are removed from the oven.

Let cool slightly and pop the cookie out with a knife. I only have one 24 cup mini muffin tin so I had to put two batches in the oven, so I popped them out while still warm but very carefully.

Here is the recipe 👇🏽

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Ingredients:

•1-3/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
•1/2 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt
•1 teaspoon baking soda
•1/2 cup butter, softened
•1/2 cup granulated Xylitol
•1/2 cup natural peanut butter
•1/2 cup coconut sugar
•2 egg whites or 1 egg
•1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
•2 tablespoons almond milk or choice
•32-40 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.

Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and coconut sugar. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well. Shape into 32-40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan.

Bake at 350°F for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each cookie. Cool and carefully remove from pan.

Yield 32-40 cookies

Let cook completely before distributing into bags. Stores for up to a week at room temperature or two weeks in fridge.

Gingerbread

A healthier take on gingerbread. I had gotten some small cookie cutters and needed to put them to use! The only problem with smaller cookies is they are harder to decorate! Time consuming but well worth all the cookies you get out of it. Sending most of them to friends and family and also some for Santa too 🎅

Here is the recipe:

Gingerbread Cookies

Ingredients

Cookies:

•3 Cups whole wheat flour, plus extra to flour surface
•2 tsp ground cinnamon
•2 tsp ground ginger
•½ tsp ground cloves
•¼ tsp pink Himalayan salt
•½ tsp baking soda
•¼ tsp baking powder
•½ Cup blackstrap molasses or regular for less spicy
•½ Cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted
•½ Cup coconut palm sugar
•1 large egg
•2 Tbsp water

Lemon Icing:

•½ Cup powdered sugar
•1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice

Method:

1. In a large bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, baking soda & baking powder and whisk together until combined.

2. In a small bowl, combine the molasses and melted coconut oil with hand mixer until well incorporated. Add the coconut sugar, egg and water and mix until well blended together.

3. Pour the molasses mixture into your dry ingredients and blend together until just combined, if it seems crumbly keep mixing or add 1tsp at a time more water. Divide dough to form 2 balls with your hands once combined. Flatten the 2 balls into 1 inch thick discs and place in fridge for at least an hour.

4. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Pull dough out of fridge and let sit for about 30-60min at room temp as it may be a little hard to roll. Lightly flour your working surface and roll your discs until they are about ¼ inch thick.

5. Cut out cookie shapes with desired cookie cutters (I used small cutters and a large gingerbread man cutter).  Place your cut cookies onto parchment sheet spacing about ½ inch apart as they don’t expand much. Combine leftover dough scraps and form ball and roll again. Repeat with other dough.

6. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes (8 minutes they should be done – 10 minutes a little crispier). Remove from pans and place on racks to cool.

7. Let cookies cool completely before icing. To prepare the icing combine the powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl and whisk together until smooth. Place in a small piping bag or Ziploc bag with corner cut and pipe cookies as desired, adding sprinkles, powdered sugar, any decorations desired. The icing hardens quickly so add sprinkles as soon as you pipe icing. Keep stored in airtight container. Wait at least 1-2 hours after icing before stacking cookies.
