Five ingredients? This recipe caught my eye immediately! I love a good cookie but don't bake drop cookies very often because they take so much more time than bar cookies. These are a creation of Emily's, she at Sugar Plum. If you don't follow her blog, you should. She has the best recipes and they're all her own.
These cookies are quick and easy to make. Emily suggest grinding the coconut in the food processor until it's fine. My coconut seemed to just whirl and whirl around, never seeming to become fine. No worries, it still worked great in the recipe. Five Ingredient cookies are delicious and crispy. I will be making these again! Next time I may try nutella or biscoff spread instead of peanut butter!!
Five Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
Recipe Courtesy of Sugar Plum
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup egg whites or 1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups finely ground unsweetened flaked coconut
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together peanut
butter, sugar, and egg and until well combined - about 1-2 minutes.
Beat in baking soda until combined. Beat in coconut until combined.
Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into balls. Place on baking sheets,
spacing about 3/4-inch apart. Flatten balls making a criss-cross with a
fork. Sprinkle with a little sugar, if desired. Bake 12 minutes or
until cookies are golden around the edges, and crisp. Cool 5 minutes
before transferring to wire racks to cool.
Makes about 1 dozen cookies depending how big you make them.
