Today's post is about cooking with food storage for the most loyal member of your family. I have fed these treats to many of man's best friend and not one has complained that they don't like them, or told me they could taste the powdered milk, or even said 'yuck' to the whole wheat in this recipe! I know they will be a hit at your house too!
Molly's Peanut Butter Cookies
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (I always use 2 cups.)
1 cup milk (I used powdered milk here. It is a great way to help rotate your powdered milk supplies!)
To make this recipe super convenient, I mix it in a gallon size bag. No need to wash dishes if you don't have to. Start with mixing all the dry ingredients in the bag. I usually mix the powdered milk with the dry ingredients.
Next, add the peanut butter and milk (or water if you used powdered milk). Knead the bag well.
To completely mix, mine took about 10 minutes. The dough should look like this.
You can drop them by teaspoon onto a cookie sheet, but I don't do that. I cut off the corner of the bag and squeeze about the same amount onto the cookie sheet. To me, this is easier. My recipe says to grease the cookie sheet. I used parchment paper instead.
You can also roll them out and use bone shaped cookie cutters. I usually save that extra work for Christmas time when we give these away as presents. If I am not using cookie cutters, I flatten them with a fork (just like with people peanut butter cookies).
Bake them at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. If you are using a Sun Oven, bake at 350 degrees for about 35 - 40 minutes. They should be a golden brown when they are done.
Give one to your special family member(s). I bet you will get extra kisses for it!
