Peanut Butter Melties

This is a recipe I adapted from one I got a couple of decades ago in one of those recipe card subscription trial packs... You know the ones I'm talking about (unless you grew up with the interwebs, and then you probably don't). These cookies are almost like short bread in consistency, and they are by far my favorite peanut butter cookies evah.


3/4 c. earth balance (or other vegan margarine)
3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg replacer (I use Ener-G for this recipe)
2 c. all purpose flour

Cream earth balance, peanut butter, and sugar together until smooth. Beat in the egg replacer. Stir in flour to make a stiff dough. Shape dough into balls about ping-pong ball size. Place on cookie sheets.

Press with cookie stamp or pointed side of meatless mallet or any other object that will transfer a design onto each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 8- 10 minutes or until just lightly browned and set. They will be very soft until cooled. Once the cookies firm up, they should slide easily off of the sheets.
