I'm a big fan of posting recipes, especially when I find one that works really well or is especially yummy. Well now, Bethany from B&b ex libris has given me a whole new reason to post my favorite recipes: cooking-themed giveaways!
I just participated in a cookie swap yesterday; here are the two recipes I used that turned out to be pretty popular:
Easy Flourless PB Cookies
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Mix the peanut butter, sugar, and egg in a bowl. Using either your hands or a spoon, drop balls of dough onto a baking sheet (I line mine with parchment paper, but that's not necessary). Unwrap the kisses and pop them onto the center of the ball. If you prefer your cookies to be chocolate-free, skip the kisses and use a fork to create a criss-cross pattern on the top of the cookie. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Yum!
2/3 cup sugar
2 egg whites
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
zest of 1 orange
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk the first six ingredients together, then toss with the coconut. Using a spoon (this tends to messy and sticky), drop blobs of batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until the edges are golden. Double yum!
My other favorite recipes (for real food) can be found here and here. Now I'm off to test out some of these other recipes I've seen posted...
