  • 1 cup butter , or margarine
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda


  • Preheat over to 350F. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, peanut butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add the flour and baking soda and stir.
  • Working with balls, ropes and blobs or dough, create creatures and animals. Tiny bits of dough can be used to make eyes or spots, and stringy ropes can become whiskers.
  • Put critters on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 min, until lightly browned around the edges. Thin cookies will cook more quickly, so keep a close watch over them and remove critters from the pan as soon as they’re done. Allow to cool completely before devouring.
