Peanut Butter Critters


  • Makes0 servings


  • 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.
