"C" is still for Cookie, but this time Vanilla Rules!


I've been making the cookies from C is for Cookie, That's Good Enough for Me. I still love these cookies, but when I was Israel recently, my niece came to my sister's for each Shabbat and brought, for my father, some vanilla cookies she made. Though she didn't give me a recipe, I designed my own, based on hers.

The ingredients that I use for these are: 1/2 cup each Spelt flour, almond flour (or meal), organic crunchy peanut butter (no added sugar or fat), and almond "milk". In addition to this, I put in stevia to taste. I use a powdered stevia which I put in with the flours, then I add the almond "milk" (and, into the pools of "milk" I add 1/8 of a teaspoon of maple extract and 1 1/2 Tablespoons non-alcohol vanilla extract) and then add the peanut butter (and blend them all together as well as I can) and if it's still a bit stiff, I put in a bit more "milk" until the consistency is as I like it.

After I get all the ingredients together, I line an 8" X 8" pan with no-stick aluminum foil. Then I press the dough (with a spoon) into the pan, getting it as flat and as even as possible. I bake it at 245 degrees for an hour and a half (90 minutes). I then let the pan cool a bit, and cut it into 16 pieces (4 X 4) and put them into a container. I try to make these whenever I can since they are so easy. They make a good nosh.
