Whenever I name a recipe, I typically end up adding far too many words. On the flip side of it being a mouthful, at least you know exactly what you’re getting into. I’ve been craving a chocolate chip baking sesh for the past couple of days, and after perusing the lovely cookie posts of my fellow WordPressors, I finally ended up scouring the cupboards for a makeshift passable snack. This is essentially a knock off 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookie recipe. We don’t have any sugar at the moment, so I replaced it with the last dregs of maple syrup, and added 1/4 tsp of baking powder because I’m not that great at chemistry, and didn’t have strong confidence that the cookie pie would actually rise. I’m pretty sure the baking powder is what gave the unexpected but oh-so-delectible flakiness. Flakiness is kind of hard to come by in gluten free baking, so my palate was pleasantly surprised. The ‘pie’ aspect came into play as I pretty much didn’t feel like separating the dough into actual cookies, and felt like somehow putting it in my sister’s clear Pyrex pie dish would serve as a sort of buffer to the whole endeavor becoming an absolute fail. I think it worked. 

Also to be noted:

1. I am a terrible food photographer, but I know the look I’m going for and I try. Haha.

2. I think the baking powder also makes the cookie a little bit salty, but it worked out this time around, as I was using unsalted peanut butter.

  1. Love your honesty – I am a work in progress with my photos, but have come along way since I began 5 months ago and am particularly proud of my ‘poulet aux herbes’ photo – love your philosophy – I am happy you liked my chicken prvencale – a bientot!

  2. Thanks B, for the ‘like’ on my Crunchy Peanut Butter and Macadamia Cookies. I am thoroughly enjoying reading your posts, which are so interesting. I love that you ‘tell it as it is’. Have a great day.


  3. You sound like me when I’m baking. I like the long recipe name. I love anything that is pie-like, even if it means just using a pie dish, so I’ll be trying this one!

  4. Rebekkah,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the like.

    This is very innovative.

    I remember the days when, as a young mother without much, I would do this very thing. Just think of what might go good together, and do something original with it! There wasn’t much, but three or four ingredients are easy to work with!

    The Flourless Almond Butter Cookies look pretty good. And, of course, the Double Chocolate Brownie Crust Cookie. Chocolate. yes.

    You have a great voice. You’re playing the guitar as well? It’s good.

    • Thank you so much! And thank you for listening! I do play guitar and have written the melodies to most of my songs on guitar, but I hired a session musician to track the guitar for my album. I think he did a great job! 🙂
