This site is just great! I can't wait to see more recipes!
I also wanted to add that, being a professional cook, I admit I have a difficult time understanding any measurements in cups. I think it's dreadfully unprecise! Concerning the cookies, Oboeman might have tried to point out that you should mention the size of the balls in weight, not in size.

Great work!
Take care,
Alex

PLEASE leave in the cups, tablespoons, and inches for those of us who wouldn't have a clue what a gram is.

Also...regarding the comment listing cookie size by weight...how could you tell how big to make them if you don't won a cooking scale? I don't know anyone who does own one.

You can't satisfy everyone Smile but I do spent quite a bit of time making sure that I present the recipes in both U.S. (cups, etc.) and the-rest-of-the-world units.

I have no desire to drop the U.S. units since I do live in the U.S. and cater to a mostly U.S. audience - but I have been making sure that I include mass when appropriate. I actually cook with a mix of volume and mass measurements depending on which is faster or more expedient to the task.

instead of using brown sugar could you use regular white sugar?

Yes, you can use white sugar, but the cookie will lack some moistness. Try replacing the brown sugar with 1/2 cup granulated white and add about one to two teaspoons (~10 mL) of mild molasses.

Do any of the other nut butters work rather than peanut butter, i.e. almond or maccadamian butter for peanut butter cookies?

You can substitute some molasses with white granulated to substitute for brown sugar, but the cookie will have a strange texture. Believe me, I tried it and it just isn't pretty.....

Hello, love the site.

As for using other nut butters, I have had wonderful results from almond butter. (Places like Sunflower market, Sprouts, or other natural food stores, I'm sure, you can grind your own-- resulting in a slightly textured, very healthy butter that is perfect for cookies. A bit on the pricey side, though!!)

Since there's no added salt or hydrogenated oils, this is a great alternative for people looking for a slightly heathier cookie. Also, great for people with peanut allergies.

(You might even be able to make your own coarse nut butter in a food processor, though I have yet to try this.)

Good luck, and hope you enjoy the other butters as much as I do!!

My son came home last night to let me know they were having a cookie exchange. This was at 9pm I was told. When I got off of work I looked on the interenet & found this great site.
(All my cook books are in storage)
Pulled up peanut butter cookies..woke him up & we were off by 7:30 am we were finished & off to school with wonderful tasting cookies. I did not get to refrigerate them but they still came out great.
You have saved my reputation & my son is the hero.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.!!!
Most Sincerely, Di

Hands up who watches Good Eats ? anyone ??

OK stuff like flour should be weighed as it can settle in the jar/packet and therefore a cup isn't always a cup , but a gram is always a gram.

Gotta love Good eats for little tidbits of info Wink
