Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

By sexyswamprat

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine, room temperature

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter

  • Sugar substitute equal to 1/4 cup sugar (optional)

  • 1/3 cup egg whites

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Cream margarine, sugar, peanut butter, and sugar substitute (if using) together at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg whites, vanilla, and water and mix at medium speed for 30 seconds, continuing to scrape the sides of the bowl. In a separate bowl, stir flour, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips together to blend well; stir gently so as not to break chips. Add to creamed mixture and mix to blend.

  2. Spray cookie sheets with vegetable cooking spray. Drop 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Leave on sheets 3 to 4 minutes, then remove cookies to wire rack and cool to room temperature.

This sounds oh so yummy, will have to make these. As I just tried this kind of cookie last week made with regular sugar. This would be much better for me.

With Splenda as a substitute for sugar you can have your cookies and eat it all…that's what am talking about…lol
