With Christmas just days away, I thought I would come up with a quick and easy list of party and entertainment foods that you can make for friends and family with peanut butter. But not just any peanut butter, SKIPPY’s Natural Creamy Peanut Butter, my favorite! I am obsessed!
Here’s my peanut buttery list!
- Place a spoonful of peanut butter on salted crackers with some coarse sea salt as an appetizer
- Make a peanut butter dip for fruit such as strawberries and grapes
- Grab some soft bread and jelly and make those guests of yours some delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
- Make a nice hot cup of peanut butter and jelly hot chocolate!
- You can’t go wrong with ants-on-a-log!
- Bake some peanut butter thumbprint cookies that scream Christmas cookie! (see below)
- 1 cup white rice flour
- ¼ cup almond flour
- ¼ cup potato starch
- ½ tsp xanthan gum
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
- 4 TBSP unsalted butter, softened
- ½ SKIPPY Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 24 GF chocolate candies
- Preheat your oven to 350*F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the rice flour, almond flour, potato starch, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt thoroughly.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter and brown sugar. Beat with a hand mixer on medium for 2-3 minutes, or until a light and fluffy whipped consistency forms.
- Add in the peanut butter, egg, and vanilla and beat for another 1-2 minutes.
- Slowly add this mixture to the dry ingredients until dough forms.
- Roll dough into 1 TBSP sized balls and place on the cookie sheets. Press a thumb indention into the center of each ball and place a chocolate candy in it's place.
- Bake cookies for 10-13 minutes, or until the edges become golden brown. Cool cookies on cooling racks. Enjoy!
