My husband begs me to make peanut butter cookies all the time and he was hoping I’d make some for our Halloween party. At first I couldn’t figure out a way to make them look festive, but then Wilton sent me the coolest Halloween silicone mold and I found a way to turn a batch of ordinary cookies into Peanut Butter Jack-O-Lantern Cookies.
Peanut Butter Jack-O-Lantern Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cocoa powder
3 Wilton Silicone Jack-O-Lantern Molds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cream butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and peanut butter. Add egg and stir to combine. Stir in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
I made my first batch of these cookies about a week before my party, froze them, then thawed them the day of the event. They tasted like they just came out of the oven.
