This weekend I made some Peanut Butter Cookies. The primary ingredient is peanut butter but the peanut butter in Brazil is very different than the US. I think that the peanut butter in Brazil is less oily and sugary which causes the recipe I normally use to produce drier cookies. This is the second time that I have tried to make Peanut Butter Cookies in using Brazilian peanut butter. I think that I have figured out how to modify the recipe to my satisfaction.
Brazilian Peanut Butter
The cookie recipe is very simple with only four ingredients. Peanut butter, sugar, eggs, and crushed peanuts are the only things that are needed. The ratios are approximate but here is what I used 750 grams Brazilian Peanut Butter, 3 eggs, 150 grams crushed peanuts, and 500 grams sugar. The most difficult part of baking this is the actual baking but the ovens here are a little temperamental. 200 degrees Celsius for about 10 minutes makes good cookies in one of my ovens. However, in the other it is about 20 minutes of cooking at 200 degrees.
The recipe makes a couple of cookies.
I took these cookies to the church Agape fellowship meeting on Sunday. I believe that everyone liked the cookies very much. I got many compliments and then also had a few ladies ask for the recipe. I even got one guy saying that my wife will like the fact that I can cook.

The best compliment that I got was that almost all of the cookies were gone by the time I got home. I think that I will keep this recipe around.
