Hello there, and welcome to “Sugar & Spice!” My name is Melissa Randall, from “Baking with Melissa.” And today, we are making reduced-fat peanut butter cookies. We’re going to go ahead and put a half a cup of reduced-fat peanut butter into our bowl, and a half a stick of reduced-fat margarine or butter into the bowl as well, and we’re going to cream those together. Once you have your peanut butter and your butter mixed together, you’re going to add in a half a cup of brown sugar, and a fourth of a cup of white granulated sugar. Place that into the bowl, and let it stir for about two minutes. Okay, I have the peanut butter and butter all mixed in with the sugars. Now, we’re going to place three tablespoons of reduced-fat or fat-free milk into our bowl, a teaspoon of vanilla, and one egg. And, go ahead and get that all mixed together. Now, you’re going to add in one and three-fourths of a cup of flour, a half a teaspoon of salt, and one teaspoon of baking soda. We’ll just go ahead and give that a little mix there, and you’ll gradually add the flour into your bowl. Okay, I have all of the ingredients mixed together. Now, it’s time to put our cookies onto our cookie sheet. I’ve preheated the oven to 350 degrees, and I’ve lined my baking sheet with parchment paper. You don’t have to line it with parchment paper. However, when you bake cookies with parchment paper, it makes the release of the cookie so much easier! I’m taking a small little scoop here, and putting my cookie dough onto the cookie sheet. And then, once you get them all onto your pan, you’re going to take a fork and you’re going to press down in the center of the cookie in both directions, like so. Now, if you want to make bigger cookie sizes, you can do that as well, just depends. But, since these are reduced-fat, you might want to make them smaller. Now, I have the cookies ready to go in the oven. As I said earlier, I preheated the oven to 350 degrees, and I’m going to let them bake for approximately 12 to 14 minutes. So, start checking them after about 12 minutes. And, there you have it: Amazing reduced-fat peanut butter cookies. So, you can still enjoy some sweet treats even when you’re watching your calorie intake. Thank you for watching me here today on “Sugar & Spice.” My name is Melissa Randall, from “Baking with Melissa,” and I hope you have a wonderful baking day!
