Peanut Butter Cookies with Coconut Oil

Well, I love using new ingredients and I recently picked up some coconut oil not really knowing what to do with it but vowing to do a little research. Turns out it's a low to medium-temp oil useful for sauteing, baking and yes, even as a moisturizer (who knew? LOL).

While this is not my own recipe (found it over here), I will be using it again. These cookies turned out great. Flavorful, great texture and probably won’t last the night! So, pick up some coconut oil, try this recipe and see for yourself.

Shared from Epicurious.com

Just about 1 c. coconut oil
2 ½ c. all-purpose flour
¾ c. sugar
1 1/3c. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 eggs (or 2 jumbo)
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 ½ c. peanut butter (the original recipe calls for crunchy, unsalted but I used regular creamy).

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. In large bowl, beat together coconut oil and peanut butter. Beat in the eggs. Add the sugars and vanilla. Combine with dry ingredients. Roll into small balls and bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes.
