Very addictive.

So addictive you can’t eat just one.

So addictive you can’t eat just two.

So addictive they should come with a warning label.

Oh so very addictive.

Not for sharing.

Normally, I am very good about sharing my desserts with any friends who show up at my door. (And due to the fact that my friends know I make desserts for a living, inevitably someone will always show up at my door.) But as soon as I made these cookies, I knew I had something special on my hands. Therefore, I barred the door shut.

And contemplated building a moat around my house.

I’ve had way too much fun with the commentary on this post.


Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cookies

Print This Recipe No ratings yet.


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp raisins
  • salt to taste (I used a little over 1/4 tsp, but I like salty pb cookies!)
  • 2 tbsp roasted, unsalted peanuts (If you can only find salted, reduce or omit added salt)
  • 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract


Throw everything into your food processor (I used an Osterizer) and combine until very smooth. Roll into balls, cookies, bars, or simply eat shovel the dough into your mouth, straight from the machine. Dough can be stored on the counter, in the fridge, or in the freezer.

Or in your belly.

  1. Peanut butter is my latest addiction. I WILL be trying these! I love how I can eat vegan cookie dough without being scared of food poisoning and salmonella!

      If you don’t use any animal products I believe you are safe. The trick is substituting for
      the eggs. Flaxseeds boiled for 20 minutes yield a substitute that I have found for a
      great replacement for the eggs. 2 quarts water with 4 T of flaxseeds. Very messy and
      goey but works wonderfully as a replacement. However, I am not a medical authority
      and if you want some definitive answer you should check with your health care professional.

    Cookie Dough is one of my favorite flavors!

    Quick question….SO I tried to make you pizzart but I used regular whole wheat flour instead of pastry flour and I think it really messed it up!

    I have a suggestion….You should do a Chocolate Covered Katie “Pantry Staples”. Things at the grocery store you need to whip up a lot of your recipes. Most of the time I dont have the things on your recipe list and I get all disappointed 🙁 SO I think it would be a great idea if you just made a list of the MAIN things your readers need to make your recipes, then we can all go shopping and make your yummys whenever we want!!


    1. Andrea Smith says:

      I like the suggestion of the grocery list…things that you use a lot in your recipes so that we could throw together more than one recipe within a coupld of days!!


      1. I love that idea. I’ll definitely work on making a list!

        1. Liz says:

          I made your Melties and flourless cookies on a whim the other day!! It does make it more exciting when I already have the stuff to throw together!!

  3. raisins are the new dates?! These sound GOOD!

    1. I think this being raisins are much easier on my college budget! Haha. Sad truth.

      1. katherine says:

        at my local grocery store, you can get medjool dates for a whopping $12.89 per pound! they are so freakin’ expensive it isn’t even funny. Therfore i usually use pure maple syrup, honey, raisins, or (GASP!) real sugar. or i find another recipe. that’s why i love my Katie because she usually doesn’t use dates.

  4. Great commentary! but if i were one of the friends you mentioned, I’ll bring my own spoon… and other utesils… you know… to shorten the preparation time for you? 😀

  5. Mmmmm! I wasn’t expecting the recipe to look like this but they turned out so great looking!!! –I think I’d lock my door at all times if I made dessert for a living! 🙂

  6. VEGirl says:

  9. Oh, man, I am SO going to have to make these! All I need to buy are peanuts!

  10. Andrea Smith says:
