Dairy-free Peanut Blossom Cookies

Dairy-free Peanut Blossom Cookies

1-3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons soymilk, rice milk, or almond milk

1/2 cup solid shortening

1 egg

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup peanut butter

Dairy-free Chocolate Chunks (You will need about 48 chunks.  Check the labels on the pre-made chunks to ensure that they are dairy-free.  You can also buy a semi-sweet baking bar and cut it into chunks.  Again, always double check the label.)

Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and mix at low speed until a dough forms.  Shape dough into balls (using rounded teaspoonfuls.)  Roll balls in additional sugar.  Place on cookie sheet.  Bake at 375° F. for 10-12 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Top each hot cookie immediately with chocolate chunk, pressing down so cookie cracks around edge.

NOTE: You can also use dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate chips in place of the baker’s chocolate chunks.  Just place 3 chocolate chips on top of the cookie after it comes out of the oven.  These also make awesome peanut butter cookies.  Just flatten each ball crisscross with a fork after rolling in sugar and bake.
