Here is my recipe:
1 cup sun butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg slightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon raw sugar
Here is how I made these cookies.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Position racks in the upper and lower third of the oven.
2. Place peanut butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined. Fold in butterscotch mini morsels.
3. Working with 1 heaping tablespoon at a time, mold dough into balls. Place dough balls about 2 to 3 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Gently flatten dough balls with the tines of a fork. Sprinkle with sugar.
4. Bake approximately 10 minutes or until edges begin to turn golden around the edges, switching the position of the pans halfway after 5 minutes. Transfer baking sheets to cooling racks. Allow cookies to cool completely before transferring to a serving platter.
