12 Frilly Days of Christmas 2015, Day 5: [Recipe] Wow! Butter (or Peanut Butter) Sparkle Cookies

wow butter sparklers cover

One dough. Two cookies. That’s the super versatile time saver I’m offering you the next couple of days.

First up – a wow (or peanut) butter sparkle cookie. This cookie is part sugar cookie, part peanut (or wow) butter cookie. These cookies disappear quicker than any other cookie I bake at home. They’re also really quick to mix up and the recipe is quite easy to remember. I don’t even have to look it up anymore.

We use Wow! butter at our house, and it works beautifully in place of traditional creamy peanut butter in these cookies. We’re so used to wow butter now that we don’t notice anyway, but I’m not even sure you could tell the difference at all. It is completely interchangeable with peanut butter in this recipe. Whether you use wow butter or peanut butter, be sure not to use the natural kind – this recipe needs the creamy, sugar-added kind.

This recipe makes about 6 dozen cookies. As I mentioned above though, this dough does double duty. You can either use the whole batch to make these sparkle cookies, or you can split the dough in half and make some sparkle cookies, saving the other half of the dough for tomorrow’s recipe. Just throw the dough in the fridge, where it will keep for 2 – 3 days.

Pair some of these cookies with a cold glass of milk, and Santa will be one very jolly man.

If you’d like to, divide the dough in two and save half of the dough for tomorrow’s recipe. I have a very scientific method for dividing the dough – I eyeball it.

  2. Wow! This recipe is delicious! My hubby gives it 5 stars…he is allergic to peanut butter so I used WOW butter. I used shortening instead of butter..just because I found that in all my other cookie recipes it makes a crispier cookies..our preference over soft cookies. Thank you for the awesome recipe!
