It is day 6 of my 24 Days of Christmas and today’s recipe is Eat Naked Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies, a simple no-bake, just-ice recipe, perfect to make with the kids or for when you are short on time!
Eat Naked have just launched their new Peanut Butter Cookies, which are vegan and preservative-free. While these cookies are not gluten-free, they have very little flour and mostly consist of oats that sandwich a thick layer of Eat Naked Peanut Butter.
Making the Eat Naked Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies
To give these cookies a festive spin, I created glacé icing in white, red and green, dipped the face of each cookie into the icing and topped with Christmas inspired sprinkles. Easy peasy!
Glace Icing is smooth, runny and glossy and is ideal for doughnuts, sponges and cookies because it sets hard. It is also a lot cheaper than buttercream icing because all you need is water, no butter required.
For this recipe, I used icing sugar, water, a tiny bit of almond essence (to bring out the peanut butter flavour of the cookies) and gel food colouring. Check out the recipe below.
