In my previous Food Allergy post, I mentioned that I use SunButter. SunButter is made from sunflower seeds and can be used as a substitute for peanut butter and other nut butters. In my house, peanuts and tree nuts are strictly avoided. Peanut Butter Cookies have always been a favorite of mine so I adapted the recipe to be allergy free for me. (Always remember what is allergy free for one person isn’t necessarily allergy free for another.)
Then…what better way to serve your cookies than on a vintage platter. Here are a few selections.

You can always use your favorite substitute for white sugar. And, you can substitute 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce for the egg. I hope you’ll give the cookie recipe a try. Be sure to serve them on your favorite vintage platter!

Fantastic! Vintage china plates and platters are wonderful to have around during the holidays. Not only can you server goodies in them at home but you can give them as gifts. I always bake goodies for friends and neighbors and bring the cookies or breads in vintage china they can keep.

JD, the cookies are yummy! As a matter of fact, I will be making some this weekend. They freeze well so I put portions in freezer bags and pull them out a few at a time.

Excellent choice of cookie recipe and vintage trays and plates to rest them on! I’ll have to try the recipe this weekend. Yum!

Thank you, Betty. You’ll have to let me know if you did any further substituting on the cookie recipe.

The mushroom tray is groovy! I wonder what would happen if we tried sunbutter cookies with honey instead of sugar? These special diets sure can be hard!

Thanks for stopping by, Laura. I don’t know on substituting honey, but if you try it let me know how it goes.
