    I would just use butter. They would be tastier.

    I would just use butter. Much richer flavor and does the same job. I have heard you can substitute applesauce too in some baking, not sure what it would do to peanut butter cookies though.

    I don’t put anymore fat in my PB cookies than the PB and egg.
    Actually it is:
    1 C PB
    1 Egg
    1 C Sugar
    Bake at 350 until golden about 15 minutes WONDERFUL~ Beware they don’t last long.
