Nothings says "I love you" like home-baked goods, so if you're looking for something fairly idiot-proof which with to impress your Valentine, these cookies (recipe-tested for Denver altitude) are a good bet.
You will need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup non-hydrogenated, non-dairy butter (Earth Balance is best)
3 tablespoons non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
1. Whisk together the egg replacer and water until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
2. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
3. Place the brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, milk and vanilla in a large bowl.
