Peanut Butter Cookies
This is one old time favourite cookie recipe. It is also one of my hubby’s favourite cookies.
The recipe is simple and easy to make. You need only a few ingredients, peanut butter, of course, and a mixer to blend everything together.
Kids can also help and be involved in making these cookies. They can have fun rolling the cookie dough into little balls… This can be a fun activity for the whole family, and what better way to start them in the kitchen… :)
Enjoy and have fun!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until creamy. Add peanut butter and egg; beat until smooth.
Combine the flour, baking soda and baking powder; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Place dough in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.
Shape into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball by lightly pressing with a fork, (don’t flatten them too much as they spread during baking).
Bake at 350° F for 10-12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Using a spatula (cookies are soft) remove cookies to cooling rack or a flat surface to set.
Makes: about 4 dozen.
