Peanut Butter!

October 4, 2007

I’m picky about peanut butter cookies. I don’t like soft, chewy ones. I like my PB cookies to be kind of crisp but not hard, and maybe a little crumbly. These, as long as they are not over cooked, are fantastic.

Peanut Butter Cookies
Approx. 3 dozen cookies.
1 C peanut butter (I use creamy)
3/4 C light brown sugar
3/4 C sugar
1/2 C shortening
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 C flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 egg
3 tbs milk

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix peanut butter, both sugars, shortening, vanilla, and milk.
2. Beat in the egg.
3. Add flour and baking soda. Mix.
4. Drop by spoonful (I use a tsp) onto ungreased cookie sheet. Press with fork in a criss-cross shape or chocolate kisses/chips. (This time I used both the fork method and some dark chocolate chips.) Feel free to sprinkle a pinch of extra sugar over the fork-pressed cookies.
5. Bake at 375 degrees for 7 minutes. It is very important not to over-bake these cookies! If baked for the right amount of time, they will melt in your mouth. Over-bake them and they will be like rocks. They may not seem completely done. Don’t fret, they are fine.

    I’m the opposite of you – I like my cookies soft, not hard and crumbly! But this recipe sounds like it could go either way, depending on cooking time, so it’s a great recipe!
