Peanut Butter Cookies

Sunday morning I got up decided to make cookies. Now what kind is the next question. We just bought a new jar of peanut butter (Jif). So Peanut butter cookies it is. Then I went through my recipes. I found a few different ones I have made. The one I chose was a recipe I was given from a friend I used to work with. After I had the batter made and ready to roll into balls, I thought I wanted them all the same size. A large cookie, so how was I going to obtain that....oh yes, my son sells on ebay I used the scale. Ok, onto the recipe:

Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cup flour, sifted
1/2 tsp. vanilla


Beat butter until soft
Add sugar gradually and blend until mixture is creamy
Add egg, peanut butter, salt, and baking soda: Beat this until well blended
Add flour and mix slowly until mix throughly
Add vanilla

Roll the dough into small balls. Place them on a grease cookie sheet. Press with fork dipped in sugar to flatten.
Bake about 15 minutes at 375 F

Hi Peabody

I had not used it before. I bought it at Wal-mart. It is not in the grocery stores here. It is very good peanut butter. I will be buying it again. I will have to look up your post on Jif ..
Have a great day.

These sound really good! I love PB cookies! I am not too happy about Jif though as it contains hydrogenated oils and I stay clear of them whenever possible!

Ruth Fremes - Cookbooks. I too was a huge fan of that show. She had a wonderful recipe for Tortiere (meat pie)with the most perfect pie crust. I've lost my copy over the years... would it happen to be in one of the books you have??
Fingers crossed and thanks so much for looking!
