Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

My husband’s birthday is this week. I decided to bake one of his favorite treats; peanut butter cookies. He loves peanut butter and all foods with peanut butter; cookies, cake, ice cream, pie, etc. I love it too. I will eat it by the spoonful as a snack. A spoonful of peanut butter is even better with chocolate chips on top. But that is a different subject, or post, and this one is about peanut butter cookies.

These cookies have just the right texture and are not flat and hard or crunchy. So many peanut butter cookie recipes come out too dense for me. I prefer a softer homemade cookie.

The original recipe is from the Pillsbury The Complete Book of Baking recipe book published in 1993. The original recipe called for chunky peanut butter and butterscotch chips which I substituted creamy peanut butter and peanut butter chips. It is a simple recipe and I use a handheld mixer. No need for a big countertop mixer but you can use one if you prefer.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough on Sheet PanNo rolling or cutting dough is involved. All you have to do is shape the dough into balls and flatten with a fork dipped in sugar. This will give them the traditional peanut butter cookie look with the crisscross pattern on top. Keep a good watch on the cookies and do not bake too long. Take them out of the oven when they are lightly browned.

What is your favorite cookie? Let me know and it could be a future post.
