Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

If you are looking to re-create Peanut Butter Cookies like your grandmother used to make, you know the cookie; a little crunchy on the outside and totally chewy on the inside, then this is the cookie for you! This is a delicious, peanut buttery, old-fashioned cookie like your Grammie would have made.

My hubby is a peanut butter cookie fanatic, so I thought this would be a fun cookie to make for him and hopefully it would bring back lots of great childhood memories.

This is a very simple recipe, but that doesn’t diminish the yummy factor!

Cream the butter and peanut butter together until they are light and fluffy.

Using a floured fork, gently press each cookie, first one way and then the another. (The pattern will resemble a hashtag #, except there will be four lines going each way instead of two!)

Serves: 40-42
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used smooth, but crunchy would work well too)

  6. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  7. Beat in vanilla.
  8. Gradually stir in flour, gently stirring until the flour is just combined. Don't overmix or the cookies will be tough.

  13. Store at room temperature, in an airtight container. Cookies can be frozen.

 

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask and I will do my very best to answer.

What is your favourite cookie? (If I had to pick just one, I would need to indulge my chocoholicness and pick Reverse Chocolate Chip)
