Peanut Butter Cookies ( Not sure right spot for post)

Postby Onefop » Fri Feb 05, 2010 7:31 pm

½ cup of butter or margarine (1 stick)
½ cup of sugar
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large egg
1cup creamy peanut butter
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cup all purpose flour
1/1/4th teaspoons baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In large bowl or mixer, cream the butter or margarine and sugars (very important, I warm the bowl with hot water)

Add egg and beat well

Add the Peanut Butter and vanilla, beat until smooth

In medium bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Gradually stir into the butter or margarine mixture till well mixed

Pinch off chucks of dough and roll into ball in palm of hand about ¼ inch each, place 1 ½ to 2 inch’s apart on baking sheet. Not necessary to spray or run the sheet if non stick

Take a wide salad fork and press down on cookie lightly to achieve design and flatter cookie, the edges might crack, no worries.

Bake for 15 minutes, the cookie will not appear to be done. Remove from oven, let set for 5 min on sheet pan to firm up some. Remove and place on cooling rack for an hour before storing in container

I gather all the items needed and measure all out prior to starting, use as checklist not
Missing any thing

PS, you can add a Hershey kiss candy on top of each if desired. I do not as I like the peanut taste
