  1. Sensational Peanut Butter Cookies

    November 26, 2011 by siera104

    Below is the modified recipe to the Peanut Butter Cookies,found on this link . My modification on the cookie, was on accident. When measuring the ingredients I picked up a 1/3 cup instead of a 1/4 cup, (my measuring cup’s labels have rubbed off). I tried to bake them using the recipe but they were better with my “mistake”.  

     

    Sensational Peanut Butter Cookies
    21 cookies

    1 1/3 cup peanut butter (see note)
    1 cup natural cane sugar
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    additional sugar for rolling

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees°F.

    Mix all the ingredients up in a bowl. Roll walnut-sized pieces into balls and roll balls in the additional sugar. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork in a crisscross pattern or leave in a ball and have your kisses ready to make blossoms. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool before removing from baking sheet.

    Helpful Hint: To measure your peanut butter, I suggest lining your measuring cup with some plastic wrap, it makes it so much easier to get all of the peanut butter out of the measuring cup.

    Note: Peanut butter comes in all kinds of configurations and the kind you choose will influence your outcome. Some peanut butters are very sweet, some have been hydrogenated, some have a whole lot more in them than peanuts! Then there is the chunky versus smooth debate. I used a Creamy Skippy Natural and have used Jif Natural with success.
