I have been married to my dear husband for nearly 17 years. How is it that I could be married to him that long, and NOT know that his favorite cookie is peanut butter? I assumed he loved chocolate chip cookies like almost every other person in the world! :) When I asked him this week what my favorite cookie is, he knew right away…I love snickerdoodles! I felt like a ditch dog for not knowing what his favorite is.
To make it up to Andy, I found a simple recipe on Allrecipes.com, and for the first time in my life, baked a couple batches of peanut butter cookies tonight. They turned out great (you never know with me and cookies!), and Andy said they are the best he has ever had :)
Here are the little golden lovelies…
I found a very easy recipe to make these…
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix all ingredients together in mixing bowl. Place dough on cookie sheet formed in 1" balls. Bake at 325 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Leave on cookie sheet to cool until they set, and then move to cooling rack to cool completely.
***Baker’s Note*** I made my cookies a little bit bigger, so I baked them for closer to 10 minutes. The recipe didn’t call for the fork imprint, but my mom always made them that way. You just fill a small bowl with milk, dip your fork in it, and make the imprint on the cookies two ways. The milk helps the batter not stick to the fork. I also sprinkled my cookies with sugar as soon as they came out of the oven. It soaks into the cookies as they set, and tastes so good! My mom also did that.
This was my first time ever making peanut butter cookies, and I love how they turned out. I’ll be making them again soon!
