My kids are not fans of peanut butter and I can’t blame them, I only started to like it as a young adult myself. But I recently remembered that they liked some peanut butter cookies they tried when visiting friends over the summer. And I remembered my friend telling me how easy and quick they are to make! So I set out to find a new recipe. And this one was a huge success among my family and as well friends.
Having said that, the below listed ingredients are from allrecipes.com but I found the sugar shockingly high and reduced it by half and I think even less will do!
I also added some dark chocolate chips just before baking.
Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar (I reduced by half)
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (I reduced by half)
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Optional: dark chocolate chips to be added just before baking
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
In a large bowl, cream together the peanut butter, butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until well blended.
Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla one at a time.
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into creamed mixture.
Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. (I made them a bit small, approx. half a tablespoon
Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Press each ball once with a fork.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are lightly browned.
That’s all all there is to do – and you are ready to enjoy!
and have a lovely day
