My Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

 Close-Up of Peanut Butter Cookies 

This recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies was found in a cookbook that my Aunt made for the family.  Each family member contributed their own favorite recipes.  Ironically, this was my dad’s contribution.

1/2 Cup Margarine (softened to room temp.)
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 and 1/4 Cups of Flour
3/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt


Preheat over to 375 degrees.

Cream together: 1/2 cup margarine, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 brown sugar, 1 egg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

Sift together: 1 and 1/4 cups of flour, 3/4 teaspoon  baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Slowly add flour mix to butter mix. Form dough into 1 inch balls, place on cookie sheet and make a criss cross pattern with fork dipped into some extra sugar.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.  Cool on cooling rack. Serve with milk, of course!

 *All of the sugar used in this recipe was from C&H Sugar. Please check out the gift guide on C&H’s site.  Many of the ideas are holiday-theme-y but you can adapt them for any occassion.

Disclosure: I received a gift card from C&H Sugar to pay for the ingredients used to make these cookies.
