Peanut Butter Cookies.

I'm addicted to peanut butter. I like it. It tastes good. It's good for me.

I have tons of open pb jars.  The regular Kraft stuff, the natural organic stuff... you name it, I've probably got it.

It makes sense that I like peanut butter cookies as well.

Some Peanut Butter Cookies were plain, 
others had some Cadbury Crunch chocolate bar added. 
Yeah, I can get real fancy like that.

These cookies were soft.

I put the dough in plastic wrap. Made 2 cookie logs.
Now I can have fresh cookies whenever I want.
Just cut and bake.

This recipe makes a ridiculous number if cookies. Perhaps 4 dozen?

Recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup + 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter (or smooth pb)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
(2 chopped up Cadbury Crunch chocolate bars)
Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. (Then mix in the chocolate bars if you want).  Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern (or slice from the cookie log).
Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for about 9 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.


  1. I could probably eat 4 dozen peanut butter cookies...they are just so very good! There is nothing better than a plate of peanut butter cookies and a tall glass of milk. Thanks for sharing!

  2. These look yummy! Is there a way to make it so that there are chunks of peanut butter in the cookie? Like awesome bits to nibble on as you're munching away... that would be amazing.

  3. chunks of pb would be very tasty. I think hersey makes peanut butter chips.. You know, like chocolate chips but made of peanut butter? hmmmm!
