Peanut butter cookies are one of the go-to, classic recipes in our house. Today I’d love to share my recipe with you! It’s the same one my dad always made, and my Gram before that.
Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. Jif peanut butter
- 1/2 c. shortening
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1-1/4 c. flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Beat together egg, sugar, peanut butter, and shortening. Sift dry ingredients together, then mix them in.
Roll into 1″ balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Press with a fork (or other festive shaped press – my dad always used a star shape). Sprinkle with sugar, and bake for 8-10 minutes. Recipe yields 30 cookies.
Now – if that’s not enough for you, I have another great treat today!
