I bring cookies to the National Night Out block party each year. This year I’m making peanut butter cookies again (being that I detest peanut butter, it insures that I won’t eat them all myself).
½ cup sugar
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup peanut butter (I usually use Krema brand crunchy pb)
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Heat oven to 375 F. In large bowl, beat sugar, brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter, milk, vanilla and egg; blend well. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt; mix well. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped in sugar.
Bake at 375 F for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
