Today’s recipe is an old favourite. Ever since the creation of peanut butter people have been trying different ways to incorporate it into their food from peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to peanut butter sauce. Today we’re making peanut butter Cookies.
Admittedly I made these cookies plain but also made a batch of chocolate-chip peanut butter cookies. Everyone usually loves them so here’s hoping the kids enjoy it too.
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter ( I used crunchy )
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

What the dough should look like ( before I added the Chocolate chips) I divided the 2 into 2 equal parts and made half of them plain and the other half choco-chip.
Recipe Rating 9/10
The cookies without the chocolate chips were chewier than the ones with it but they were both equally delicious. The cookie dough can also be frozen for later use. Rolling them in sugar is essential.
