Vintage Peanut Butter Cookies

During his visit, the LD also requested peanut butter cookies (actually he’s been requesting these for a while, but I haven’t had the time to bake them). In the process of making these cookies, I discovered that finding a base recipe for classic peanut butter cookies is actually fairly challenging. So if you’re looking for a spin on the traditional PB Cookie, they are definitely out there and a simple Taste Spotting or Food Gawker search will find them.

Now let’s get to my classic peanut butter cookie:
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Whip the butter and sugars together for approx. 3 minutes until completely blended and fluffy.
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • Combine the peanut butter, eggs, vanilla, chopped peanuts and peanut butter chips and mix for another 2 minutes.
  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Stir in all dry ingredients and mix until completely blended.

Scoop the cookies into medium to large sized balls, place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place into a 350°F oven for 11-13 minutes. I like my cookies a bit gooey so I took them out at the 11 minute mark.

These cookies are best served to someone you enjoy and someone who enjoys a good PB cookie. Be sure to serve with a glass of cold milk! :)
