Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s cookie time again!  I keep cookies made to put in My Honey’s lunch for work, so every so often I have to make a batch.  This time, I made plain and simple peanut butter cookies.  I got this particular recipe from a local cookbook:  Second Edition Plumerville Homecoming Cookbook.  This particular recipe was submitted by a lady named Opal Shaver Savage.



  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
  • 1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda


  1. Combine peanut butter, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl.  Beat at medium speed until blended.
  2. Add egg; beat until blended.
  3. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture at low speed.
  4. Mix until blended.
  5. All of the flour may not be needed, so add gradually until a smooth mixture is obtained.*
  6. Roll into quarter-size balls and place on ungreased baking sheet.  Flatten with tines of fork.
  7. Bake at 375-degrees for 7-8 minutes or until set.  Watch carefully as cookies will brown easily.

*Note:  I used the whole 1 1/2 cups of flour.

    I attended Plumerville High School, graduated in 1959. We had our 50th Reunion 2009, what fun we had. My son “Butch” Foster & his wife Susie sang for our entertainment. We use to come to Homecoming a lot, but we live in Alabama and it is a long hard trip, haven’t been since 2009, always enjoyed it so very much.
