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
- Combine peanut butter, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed until blended.
- Add egg; beat until blended.
- Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture at low speed.
- Mix until blended.
- All of the flour may not be needed, so add gradually until a smooth mixture is obtained.*
- Roll into quarter-size balls and place on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten with tines of fork.
- 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.
