PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
Suddenly, my hubby asked me to make peanut butter cookies. I guess peanut butter cookies became their traditional cookies which everyone here knows and likes it.
Since he knew I never make any of it, he is the one who looking for the recipe and printed out and handed the recipe to me and drove me to WinCo to buy a big jar of peanut butter *so you can imagine how he really wanted this cookies ;)*.
When I was shaping the cookie dough into a 3/4-inch ball, I'm kinda worried because the dough is little bit crumbly, so I need to press it to make a solid ball. Then, after the cookies came out from the oven, I know the crumbly dough made this cookies crunchy and very moist. No wonder 99% people in America like this cookies :).
I can say this is a good yet cheap cookies to make ;) *I like it! :p*
By my hubby's request, I made 4 times of the recipe. So now we have a big container of peanut butter cookies....anyone wanna join us?
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 1/4 cups flour, sift or stir before measuring
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside. Cream shortening, peanut butter, and sugars; beat in vanilla and egg. Stir in flour mixture, blending well. Shape mixture into 3/4-inch balls; place on greased baking sheets. Flatten each cookie with the tines of a fork *if the fork is sticking to the dough, dip it in flour periodically*.
Bake peanut butter cookies at 375° for about 10 to 15 minutes.
