I need a good peanut butter cookie recipe

My store stopped making them.  So naturally this must be a sign I will have to make my own.  It pains me to no end.

My peanut butter cookie must be crispy ... contain NO chocolate chips... and have some chunky peanuts in it.  And have a sweet salty taste. I guess I'm a whacko.... but I really dislike chocolate chips .. in my cookies.  Same goes for another fav Oatmeal cookies...they gotta be crispy and tasty...don't you go and put raisins in them or I will make your life miserable. 

Lord knows there are 5,789 trillion recipes on the internet but just for a change...just for once...good effin grief.... show me a recipe where I have all the ingredients in the house.  If I have go out and buy it ... the thrill is gone.  I'm kinda of a spur of the moment kinda gal ... so if you have a recipe that calls for chunky peanut butter, flour, baking soda or powder, butter, sugar or canola oil I got that stuff.

And yeah I like Macaroons.....I could marry them.

Don't get me started on shortbread cookies with little caramel chips in them.

Funny thing is... I never ate cookies ..ever. Until this year.  I must have one or two after supper.  It's the law.  Now I'm getting picky.  

My mom never made cookies as I remember. But she made the best sheet apple pie ever. I think the recipe is in  Mennonite Girls can cook

My husband is calling....we are putting up shelving in the basement for all the junk (important stuff) that is still sitting in the garage.  It's always nice to have your junk....neat looking.  BTW I just found three items I have been looking for forever....yes they are kinda junky....but man it was good to see them again.

Balonie...yours until IDK!

If you get a good PB cookie recipe, will you share it? I had a great oatmeal cookie recipe, no raisins. It had about 6 different spices in it! They were quite crispy, because I snuck a quarter cup or so of rice krispies into the dough.

My hubby doesn't much care for peanut butter so I never make peanut butter cookies...My favorite is sugar sprinkles...

This is my standard go-to recipe for peanut butter cookies.
I also have one that uses a yellow cake mix that my Mother always used.
Both are delicious. :)

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use Crunchy PB)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 375º.
2. Cream together butter, sugar & Peanut Butter
3. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well.
4. Add the flour, salt and baking soda. Mix well.
5. Roll into balls and press down with a fork dipped in sugar.
6. Bake for 10-12 minutes on un-greased cookie sheet (I usually grease my cookie sheet anyway)

Oh no, I was just wondering where in the Sam Hill you are, and saw that cookie recipe! I am going to use my girl will power and not make them, but then again maybe I will. :)

Sally said...

You have the recipe.

Did you make them?

Are you ignoring us?

Are you finished blogging?

Judy and I want to know!
