Of all the bread spreads in the market, my favorite is peanut butter! Not only is it healthy, but since I love peanuts, it has a very wonderful “nutty” smell to it that I particularly like.
So of course when it comes to peanut butter cookies, I’m an absolute fan. I especially love using home-made peanut butter that my mum makes. Here’s my tried and true recipe.
Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies
– 1 cup Sugar
– 3/4 cup Butter or Margarine
– 3/4 cup Peanut Butter
– 2 cups Self Rising Flour
– 1/8 teaspoon Salt (If using Margarine; don’t put salt)
YIELD: 18 pcs
1.) Preheat oven
to 350 °F/ 180 °C. Lightly grease and flour a cookie sheet and set aside.
2.) In a medium bowl, sift flour and salt together; set aside.
3.) In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter and peanut butter. Cream
until light and fluffy, for about 3 minutes.
4.) Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. You can also use your hands to mix the dough until it’s a cookie dough consistency.
5.) Scoop the cookie dough using a regular dining table spoon. Make 1-inch balls and place on the cookie sheet.
Gently press your palm on the balls to flatten them slightly and then make an indentation with the tines of a fork to make a nice pattern.
6.) Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove cookies from oven and transfer to a cooling rack
