    Peanut Butter Cookie

    I have a cousin recently placed in a nursing home with some sort of dementia. He loves any kind of cookie with peanut butter in it. All I have is an old-fasioned Betty Crocker type where you criss/cross it with a fork. I just wondered if anybody had a newer one that they would share?

    I love her recipes!! She is on Facebook and Pinerest.

    Easy Peasy Peanut Butter Cookies

    2 cups peanut butter
    2 cups sugar
    2 eggs, slightly beaten
    Optional add ins (I used peanut butter chips)

    Mix all of it together to the point that you can scoop it and roll into a ball. Roll into a ball about the size of a small walnut and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
    With a fork press a crisscross pattern on the top of each one. You will need to wet the fork in warm water after each cookie. You can sprinkle the tops with a little more sugar, or not. It's up to you! Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Don't over bake or they will get too hard. This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies.

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I rolled out the same peanut butter dough as used for criss-crossed cookies using powdered sugar instead of flour and used cookie cutters on it. They turn out great...practice until you get the doneness you like...some like them soft and some like them crispy. If you want to add more flavor, you can frost with choc frosting or melted chips.

    1 box dry cake mix [ yellow is best]

    This makes a LOT, but you could cut it down. The recipe I used to make for DGS and DH was called 'Monster Cookies'...can't find it, but this is similar.
    12 eggs...........................................3 pounds peanut butter
    2 pounds brown sugar .....................8 t. baking soda
    4 cups white sugar ..........................1 1/2 t. salt
    2 T. vanilla.......................................18 cups oatmeal
    1 T. corn syrup
    1 pound M&M candies
    1 pound chocolate chips
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients in a dish pan. Mix well with hands. Drop onto cookie sheets (6 to a sheet) with ice cream scoop; flatten slightly. Bake for 12-15 minutes, being careful not to overbake. Cool on wire rack.
    NOTE: For a real peanut butter lover, you could sub peanut butter M&M's and peanut butter chips. I think my recipe also had peanuts.

    They all sound good. I just gained 10 lbs. reading them all.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Here is one that has been all over Pinterest, no flour.

    1 cup sugar
    • 1 cup natural peanut butter

      1 large egg

    1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

    2) Mix all three ingredients
    3) Scoop out the dough and roll it into one inch balls
    4) Place on prepared cookie sheet 2 inches apart
    5) Use a flat bottomed cup to somewhat flatten each dough ball out or press flat with a fork
    6) Cook for exactly 9 minutes
    7) Once removed from the oven, let the cookies cool for a few minutes before placing them on a cooling rack
    8) Recipe should yield about 36 cookies
    *Best to eat after they cool (they are firmer)
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    These are yummy, no-bake and taste like a peanut butter cup, more a candy than a cookie. You can use a cookie sheet, or for thicker cookies, a 9x13 pan.

    2 C peanut butter
    3/4 cup butter or margarine (soften to room temperature)
    3 3/4 C powdered sugar
    3/4 C brown sugar
    3/4 t vanilla
    6 oz chocolate chips
    2 T butter

    Combine first 5 ingredients until smooth. Press into cookie sheet.
    In a saucepan, melt the chips and butter. Spread over mixture in cookie sheet. Chill at least 2 hours before cutting into small squares.

    Use a chocolate chip cookie recipe and put in peanut butter chips instead.

    I've been watching the posts thinking someone would give the peanut blossoms recipe. You know the one, Hershey's kisses pressed in the middle. My grandkids love them and I have to make tons at Christmas even though they aren't really a Christmas cookie. They are certainly peanut buttery.... I use chunky peanut butter but you can use the creamy style as well. I set the tray of hot cookies outside in the garage to let the kisses harden back up..... that probably won't work in the summer months. You'll have to put them in the freezer. The garage is a freezer in December for me.

    1/2 c. granulated sugar
    1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 c. shortening
    1/2 c. peanut butter
    1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 egg
    2 Tbsp. milk
    1 tsp vanilla
    granulated sugar for rolling
    about 48 Hershey's candy kisses, unwrapped

    Oven 375 degrees

    In a large mixing bowl, combine sugars, shortening and peanut butter. Blend well. Add dry ingredients, mix well, then liquids. Mix well, again. Shape into 1" balls (I use a cookie scoop) and roll in additional sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and place about 1" apart because they spread. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately top each cookie with a candy kiss. Press down firmly until cookie cracks on the edges. Allow to cool.

    I've used the Betty Crocker recipe....or the peanut butter cookie in a bag mix, mix according to directions, roll in nickel sized balls and place in greased mini muffin pans. Bake for only 5 minutes, remove from oven and push a mini-Reese cup in the middle. Let cool completely. remove from pan and eat. YUM YUM.
