Peanut Butter Cookies
Updated: May 15
These are another favorite from my Fanny Farmer Cookbook! I’ve always loved peanut butter cookies and often add chocolate chips.
1/4 lb. butter 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1 egg 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup unbleached flour
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and grease some cookie sheets (or use nonstick pans or pans lined with parchment paper). Cream the butter and peanut butter together. Beat in the two sugars, then add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Mix together the salt, baking soda, and flour and add to the first mixture, combining thoroughly. Arrange by teaspoonfuls on the cookie sheets, about 1-1/2 inches apart. Press each one flat with the back of a floured spoon. Bake about 7 minutes or until firm.
