Classic Peanut Butter Cookies {You Will Want To Know How They Are Made}

7:37 PM

Hannah, my granddaughter, made these Classic Peanut Butter Cookies during our cookie marathon I had when the Grandchildren were here. These effortless cookies have that sweet and salty flavor that makes them so irresistible.

When you see a crisscross pattern on cookies, you automatically know that they are Classic Peanut Butter Cookies.  As history goes, the crisscross was popularized by Pillsbury in the 1930's.

Hannah did a great job making sure that all the cookies were the same size and the crisscross was just right. You could say that they are made with pure love!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (I use Jiff)
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven 375 degrees.

In a bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, mix together peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, milk, vanilla, and egg.

In a bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamy mixture and mix until well blended. 

Using a scoop that measures 1 tablespoon, drop dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper 2-inches apart. Flatten each cookie with a fork in a crisscross manner.

Bake 7-8 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on parchment paper 2 minutes or until cookie has set before moving to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
