More Cookies!

Baked some peanut butter cookies for Chong on Christmas Eve.  I was trying to time it right so the cookies would be ready when he got home but he got home earlier than I had expected while the cookies were still baking in the oven.  I halved the recipe so my measures are different from the ingredient listed below.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda


  1. Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.

Maybe next time, I’ll flatten them and see how he likes it.  I think that regardless of how they look like, he’s going to devourer them!
