I had a helper one day last week, Gannon, my grandson. He loves to help me bak so I thought we’d make some cookies.
A kind blog reader was weeding out her cookbooks and happily sent some my way. This was one of them.
I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try…
I’ve tried many Peanut Butter Cookie recipes but have yet to find one that I’ve claimed as “my recipe”. I’ve had ones I’ve liked but I’ve not found THE RECIPE that I will always go to if I want Peanut Butter Cookies. I find most Peanut Butter cookies to be dry and I like moist cookies.
This one sounded promising…and different as these were frosted.
In typical Peanut Butter Cookies fashion, the dough was very dense.
The recipe says to roll them into a ball. I just use a scoop instead. I think it’s more sanity and much faster.
In THIS SET, I use the 1 Tablespoon size.
I typically push mine down with a fork but this recipe said potato masher. I gave it a try and ended up going back to a fork.
Just as the kids walked in the door from the bus, the cookies were ready and frosted. I didn’t get a picture of them.
So you’ll have to settle for a next-day picture. This was all that was left.
The kids loved them…I liked them too. I am willing to settle that this can be my Frosted Peanut Butter Cookie, but I’d really like to find a plain Peanut Butter Cookie recipe that I’d claim as mine…I guess the hunt is still on.
