~ Best Peanut Butter Cookies ~
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 t salt
1 t baking soda
1/4 cup warm water
3 cups sifted flour
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and
peanut butter. Beat in the granulated and light brown
sugars and the salt. Beat in eggs, one at a time. In
a small bowl, dissolve baking soda in the warm water.
Add to the butter-sugar mixture and stir well. Stir
in flour. Mix until dough is smooth. Wrap dough in
plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough
is firm enough to be workable. Roll dough by hand into
1 inch balls. Arrange balls on ungreased (or parchment
paper lined) cookie sheets, 1 - 2 inches apart. Gently
press each ball flat with the tines of a fork; press
each cookie again, crosswise, to flatten to 1/4 inch
thickness and to create the characteristic crisscross
pattern. To prevent fork from sticking, occasionally
dip it in flour (or run under warm water). Bake for
15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cookies stand
for 10 minutes before transferring them to wire racks
to cool completely. Store in a tightly covered container.
Make larger cookies by forming the dough into large
balls about the size of golf balls. Bake 20 - 25
minutes until light brown.
Makes 5 dozen cookies
Give as a gift in a shaker box embellished with
Christmas graphics and ribbon. Great as a gift
alone or as an addition to any gift basket.
Add gift tag.
