This peanut butter cookie recipe is my grandmother’s. I have her recipe card–stained with butter–written in her curly script. She made these cookies in the Great Depression. So not only are these suckers tasty, they are best served with a glass of American history.
Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 egg
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
Combine butter, peanut butter, sugars, eggs. Add in baking soda, Then flour. Mix dough. Roll into balls and place onto parchment paper-line cookie trays. Flatten criss-cross with a fork (can dip fork into water so it doesn’t stick). Bake about 8-10 minutes in a 375 degree oven. I take them out a little early for chewy cookies.
Then I proceed to eat about seven. These Great Depression cookies are perfect for the anti-dieters.
