Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

These are real deal "what your Grandma used to make" cookies.

They store well.

Travel well.

And "Gift" very well!


I used a large serving fork to make a larger criss cross pattern on the cookie tops. Using Sugar in the Raw or Demerara sugar on the tops, will make a crunchy contrast to the soft chewy cookie.

To get started, in a mixer, combine the first 5 ingredients. Add dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix well with a whisk. Add to wet ingredients. Mix until it all just starts to come together. Wrap in parchment paper And form into a square that is 1 inch thick. Place in fridge for an hour.

It should look like this:



Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap and cut into 1 inch squares.


Roll into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.



Using a fork, make criss cross pattern on top of each cookie. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes.



Cool before storing. Yields 3 dozen.
