12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day Eight

One of my favorite cookies, taste-wise, is the peanut butter cookie. It's nothing special to look at, but it is delicious! 

Peanut Butter Cookies:


12 oz butter

8 oz brown sugar

8 oz granulated sugar

1 tsp salt

12 oz peanut butter

4 oz eggs

1 lb pastry flour (all purpose will work too)

1 tsp baking soda


Cream together the butter, sugars, salt, and peanut butter. Add eggs and mix. Sift together the flour and baking soda and stir into the butter sugar mixture. Roll into small balls and place on a sheet pan. Dip a fork in sugar and press into cookies horizontally, dip into sugar again, and press into cookies vertically. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-12 minutes, then let cool on pan.
