Aunt Laura’s Peanut Butter Cookies

on March 24, 2010

Today’s “family” recipe is from my husband’s cousin Ginny. This was her mother’s (Aunt Laura) recipe. I think most people like peanut butter cookies  so give it a try! It makes 8 dozen cookies so share with your friends!

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup butter or shortening

2/3 cup peanut butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs, beaten

3 cups flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

DIRECTIONS:

1. Cream the shortening/butter, peanut butter and sugar together.

2. Add the beaten eggs.

3. Sift the dry ingredients and add to the butter, peanut butter and sugar mixture. Add the vanilla and mix.

4. Roll the dough into little balls and place on cookie sheet. Press with a fork dipped in flour.

5. Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes.


** The recipe I got from Ginny did not specify if the cookie sheets should be greased or not. I am thinking that with a cup of butter it is safe not to. But, feel free to grease if you want or place on parchment paper on the cookie sheets.  I am also unsure how large the dough balls should be but I guess if you want big cookies make them big, etc.
