Simple, easy and cheesy! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!
To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
- 1 c butter
- 1 1/2 c granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 c peanut butter – recommend creamy as it slices smoothly
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 c sifted flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
1. Cream butter and sugar thoroughly. Add peanut butter mixing well. Add vanilla and eggs: beat well. Sift flour, soda and salt together. Stir into mixture. Shape dough into rectangular roll, wrap in plastic wrap or waxed paper, chill until firm (or freeze), slice and bake in preheated 400 degrees oven for 10 minutes, ungreased cookie sheet.
2. This dough freezes well, may be sliced and baked frozen but may require slightly more baking time.
3. Can be made large (rounded tablespoons of dough) do not grease the pan. Do the classic criss-cross with a fork that has been dipped in sugar. Bake them for only 9 minutes and they come out well and make 4 dozen cookies.
