2nd to the Easiest PB Cookie Recipe

I can't remember where I came across this cookie recipe. I have a feeling it's pretty standard though. My friends and family came up with awesome ideas for cookies for me to try. I was really intrigued by the bacon and chocolate chip cookie. At last I was the only one in my house hold. What if I didn't like them once they were done and I had to throw away 30 odd cookies? I just couldn't commit. These particular cookies were going to have jam hearts, but I wanted to try the recipe as it stands alone. That way for future baking I can play with measurements or add what ever ingredients (chocolate chips, butter toffee) I want. As far as prep goes it's a one bowl type of deal, and mixing doesn't cause you to have buff arms like other dough does.The end cookie was a good size and baked evenly (I rolled the dough into 1 inch balls). It does call for salt and I had just used a pinch. The edges were crispy with a chewier inside, thanks to the brown sugar. Super peanut buttery and delicious. Here is the recipe to try it out for yourself.

  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Shortening
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Salt
         In a large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar, shortening, and peanut butter. Beat in egg. Add in flour,baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Roll into balls. Press with fork vertically and horizontally. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 350 F.


    1. I want to try peanut butter cookies since I am kind of sick of eating chocolate cookies. I think my kids will also love peanut butter cookies. Thanks for the simple recipe.

    3. This will be a great recipe for our baking activity in my kindergarten class. This easy peanut butter recipe will make them enjoy just by adding some sprinkles or some frosting to make their own customized cookies.
