Sunday, May 29th, 2015. My daughter made her first batch of cookies (pretty much) all by herself. She did a terrific job!
Peanut Butter Cookies
3 cups Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Butter, room temperature
1/2 cup Canola Oil
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Peanut Butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Mix together flour, soda, and salt. Set aside.
In large mixing bowl beat the butter, oil and sugars with a hand mixer until creamy. Add the eggs, peanut butter, and vanilla and continue to beat until completely mixed together.
Add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture and combine using a wooden spoon. Form cookie dough into balls (I used a cookie scoop that holds about 1 tablespoon of batter) and place on a cookie sheet. Press each cookie slightly in a crisscross pattern with a fork that has been dipped in sugar.
Bake cookies in a 350 degree oven for about 12 – 15 minutes.
These cookies feel light and a little crisp on the outside, a little chewy on the inside. You should get about 48 cookies.
