We Go Together...Like PB & J [Cookies!]

While my boyfriend was off at school, I sent him his favourite: peanut butter cookies! This recipe was my Grandma's and is sooo yummy! The outside has a bit of crunch because of the sugar, while the inside is soft and chewy.

  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup White Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg, vanilla, and peanut butter.
  3. In another smaller bowl, combine salt, baking soda, and flour. Gradually add to butter mixture.
  4. If using, add chocolate chips and mix well.
  5. Roll dough into 1 inch balls then roll in white sugar (or decorative sugar) and press with a fork.
  6. Bake for 10-12 mins or until lightly brown. Cool and enjoy!

You can also make a PB & J card if you are sending these to someone special. These cookies mail well too. I wrapped them in an old paper towel tube and foil and they were still moist after 3 days in the mail. Happy baking!
