Peanut Butter Cookies

Usually after I make cookies or brownies I will bag them and put them in the freezer so they will stay fresh. However with these cookies, they barely make it into the freezer. We like peanut butter cookies, however some peanut butter cookies are a little to heavy on the peanut butter and they are to over powering. These however are perfect and it is a super simple recipe too. I got this recipe out of a local cookbook called Susie's Cook Book. Check out what else people are cooking this week HERE

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
I actually ususally don't make them with the chocolate chips and the last couple of times that I made them, I used sunflower butter and they have turned out good as well.

2 cups AP Flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter/margarine, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBsp water
optional - 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips. Beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in chocolate chips. Place rounded cookie on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 mintues. Yields 6 1/2 dozen

  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog! Oh my goodness I've never attempted bread. You know, I'm a good cook but not a good baker! Even my cookies don't turn out that great. I want to make some m&m chocolate chip for my sugar-tooth boys, but I'm afraid they'll turn out bad. Any EASY recipes you want to throw my way would be greatly appreciated!!! :)
