For this month’s Taste & Create I was paired with Christina of In the Garden of Eatin’. Because I’m on a cookie kick I decided to go with her peanut butter cookies. I think its pretty cool that Christina and I both chose something made with peanut butter to make from each other’s blog!
I followed the ingredient list with the exception of the decorating sugar to sprinkle on top. Instead I dipped my fork in regular sugar and pressed the tines into the cookie to flatten and give the crisscross shape. Also, I baked some of them for less time so they would be softer for Grumpy and a few for a longer time so they would be crunchier for me. This was a great cookie with great peanut butter flavor and easy to adapt to Grumpy and my taste!
Peanut Butter Cookies
From the Garden of Eatin’
1/2 Cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 Cup white sugar
3/4 Cups Peanut butter (creamy)

1 Tablespoon Vanilla

3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
Makes 2 Dozen Cookies
Heat oven to 375.
In a large bowl combine brown sugar, white sugar, peanut butter, butter, milk and vanilla. Mix at medium speed until well blended. Add your egg and mix until just combined.
Add flour, baking soda and salt while mixing on low speed.
Roll 1 tbsp of mix into a ball and place on a foiled baking sheet (I used my airbake sheet and didn’t use the foil). Continue until you have finished all the dough. Leave 1 1/2 inches apart on cookie sheet. With a fork press down with a criss cross pattern dipping fork into granulated sugar inbetween criss crossing. Bake 7 – 9 minutes.
