Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies
In our family traditional Christmas cookies are nontraditional. We have for years made our Scottish Shortbread Cookies: http://www.rantsravesandrecipes.com/worlds-best-shortbread-cookie-recipe, and Peanut Butter Cookies. Both are fairly easy to make and both are absolutely delicious.
This recipe contains butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, salt, baking soda, flour (all-purpose)
Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 10 min
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1. Preheat oven to 350°
- 2. In the bowl of the mixer cream the butters. Once creamed beat in the sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla and combine completely, then add the dry ingredients. You should end with a stiff dough like for drop cookies.
- 3. Using a tablespoon or a # 60 scoop place batter onto a ungreased baking pan or one lined with a silpat. Press to flatten with the floured back of a fork in a criss cross pattern.
- 4. Bake for about 10 mins. Remove and cool on rack.
- 5. Since this is Christmas, I add a few red, white and green Christmas sprinkles to make them a little more festive.
