Weekend Baking 1.1

Premier Edition

For weeks now Aaron has been bugging me for peanut butter cookies. Apparently someone at the movie we went to a few weeks back had smuggled some in, and they looked mighty tasty to him.

I've made peanut butter cookies many times in the past and they've been met with approval, but not of the enthusiastic variety. They weren't like the ones he used to make with his mom, he said. Growing up with a dad that loves peanut butter cookies above all others (even though he doesn't eat peanut butter in any other fashion) I thought I'd be good at baking them. My dad had never complained.

Apparently I was wrong.

So I put in some research time and came up with what I thought would be the perfect recipe. And it sat on our counter for a week before Aaron decided it was high time he got to baking (and stopped depending on his lazy wife to do all the baked goods making in the house).

Lo and behold, these are some freakily delicious cookies. I like to enjoy them with an ice cold glass of milk (and use it as a way to get in my daily dairy requirements). Aaron likes them fine anyway they come as long as there are plenty left over.

With this recipe there are; it made nearly 4 dozen large cookies. So go ahead and bake some Old Fashioned Peanut Butter cookies this weekend. I really don't think you'll regret it.

A couple of notes:

Apparently Aaron read somewhere that Skippy is the best brand to use in peanut butter cookies, so that's what we used.

This recipe yields a crispy cookie, which is quite yummy dipped in milk. If you'd prefer a softer cookies, there are suggestions in the comments left with the recipe.

Next week I bring you something that brings together a few of my favorite things, namely s'mores and brownies. I can hardly wait!

For some reason, I do not love peanut butter cookies. This is a mystery because generally speaking? I love all things peanut butter!
