Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies are simply a classic cookie recipe that just hits the spot. Sweet and savory they’re a perfect anytime treat. This recipe couldn’t be any easier and is basically foolproof. While it makes a traditional, basic cookie, it could be a great base for all sorts of imaginative and tasty creations!
Making the cookies is simple. This recipe is a great one to practice basic cookie making techniques. Before proceeding, make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature! This is an important part of the process and can’t be skipped. If you’re ready to get baking and your butter and eggs are still cold, you can put them in a bowl of warm (not hot!) water for about 10 minutes and that should help them reach room temp.
While delicious, these cookies are pretty traditional with not a lot of pizzazz. However – I think they’re a great canvas for all sorts of delicious ideas. You could dip them in melted chocolate and let set for a chocolate and peanut butter treat. You could add all sorts of different types of mix-ins: peanuts, chocolate chips, etc. And they would also make GREAT cookies for ice cream sandwiches. There are a lot of fun directions you could go in!
