Peanut Butter Cookies
Today's recipe is a simple one. It is for peanut butter cookies. My family loved these cookies, and the cris-cross fork pattern on top is the way we always marked them. My kids love to make this cookie, and maybe yours will too.
2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter (You can use smooth or creamy peanut butter)
1/8 to 1/4 cup Irish Cream or Hazelnut cappuccino powder
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
Mix butter, sugar, and peanut butter together. Add eggs beating well after each addition. Pour in the vanilla extract. Turn the mixer to a stir and add the cappuccino powder, baking soda, and flour. Mix until all the flour is incorporated and you have a stiff dough.
Drop onto cookie sheets by rounded teaspoonfuls and then make the cris-cross pattern over the top with the tines of a fork.
Bake for about 6 minutes or until golden brown.
