Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

Printable Recipe

The other peanut butter cookie recipes I have on this blog, are of a softer variety. These cookies are nice and thick and crisp, and are reminiscent of what you might find in a bakery.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Cream the butter and sugars for 1 minute, until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, beat for 1-2 minutes. Beat in peanut butter until well blended. Stir in the flour, cornstarch, soda and salt just until combined.

Roll into balls, using about 1 1/2 tbsp of dough. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, 2 1/2 - 3" apart. Dip a fork in sugar, and flatten cookies in a criss-cross fashion. Dip fork in sugar after each press.

Bake 350 degrees for about 12 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges.

Makes 3 dozen

I used to think I love chewy cookies, but have recently found great comfort in biting into a snap-happy crisp one!
