Peanut Butter Cookies

This is the peanut butter cookie my Mom and Grandma used to make. It's still one of my favorite cookies. When these sweet, salty morsels of happiness come out of the oven, they are just as good today as they were when I was a kid. The recipe originally appeared on the Skippy peanut butter label in the early 1950's. It produces cookies that are golden brown with wonderful flavor and a light crispiness that melts in your mouth. Basically, it's everything you would expect a good peanut butter cookie to be.

The Best Peanut Butter Cookie EVER!!!

Excellent recipe! So easy to make. Thank you for sharing it!

These cookies are awesome. I did the crispy version. They flew off the plate during a dinner party I had.

I made the crispy cookies. Use the staggering method described, they spread. I used 1/2 butter & 1/2 shortening.

Chose the chewier cookie, absolutely amazing!

Great recipe. I added caramel bits to this recipe and it tasted wonderful.

No flavor waste of time and ingredients .

My husband and I made this yesterday and it was awesome! We substituted the butter with coconut oil 1-to-1 and baked it immediately and they came out super crispy! Everyone loved it!
