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.

Delicious! Definitely remind me of the peanut butter cookies my Grandma used to make! I split the dough in two (once prepared) so we could see if we preferred the chewy or the crispy and all votes went to chewy. Great recipe - thanks!

As usual, another great recipe from sgrishka, but not your "add water and mix" recipe. Well worth making for sure. Invoked images of Mom baking them. Do try, well worth it!

WOW! Thank you for posting this recipe. Peanut butter cookies are my favorite and I've wanted a good recipe for ages... this one is the best I've ever had and will continue making it. if you like peanut butter tasting cookies (most don't have enough flavor) then this is the one for you. Chewy or crispy you won't be disappointed.

These cookies are so delicious! I couldn't believe how good the dough smelled when I was rolling the balls. They smelled just like my mom's peanut butter fudge. Amazing!

Awesome recipe, my family loved it. We opted for the crunchier cookie. Next time we will try refrigerating the dough a suggested.
