best ever peanut butter cookie recipe

Peanut butter cookies are one of my favorite cookies after chocolate chip cookies. This is the best ever Peanut Butter Cookie recipe! If you like peanut butter cookies, this recipe is for you, I promise you will love them. The recipe is a very simple recipe too.  I’ll share a secret to these cookies, you have to use a wooden spoon, don’t use your mixer and don’t use a metal spoon. Using the metal seems to change the recipe.

RECIPE:
1-1/2 cup firmly packed light bronw sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter (Jiff is the best)
1/2 stick (or 1/2 cup) Crisco butter flavored
3 tablespoons of milk
1 table spoon vanilla
1 egg
1-1/2 all purpost flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 – 10 oz bag of Reeses peannut butter chips

Yield is about 2 dozen cookies

Combine brown sugar, peanut butter, Crisco, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat with wooden spoon until blended, add egg, mix until blended.

Sift flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add to cream mixture a little at a time until blended. Add bag of Reeses peanut butter chips.

Set in fridge for two hours before cooking…. I know, I know… you can’t wait!!  Go ahead and bake a batch, it will be hard to flatten with the fork but they will be ok.

Heat oven to 350 degrees or 325 for confection oven.

I use parchment paper to make clean up easier, but you can place directly on the cookie sheet. Round into balls and drop on baking sheet two inches apart. Try ot make all the balls the same size so they cook evenly. Flatten with a fork.

Bake one cookie sheet at a time, in my oven I bake for 3-1/2 minutes, then rotate pan and cook for another 3-1/2 minutes. Cook just until browning starts and remove from oven. Once you see browning, the cookies are done.
