Sweet aromas filling your home from all those yummy goodies you have been baking. And happy little faces, pleased with the results!
I thought I would share a simple recipe with you. Nothing too fancy, but maybe it will help you kick off your baking season and get your juices flowing to make more! I like to bake a few times a week, mainly because my Hubby is always asking if I made him something special... So here it is, my first cookie of this Holiday season, but certainly not the last!
Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (I have a yummy Homemade Brown Sugar Recipe)
1 egg (at room temperature)
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup flour
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream butters and sugars together until smooth; add beaten egg. Add the dry ingredients (sift before adding). Scoop a small spoon full (I used a small ice cream scooper) and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, until they look nicely browned. Cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes then move to cooling rack to let sit for another 10 minutes. Then ENJOY!
I used a yummy family recipe and can't wait to try out more!
