Peanut Butter Cookies

My mother always said it was important to share recipes. (She thought it was a shame for recipes to be lost.) When I was growing up, mom baked a lot of peanut butter cookies.  This is her simple recipe:

Ruth's Peanut Butter Cookies


1 Cup butter

1 Cup peanut butter

1 Cup white sugar

1 Cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups flour (add 1/2 to 1 cup extra flour if needed so dough will not be sticky.)

Mix ingredients

Drop golf ball sized portions of dough onto cookie sheet. Double cross the top with a fork (press the fork down on top of the cookies) and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

My alteration for Valentines Day (pictured above): I skipped the fork step and I pressed the chocolate hearts into the cookies immediately after taking them out of the oven.

Tami - I love that you used hearts of chocolate. I usually use Kisses. Really sweet!

thanks for sharing the recipe! now I may have to haul out our recipe for p.b. cookies and bake a few too...we roll in sugar and top with a Hershey kiss...but your holiday heart was a great alternative.
