Peanut Butter!

Hey Everyone! I'm going to a party, and you're invited too!  It's a great way to get noticed, meet new friends, have some fun, and win great prizes! The party starts tomorrow and goes for a whole week. It's hosted by 5MinutesforMom a great blog managed by adorable twin mommys who promote other mommy's, their websites and blogs.

Now here is what I have done to prepare for the party :o) I baked some very yummy Peanut Butter Cookies! My husband and I agree that we do not like peanut butter cookies, but we like these, I also like them because they are fast and easy to make.
Here is the recipe out of my Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book (11th Edition)...

  • Makes about 36 cookies 
  • Prep time: 25 minutes
  • Bake time: 7 minutes per batch
  • Oven temp: 375
    • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
    • 1/2 cup peanut butter
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup honey or 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
    • 1/2 teaspoon powder
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
... additional Granulated sugar to coat dough in
  1. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter or margarine and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar, honey, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat till combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in the egg and vanilla till combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in the rest. If necessary, cover and chill dough till easy to handle.
  2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in additional sugar to coat. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten by making crisscross marks with a fork. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 7 to 9 minutes or till bottoms are lightly browned.
Now be sure to taste a warm one for me... ohhh yummy yummy!
