Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

Hi – it’s Gavin! I hope you’re having a great weekend. I’m back trying to earn some more money for Disney World. I’ve been working very hard and doing extra chores to have some money. Today, mommy planned a party for our friend (Kristyn – it was a baby shower). A lot of people came over. And there was lots of yummy food. One of those yummy recipes was these easy Peanut Butter Cookies. We’ve made them for a long time and everyone loves them. They are soft, delicious and easy to make too!

There are so many different types of peanut butter cookies, but these ones are easy, chewy and soft. My mom says that’s how all peanut butter cookies should be, and I agree!

How to make Peanut Butter Cookies

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine sugars, shortening, peanut butter, salt and vanilla. Mix well. Add eggs and milk, mix until creamy. Fold in flour and baking soda.
  2. Roll dough into 1 – 1 1/2 inch balls and roll in a bowl of sugar.
  3. Place on greased cookie sheet and make a criss cross on top using a fork.
  4. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Let cool and ENJOY!

These cookies have creamy peanut butter in them, which make them so good. It’s something that I love and if you love it too, then I think you’ll love these cookies just as much as we did!

    What does the oven need to be preheated to?

      Lil' Luna

      Kind of important info! Just updated the recipe. It’s 350. Thanks for the heads up. 😉

    Hi! Your recipe calls for “shortening”. Which is best to use, Crisco, margarine, butter?
    Recipe sounds scrumptious! Thanks!

      Kristyn Merkley

      They are so so good!! I like to use crisco. As long as it says shortening, it can be any brand. Hope that helps! Hope you like them!
