It's National Biscuit Day!
So.... It is Peanut Butter Crispy Cookies Day here!
Yes, my grandmother always said I was the most contrary child she ever knew and she was correct through and through.
Well I didn't follow the exact directions either! I only used 1 cup of dark brown sugar and 1 cup of white granulated sugar to turn this old recipe into a new one - CRISPY! Some I pressed as they came out of the oven and some others I didn't. This crispy version made six dozen!
Peanut Butter Cookies from Grandma's Recipe Collection
Sift together -
2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
Blend well before adding flour mixture -
1 C peanut butter
2 C brown sugar
1/2 C butter (1 stick) I said BUTTER!! (Don't melt!)
1 tsp pure vanilla
1/2 C whole milk
Cool dough in refrigerator for a bit, then teaspoon 12 scoops to an ungreased cookie sheet. I don't usually press them into a ball and flatten with a sugared fork, because I don't feel it is necessary, but you can if you wish!
Bake - 350° oven 9-11 minutes depending on how crunchy you like them. The less time in the oven the chewier they are!
After baking, let them rest a bit before removing from sheet to rack to cool..
Makes about 4-5 dozen, depending on size.
