This is another attempt to use up stuff from our pantry. I don't like peanut butter cookies, but my husband loves them. I think they are too dry. But, I had some crunchy peanut butter that no one wanted to eat, so I decided to make cookies. I looked up some recipes and ended up just making up my own. They are much more moist than regular peanut butter cookies. I bet everyone will be happy and no one will complain about the crunchy peanut butter being gone!
Here is the recipe:
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup sugar (I used white, but next time I will try brown)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tablespoon flour (I was afraid the dough was too sticky, but it probably would have worked without this)
I also put a pinch of salt in, but one of the recipes I looked at had you sprinkle salt on the top of the cookies instead. So, I did both since I couldn't make up my mind. Next time I will do one or the other.
Mix ingredients. Roll into balls. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cool on try for a couple of minutes before removing onto cooling rack.
