It’s a rainy day here in Kingston. With the start of fall, I’m craving peanut butter cookies. My favourite recipe is from the original Fanny Farmer cookbook. It’s a great cookbook with all classic recipes. These ones are thin and crispy rather than dense and chewy.
1/4 lb butter
1/2 cup chunky style peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease some cookie sheets or line with a silpat. Cream butter and peanut butter. Add sugars. Add egg and vanilla, beat well. Mix salt, baking soda and flour. Combine butter mixture with flour mixture. Arrange by teaspoons on the cookie sheets about an inch or so apart. Press each with a Flores spoon. Bake about 7 minutes. Eat.
