Peanut Butter Cookies and Awards

Digging into the history of my experiments, If you remember I had planned to make Irish potato candy for which I had got this peanut butter. Since I had the biggest flop show of turning it into disaster halwa, I had the peanut butter waiting to change its form for quite some time. So here is my cookies that amazingly turned out well. ;)


Peanut butter - 1 cup
Butter - 1/3 cup
Light brown sugar - 1 cup
Egg - 1
Milk - 3 tblsp
Vanilla extract - 2 tbsp
All purpose flour (Maida) - 1 3/4 cup
Baking soda - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F(190 degrees C). In a medium bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and peanut butter until smooth. Stir in egg, milk and vanilla. Now sift flour, baking soda and salt together and then stir into the peanut butter mixture until well blended. Now make small balls and press them with your hand and place it on the bake ware. Bake for 8 to 10 min. Once done transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

You can add your favorite topping to the cookies like cashews, almond, Hershey's kisses chocolates or even Cadbury gems. This makes it look more interesting. :)
Peanut butter cookies is ready to eat. :) Enjoy making, happy eating :)
