EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Peanut Butter Cookies

Who doesn’t go nuts for the buttery goodness of peanut butter cookies? The classic recipe ranks as an age-old favorite, but that's just the beginning. You probably have all the ingredients on hand for this treat: butter, sugar, flour, leavener, egg, and peanut butter. No need to break out the mixer for these easy cookies, and little hands love to help roll the dough and make the signature crisscross marks with a fork. (The crosshatch helps the cookies bake more evenly AND provides crunchy ridges!) The hardest part might be agreeing on which type of peanut butter to use – crunchy, smooth, or natural, which all work. Or try substituting different nut butters, such as almond, pistachio, or cashew, for a fresh take.

Stick with the classic recipe, sandwich a few with jam or peanut butter frosting, add flavorful mix-ins (like toffee, chocolate chips, dried fruit, or oats), make them gluten-free, embellish with piped chocolate, sprinkle with sugar, or don’t cook them at all. Just make sure to have a tall glass of milk on hand.
