I feel like EVERYONE has a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies by now. If not, you are missing out on a life-changing and delicious treat. This peanut butter recipe has always been a favorite in this house. Honestly, they’re usually gone by the next day, leaving me wondering if I should make a second batch or add more with the original recipe. My husband will eat these cookies like there’s no tomorrow with a big glass of milk.
This recipe calls for shortening, but I have another recipe using butter which I like the taste of better. These were still quite good though. If you haven’t already, go and check my recipe of 3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. 13-Minute 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
I realized something today. The past few days I have been glued to the internet perusing different food blogs. It is amazing the amount of time I can spend looking at one site. Which takes me to another site and leads me to another, and so on. I’m sure you have all at one point experienced this.
It’s like when I first started Facebook. looking at her friends led me to her friends, oh there’s someone I know, and then there are her friends. Hours and hours of internet time. What I realized a few minutes ago, as I was looking at this one beautiful blog, was that…I am a victim of blog envy.
Oh my gosh, the pictures, the writing, and the recipes. (sigh) Now I want to stay glued to my computer 24/7, but the all-important baking won’t be done. Certainly, my house would never be clean and we all know how much of a struggle that’s been.
I know, it’s only been three weeks, but I want to shoot for the moon, take this nationally, internationally even! I know, it already is national and international because it’s on the web and all this from a family shared computer and my husband’s laptop.
I’m just letting you all know that I’m excited about where this is going and I have a good feeling, a really good feeling. I’m blessed to have people actually reading this stuff. AND to top it off, you are all telling me you’re enjoying it! For that, I am extremely flattered and grateful.
So, for all of you who have joined us (me, myself and I) these past three weeks, I thank you and encourage you to stay along for the ride. If you’re interested in something similar and want other recipes, try out these other bloggers that I’m sure you’ll love! As I said, I am really excited about this and have been supported in many different ways. Who knows what will happen next?
This chocolate zucchini cake from iambaker is perfect if you’re craving chocolate, but want that lighter recipe that others don’t have.
Iheartnaptime has a great recipe called scotcheroos that I’m positive will be a keeper for years to come. What’s even better, it’s a no-bake dessert too!

Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 cup shortening
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 3 cups flour
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees and grease cookie sheets.
- In a mixing bowl, thoroughly cream the shortening, vanilla, and sugars.
- Add the eggs and beat well.
- Stir in the peanut butter.
- Mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda, and add to the peanut butter mixture. Combining thoroughly.
- Form into tiny balls with the palm of your hands and place on cookie sheets.
- Press each cookie twice with the back of the fork to make a crisscross design.
- Bake about 8-10 minutes, or until firm.
They were tiny, a pop-in-your-mouth size which was cool, but they took forever to bake on the larger cookie sheet. I am not kidding, probably an extra 10 minutes making it a total bake time of 20 minutes if not longer. I kept hitting the timer for another two minutes and was becoming extremely frustrated because they were taking so long. In the end, it was all good though. People liked them, but I prefer the buttery ones.
When I took out the jar of peanut butter, the dog jolted up and stared at me for the longest time wondering if I was going to give him any. Poor thing. I swear, he can smell it the instant I take the top off. Next time I’ll give him some and he can have as much as his heart desires. Or, until he chews the plastic which will be the end of that.
