Hello! This week’s recipe is another favorite of my family — it’s my son, Dustin’s, favorite.
This cookie is one that is always on my holiday table, and usually the first to disappear. It’s a very old and simple one, and quick to put together and make. I always double the recipe.
You might want to grab a cold cup of milk for when they come out of the oven all fresh and warm…
Crackle Top Peanut Butter Cookies
-3/4 cup margarine (room temperature)
-3/4 cup sugar
-About 1/2 cup additional sugar to roll the unbaked cookie balls in.
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-3/4 cup peanut butter (smooth)
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1, 1/3 cups of flour
-1/2 teaspoon soda
-1/2 teaspoon salt
First, beat together Margarine, sugar, brown sugar and egg until light and fluffy.
Next, add peanut butter, vanilla, soda and salt. Mix in flour a little at a time. Then, refrigerate to chill. This makes it easier to roll into balls.
Once the dough is chilled, roll it into about a 2 inch ball and roll in a bowl with sugar in it to coat the ball. Then put the balls on a cookie sheet and slightly flatten the ball with a fork.
Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 minutes. Enjoy!
