Recipe Linkup -- Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

Yesterday after my No Carb post, while I was sitting on my balcony drinking my coffee, I realized that my coffee creamer has carbs. Bummer! I've only recently become a coffee drinker, I guess it won't kill me to switch back to my Tazo Awake tea for a week.

What's Cooking?? with House of Perry

I made peanut butter cookies when M's brother was in town because those are his favorite. I haven't made peanut butter cookies in years so I was on a brand new search for a brand new recipe.

I actually used the Crisco recipe for peanut butter cookies, however I also added my own touch. I was flustered and in a hurry the day I made them so I don't have any picture to post of the process. Sad face. 

Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup Crisco
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
3 tbs. milk
1 tbs vanilla extract
1 egg
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine -- peanut butter -- crisco -- milk -- vanilla -- in large bowl. 
Beat until blended.
Add egg.
Beat until blended. 

In separate bowl, combine -- flour -- baking soda -- salt. 
Add to creamed mixture. 
Drop rounded tablespoons on cookie sheet. 
*Optional to leave as round balls or flatten with fork.

Bake for 7 - 8 minutes. 

Check out these beauties!

Picture not taken with my DSLR, which I DO need to use more.

Because I like to do things differently, I used crunchy peanut butter in place of creamy peanut butter. I am not even a crunchy peanut butter fan, I just thought I'd be different. I also added Recesses Peanut Butter chips because I love them!
