Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

Another recipe from Grandma's 1929 recipe book. I copied the recipe from Grandma's book and wrote on the back of the recipe card that I was 9 years old. I still remember writing it - I love that! If you've been following you know I use organic and homemade ingredients (such as homemade peanut butter, organic sugars, etc) but this is the original recipe, feel free to substitute as you like or use the original. These are soft, chewy and amazing! If you need a gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe, we posted one earlier that is almost as good as Grandma's! Here's the link Simply Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies.
1 c butter, softened
1 c white sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Cream the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla together. Add the peanut butter and beat on low just until blended. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until blended. The dough should be fairly cool. I used a small cookie scoop and placed each round cookie on parchment lined baking sheets. Dip a fork into some sugar and flatten with a fork on each cookie. Bake at 350F for 12-14 minutes. Let cool on cooling rack and store in an airtight container.
Love and peace,
