How to Make Old Fashioned Peanut Butter cookies
- Preheat the ovento350 degrees.Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a standing mixer, or hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars about 2 minutes, until fluffy. Add the egg and beat well, then the vanilla, the peanut butter and the molasses, beating well after each.
- In another bowl whisk your dry ingredients together and add these to the butter mixture all at once and beat at a low speed until just mixed.Scrape down and make sure there are no patches of unmixed flour or butter.
- Spoon out walnut size balls of dough onto the baking sheet. Using a fork and a bowl of white sugar, press the fork flat onto the cookie,dipping in sugar with each press. First going in one direction, then the other. Usually only 2 or 3 presses. These do not spread much so do not have to be spaced far apart.Bake for 9-10 minutes until golden brown around the edges.
