Observing whatever tickles my fancy

Peanut Butter Cookies

Today I baked my first batch of peanut butter cookies.

The few followers I have will say, “What?  You never made peanut butter cookies before?”

No, I have not.

“Why not?”

Because I hate peanut butter cookies.  If peanut butter cookies are the only option on the table I will not eat them.  I dislike peanut butter.  Peanut butter is only used as a last resort when there’s nothing in the house but bread and jam….or a banana.  I will eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches, but I don’t enjoy it.

“If you hate peanut butter cookies then why did you bake some?”

Ah, well, there it is.  A fine young man fixed my fizzled computer.  I suggested that I would pay him in bread or some sweet treat.  He laughed.  I asked what his favorite cookie was.  Peanut butter, he answered.   I grimaced and wondered if there was any peanut butter left in the dusty jar on the counter.  Was there a recipe in the Betty Crocker Cookbook?.

Betty Crocker pulled through and the dusty Skippy jar had enough of the creamy gunk for the recipe.

The first and last batch of peanut butter cookies I will ever make.

You must agree that a batch of peanut butter cookies is a better deal than paying the Geek Squad at Best Buy more money then they’re worth.  (The worth of the Geek Squad, that is, not the cookies.)

  1. Lol, I never made peanut butter cookies before either! The only time I eat peanut butter is when there’s chocolate around it. 🙂

    • Good to know there’s another that has never made these cookies before. Shudder the thought of ruining a good piece of chocolate by putting peanut butter in the middle of it.

  2. Don’t like or make peanut butter cookies either. The one time I did used cheap peanut butter and they were awful. Peanut butter I will eat with bananas or on hot toast. People are always making stuff with peanut butter. They need to get a different cookbook. Just saying

    My absolute FAVORITE cookie! I like the Skippy recipe and then bake them until the are a ittle brown around the edges so they are light and crisp. With a cold glass of milk…? Yummy!
