My favorite cookie in the whole wide world is the Peanut Butter cookie!
Some form of peanut butter has been around for centuries, but the Peanut Butter Cookie recipe is a newer concept.
The History of It All
In the 14th century the ancient Aztecs roasted peanuts and made a mash which was probably a pretty crunchy-style peanut butter.
Peanut butter cookies have been a classic since the 1900s. President Woodrow Wilson’s wife included them in her famous list of cookie recipes – only she called them Peanut Cookies.
In 1916, George Washington Carver had 3 peanut butter cookie recipes in his research bulletin, “How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption.”
In 1932 the iconic peanut butter cookie recipe calling for the criss cross fork marks was printed in the Schenectady Gazette just in time for July 4th celebrations.
And then mothers and grandmothers across North America were making their peanut butter cookies that way for decades.
Peanut butter cookies made with butter are the best ever. But there is a secret to getting them to turn out nice – and we’re nice enough to share our key to success with you!
Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
Make cookies as in recipe above, but don’t criss cross the top. Flatten gently with a floured fork and then place a peanut in the center of each one. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Let cool slightly on cookie pan and then remove to rack to cool completely.
