Peanut Butter Crackle-Top Cookies--By Linda Kozar

Today I'm going to share one of my favorite cookie recipes with you! Peanut Butter Crackle-Top Cookies! (The picture above is from the Simply Recipe site because the batches I made didn't last long enough for a photo op).

My mother used to made double batches of these cookie gems for us as kids. We were always begging her to make them. Good thing she was a cookie-making kind of mom.

Peanut Butter Crackle Top Cookies

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup peanut butter

Cream together butter and sugars. Blend in egg and vanilla. Sift flour, soda and salt together. Add to mixture. Mix thoroughly. Roll into balls. Dip in sugar and arrange on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees.

Voila! Enjoy!

  2. Dear Nancy, this is the way I like to eat my peanut butter. AND sometimes I cut back on some of the peanut butter and substitute Nutella. Those are my fav fav cookies of all! Chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven!
