Christmas Baking: Peanut Butter Cookies

Today I’m sharing one last recipe in my Christmas baking series. This recipe is for peanut butter cookies dressed up with a simple chocolate rosebud. This is an easy yet delicious cookie. Happy baking!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups flour

Mix peanut butter and butter. Add sugars, egg and vanilla. Mix. Gradually add remaining ingredients to mixture. Roll dough into one-inch balls. Place about two-inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Press flat with fork in a criss-cross pattern to 1/4-inch thickness. Bake at 375 F about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and press one chocolate rosebud into the centre of each cookie. Yield: about 36 cookies. Note: I doubled the recipe in the photos below.

Mix the margarine and peanut butter.

Mix in the sugars and eggs.

Add the flour.

Roll into approximately one-inch sized balls.

Press flat with a fork in a criss-cross pattern.
