Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
Our Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe is amazing! The hash mark may be one of the most prevalent symbols in modern life, but it’s been the “mark” of peanut butter cookies for more than eighty years, and for good reason. Pressing a hash mark into each cookie ensures this dense dough will flatten out and bake evenly. While using this kitchen-tested recipe ensures your peanut butter cookies will turn out perfectly. It’s been in Betty’s back pocket for quite some time, and you can bet this recipe isn’t going anywhere soon. Home cooks from all over have claimed this to be the best peanut butter cookie they’ve ever made—and we certainly agree! Soft and chewy with the perfect salty-sweet balance, these tender cookies will disappear at every potluck, party or cookie exchange. For an added bit of sparkle, roll your cookies in coarse sparkling sugar just before baking.
Ingredients for Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter and egg in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped into sugar.
Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
Have a household full of kids? Mix up and chill the dough for up to to 24 hours ahead, cover it and refrigerate so you are ready to bake effortlessly bake on demoand. If too firm to scoop, let it stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
The fork crisscross is the classic way to make the distinctive look of peanut butter cookies, but you can use the bottom of a decorative juice glass like an old-fashioned cookie press.
You can use either chunky or creamy peanut butter, but look for one that doesn’t need to be stirred before measuring.
For a special treat, sandwich two of these all-time favorites together with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. Roll the edge in chopped candy bar or nuts.
For extra sparkle, roll cookie balls in coarse sparkling sugar before baking.
Ove Glove Oven Mitt Customer Reviews
Really protect your hands. Follow directions and don’t let them get wet. Fingers of glove are a little narrow, may cause a problem for someone with larger hands. But really protect hands from heat better than any other type of pot holder I’ve tried. – Kimberly, July 2, 2020
I had a pair of red gloves that lost their insulation strength. It took burning a couple fingers when taking a pan out to convince me to get a new pair. This is my first Ove pair, and they are proving to be quite sturdy and protective. –
Great for cast iron! We love cooking in cast iron, but of course the pan gets hot, so you need to make sure your hand is protected while cooking. Plus at those really high temps you want to make sure your glove can handle it. So these are perfect for all cooking occasions! –
I love these gloves. For me gloves are better I can handle baking dishes better, mittens are too bumblesome for me and I get burned. I feel secure handling hot dishes cause I know I will not be burned. –
Best oven gloves! They protect while giving more flexibility than a traditional mitt. –
They are very helpful when baking. I do not get burned. My last pair are still very serviceable. However, they have been used so long it’s just time to retire them. On the other hand. These are cheaply made. Many loose strings inside the fingers and uni handed. My old ones had a right and left hand. Much more comfortable. These are also much lighter weight. –
I am happy with this pot holder. Surprised by the quality as most seen on TV stuff is junk. I am prone to burns and think these gloves will offer “superior protection”! They are a tad big on me but that is not a hindrance. But, they are just right on my adult son. –
These gloves are great. They have replaced all my pot holders. I’ve been using them for almost a year and so far I haven’t felt any heat through them. They are also wonderful for getting hot items out of the microwave. I highly recommend that everyone have a pair in their kitchen. –
I have a mitt that I have had about 20 years and my son ask what brand it was so I thought that they would make a good Easter gift to go with a griddle. So they are as described. Wonderful! Thick, flexible and protect from heat. –
My ove glove has been down many paths. Between Grill and Stove and old age it has seen better days. I have looked everywhere to find the ove gloves every time I was in all the stores and no one had it. Low and behold I found it online not jut one but two of them. They are the best gloves I have found. –
I have used cooking gloves for years and love them so I got them for my daughter for a Christmas gift this year. They are just what they say, you can put them on and reach in the oven and pull out the item without any problem. The fact that the fingers are separate makes the grip easier and safer so less chance of dropping the food. –
These are the original OVE gloves, they are the best pot holders available. I use them to check baked potatoes on the grill to make sure they are done. Then just remove the baked potatoes and corn right off the grill. These will protect your hands removing just about anything from an oven or grill. Well worth the price. –
WARNING: This product extends the time to handle hot objects. It is NOT permanent protection against fire or heat. Do not use this glove with steam or while glove is wet. Can result in injury if not used accordingly to instructions.
