The third cookie I made was a peanut butter cookie. I don't remember where I got the recipe. The original title was Rich Peanut Butter Cookies, but I added the chopped peanuts and call them Triple Threat Peanut Butter Cookies because they have peanuts in them three ways. The texture of these cookies is less dense than regular peanut butter cookies.
Triple Threat Peanut Butter Cookies
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 c. flour
3/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 c. peanut butter chips
1/2 c. chopped peanuts
In large bowl, beat brown sugar, peanut butter, butter and egg with electric mixer on medium heat until creamy. On low speed, beat in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in peanuts and peanut butter chips. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Dip tops of balls into granulated sugar. Place balls onto ungreased cookie sheet about 3-inches apart (do not flatten). Bake at 375 degrees 9-10 minutes or until light brown. Cool on sheet 5 minutes. Remove to cooling rack. Makes about 6 doz.
Enjoy. Back tomorrow with the fourth recipe.
