Let's Share Cookie Recipes

I have to start my Christmas cookie baking. I usually make five to seven different batches of cookies every year. I put them in the freezer, buy some decorative plates and I can whip up a wonderful plate of cookies when invited over to friends house during the blessed holiday season. I try one or two new recipes every year, but stick to a few basics also. My husband and boys would strongly protest if I didn’t make my Peanut Butter Cookies, they are the house favorite. And I have to make a double batch, one for the freezer and one for them. A double batch requires muscle with an Eclectrics® Mixer and would be much easier to mix with a Hamilton Beach® Stand Mixer. Anything that helps me spend less time in the kitchen makes me happy. And since I’m seeking a stress free holiday season a Hamilton Beach® Mixer can help me in that quest. I can share my Peanut Butter Cookie recipe with you!

Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
1 - ¾ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup butter of margarine
¾ granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup peanut butter
Stir together flour, soda and salt. Set aside.
Cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Add egg and vanilla and beat well.
Stir in dry ingredients.
Drop by level tablespoons onto greased baking sheets.
Use fork to make crisscross pattern on top of each cookie.
Bake in 350 degree oven about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Cool on baking sheet.

Now if anyone wants to share a cookie recipe with me I will be more than happy to entertain the idea of adding it to my list!
