Cookie Binge

Some of you may already know this but I have a new to me oven after not having one for about a year. It is wonderful, keeps a honest temp! However, with this appliance I have been a bit crazy with the casserole creating and cookie making. I know big deal but over our vacation last week, I think I made about a dozen dozen cookies and consumed the better part of them along with 5 casseroles LOL. Oh well, I can always go to the gym tomorrow, right?? Well, tonight while making a ziti casserole (thank you $5 dinner from Northwest Coupon Lady) I also made PB Cookies. Linked is the original recipe from Allrecipes Michelle's Peanut Butter Dots but here is what I used.

1 stick margarine
1/2 C white sugar
1/4 C brown sugar
3/4 C crunchy peanut butter
2 T milk
1 t vanilla extract
8/9 C flour almost a cup
1/4 C cornstarch

mix together margarine, sugars, pb, milk and vanilla, add in dry ingredients in 2 - 3 sections,roll into balls then do the usual fork crisscross, bake in 350 preheated oven for 12-13 minutes. this portion makes about 30 smaller cookies. Well, we got 28 cuz of all the taste tests I had to perform. Also, I know weird about the cornstarch but I found that I like the consistency in my cookies while I was creating my shortbread delights. These cookies are crunchy on the outside yet creamy on the inside. give em a try they are very simple to make and even easier to eat.


  1. I have all of these ingredients on hand.. this is a DANGEROUS recipe!! I'll have to wait til my boys are almost home so I don't eat them all myself ;) Thanks Julie!!!
