Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies

Of all the bread spreads in the market, my favorite is peanut butter! Not only is it healthy, but since I love peanuts, it has a very wonderful "nutty" smell to it that I particularly like.

So of course when it comes to peanut butter cookies, I'm an absolute fan. I especially love using home-made peanut butter that my sister makes. Here's my tried and true recipe.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies

- 1 cup Sugar
- 3/4 cup Butter or Margarine
- 3/4 cup Peanut Butter
- 1 Egg
- 2 cups Self Rising Flour
- 1/8 teaspoon Salt


1.) Preheat  oven to 350 °F/ 180 °C. Lightly grease and flour a cookie sheet and set aside.
2.) In a medium bowl, sift flour and salt together; set aside.
3.) In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter and peanut butter. Cream until light and fluffy, for about 3 minutes.

4.) Add the egg and beat thoroughly, then add the flour mixture and mix.
5.) Dough should be stiff enough to shape with your hands. Make 1-inch balls and place on the cookie sheet.

Gently press your palm on the balls to flatten them slightly and then make an indentation with the tines of a fork to make a nice pattern.

6.) Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove cookies from oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool.
