Does anyone know of a chewy pb cookie recipe? I have one that does make a soft cookie, but its still a little crumbly. I'm looking for something more 'chewy'
My mother always added a bit of honey (like 2 Tablespoons) to her recipe along with the sugars, I am not sure if they is why her cookies were soft and chewy or not, but it wouldn't hurt to try it.
Peanut Butter Cookies
2 1/2c All Purpose Flour
1t Baking powder
1c Brown Sugar (firmly packed)
1c Peanut Butter
2 sticks of real butter (softened)
Mix dry ingredients and set aside. Cream remaining ingredients. Slowly mix all ingredients together. Drop on UNGREASED cookie sheets (I use my small cookie metal cookie scoop). Press lightly criss-crossing over top with a damp fork. Bake at 375 for 5-6 minutes. Makes approx. 5 dozen.
*Note: I remove my pans from the oven before you can see brown around the edges. This results in a VERY soft cookie! Let me know if you try them and how they turn out for you.
I get many requests to make the recipe I use which is on Crisco.com, it is called Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies. The crisco (use butter flavored)makes them very soft and chewy. I always get many compliments! Good luck with whatever you decide to try!
