Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

I have one sweet memory of making peanut butter cookies with my Jamie. He was in preschool and it was Teacher’s Appreciation Day coming up. All week I asked him what he wanted to do for his teacher and all week he said the dreaded words, I don’t know. That Thursday morning when asked again, he said he wanted to make cookies for his teacher. I was excited because who doesn’t like to bake cookies, right? That night after work, I pulled out my cookbooks to find a recipe. There were several choices and I chose a flourless recipe because it made a smaller amount and to my surprise they were really good. After school the next day, I was asked by his teacher about the cookies and the recipe I had attached to the container, she told me peanut butter was her favorite.

While I haven’t made that recipe in years, peanut butter cookies are Jamie’s favorite to make. This Soft Peanut Butter Cookies recipe will always be known in my recipe book as Jamie’s Peanut Butter Cookies.

Before you pass out over a whole tablespoon of vanilla... WE LOVE VANILLA, especially my homemade vanilla. If you are not a vanilla fan, you can definitely cut back on it.

When baking in my oven, I know I have to adjust the time for certain things. Luckily with these cookies, 9 minutes is the perfect time, every time for me.
