National Cookie Month is here, and cookies certainly are a national treat & a favorite after-school snack – but Ingrid’s Peanut Butter Cookies are on another level!
How to Bake Ingrid’s Peanut Butter Cookies:
I’m not one for following recipes to the nth degree, and often adjust to what I want that day.
My favorite peanut butter cookie recipe follows. In this particular cookie recipe, I keep create the batter with only butter & no shortening.
However, in the video show below, I changed it up a bit with a mixture of butter, shortening & peanut oil. In fact, depending on what I have available in my pantry, I might change the recipe slightly here & there, on any given day.
