How to Bake Ingrid’s Peanut Butter Cookies: National Cookie Month

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 Peanut Butter Cookies - cookingwithkimberly.comCookies always give yo that little kick of sugar you desire.

Some cookies call for shortening, which tends to give a softer texture, and more spread of the dough on the cookie sheet.

I will often use half butter & half shortening to get the best of both worlds. Plus, butter tastes so darn good. I usually avoid using oil or margarine for cookies altogether.

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.
