Court of Honor Cookies

We are a scouting family. We do Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts. This week has been a week of Cub Scout Day Camp. Last week our oldest and his dad were off at Boy Scout Camp. Tonight is the traditional Court of Honor for the awarding of merit badges after summer camp. They bring dessert and get their badges and we, the parents, take LOTS of pictures! LOL Here are the cookies that Dan and JoNathan requested I make for tonight. Traditional Peanut Butter Cookies... simple but YUMMO!!!!!

Want the recipe???

Here ya go...

Peanut Butter Cookies

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup unslated butter (1 1/2 sticks) at room temperature
1 1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup smooth or crunchy peanut butter
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
2. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the peanut butter. Beat in the egg, then add the vanilla and beat again. On low speed, gradually add the flour and beat just until blended into the moist ingredients..
3. I use a small cookie scoop to scoop dough onto a baking sheet and then I use a fork dipped in flour to press the cookie down one way and then cross the other way to form the pattern in the cookie.
4. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Pop the cookie sheet with pressed cookies in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden. Cool for about 2 minutes and then transfer to cooling rack to continue the cooling process. Once they are dry I store them in a rectangular tupperware if they don't all get eaten up first! LOL
