Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

personal chef fort lauderdale

This is probably one of the easiest and most versatile cookie recipes. Several weeks ago, we were wanting a quick dessert so we cut the ingredients in half and made a small batch. There were a few Hershey Kisses laying around from a previous job so we opted to put on top of each cookie when they just taken out of the oven. Delicious.
The following is the full peanut butter cookie recipe. Enjoy.
This is what you need:
1/4 cup unsalted sweet cream butter
1/2 cup vegetable shortening (you are use all butter if you prefer)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter (you can use all same type of peanut butter)
1 cup regular granulated sugar
1 cup packed dark brown sugar (light brown sugar can be used if it is the only type you have on hand)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt (this is optional - we found it is not necessary with all the salt in the peanut butter)
This is what you will do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix the butter, shortening and peanut butter with a wooden spoon. Add both types of sugar - stir until mixed. Add the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla until mixed.
In a medium bowl combine flour, soda and salt. Using a whisk seems to work the best for this. Stir flour mixture into the sugar mixture. Combine well. You may want to use your hands.
Form dough into balls or ropes or whatever tickles your fancy. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. (For ease of cleanup, we often use the non-stick parchment paper).
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Letting them cool on the cookie sheet seems to work well. So we say don't bother with a cooling rack.

16 Best Benefits Of Corn (Bhutta) For Skin, Hair And Health

Corn, also known as maize or our good old ( Bhutta/Makkai/Challi ) in Hindi, ‘ Mokka Jonnalu ‘ in Telugu, ‘ Makkacholam ‘ in Tamil, ‘ Cholam ‘ in Malayalam, ‘ Musukina Jol a’ in Kannada, ‘ Makkai ‘ in Gujarati, ‘ Makai ‘ in Marathi and Punjabi and ‘ Butta ‘ in Bengali. Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also. The white and yellow hybrids are known as butter and sugar corn which contain both kinds of kernels. This cereal is known for its pleasant taste and its versatility. Baby corn is available in cans or jars in the supermarkets and is used in Asian cooking. This grain is generally available in summer and can be
