Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

For obvious reasons, this is my go-to pick me up cookie recipe. I love love LOVE using old recipes that have been passed down generations, it makes the baking a more intimate and meditative experience in my opinion because you (after awhile) know the recipe like the back of your hand, and you feel connected to something or someone who might not be around anymore.

pb-1pb-4pb-6pb-8pb-7This recipe, straight from Great-Grandma Margaret’s scribbled down note, is as follows:

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar *(caster or granulated)

1 egg

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 tbsp cold water

1/2 tsp vanilla

Method: Put flour, soda, salt into large bowl & stir. Add the remaining ingredients & stir well. Roll into small balls, place on greased cookie sheets and press with fork. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.pb-5

This recipe makes perfect, crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside peanut butter cookies. Since my mom found out she has celiac disease we’ve adapted it to be gluten free. For a gluten free option just change the flour to a gluten free blend, and add 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (this stops it from being to crumbly!) to the flour blend and mix it in with the salt and baking soda.

These cookies are my favourite thing to bake on a sad, slow, or lonely day because they’re super easy, don’t take too much energy or time to make, and the smell and taste remind me of being a kid so it makes me feel all sweet and cozy and warm inside. Let me know how you like them if you try them out! x
