    Hi everyone! I've been reading along here and here when I can, just haven't really been posting. Last week I did manage to make a loaf of whole wheat sourdough, made some whole wheat bread with the daycare and made pizza. Obviously not on the same day [​IMG]. I was wondering if anyone has a good peanut butter cookie recipe? I saw the pb cutout cookie recipe, but I've been looking for a good pb cookie recipie. I've tried a few on Pinterest, but they haven't been amazing. I hope your all doing well!

    @Alice28 I would try ronott 1 's recipe from her Aunt Abby. The PB cut outs turned out good, but kinda hard texture. Next time I plan to try hers which look like a softer cookie. Using my new cutters was my goal, but I think her recipe looks better.

    Made a Creamy Lemon Pie today, not new, but DH wanted it. Didn't realize the recipe is now on the Real Lemon Bottles. It is so easy, and always good [​IMG]

    I like to make peanut butter cookies but instead of putting the x on them with a fork, I just roll, bake and then right out of the oven, put an unwrapped peanut butter cup (the mini size ones) on top of the cookie. You get the soft pb cookie and then the chocolatey/pb taste from the cup. They're sort of like the peanut butter blossoms but we like the pb cups instead of the plain Hersey Kiss on the Blossoms.

    Thank you! I'm going to make both PB cookie recipes and see if I have a favorite! Usually at Christmas time I make cookie plates as gifts, but I've been lazy on how many cookies I'm making. I need a peanut butter cookie to add to the mix!
