This is one of our new favorite recipes. The Gramma’s Cutters family has always had a love for Peanut Butter and now we created a way to put our two loves together in Aunt Chick’s Peanut Butter Cutouts! Decorate with a little chocolate frosting and you have cookies that your family and friends will ask for again and again.
CREAM IN A MIXING BOWL COMBINE:
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/8 tsp peanut butter oil
(LorAnne’s is recommend)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
IN A SEPARATE BOWL COMBINE:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
In a large mixing bowl cream peanut butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and baking soda; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4″ thickness. Cut with 2 in. to 4 in. cookie cutters dipped in flour. Place 2″ apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until the edges are browned. Cool for 1 minute before moving to the wire cooling rack.
