It Is Bake for Family Fun Month - Let's Bake Some Cookies!

Yes, February is, "Bake for Family Fun Month" . . . and since it is typically a chilly month, it tends to be a wonderful time to "fire up" the oven and bake some, "family fun"! Around this grandma's house, there are few things more "fun" than baking a batch of homemade cookies! So, today I'm happy to share with you one of my grandsons' favorite cookies . . . 

 Supplies –
1.     1 stick of butter (must be butter because your cookies will taste much better with butter!)
2.    ½ cup of peanut butter
3.    ¾ cup brown sugar
4.    ¾ cup granulated sugar
5.    ½ teaspoon salt
6.    ½ teaspoon vanilla
7.    2 eggs
8.    1 teaspoon baking soda
9.    2 ¼ cups flour
10. 1 ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
11.  Sprinkles – as many as you like!
Directions –
1.     Beat butter, peanut butter, and sugars together.
2.    Add eggs and vanilla and mix for a couple minutes until well combined.
3.    Add flour, salt, soda and mix.
4.    Add chocolate chips and sprinkles and mix.
5.    Drop onto baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for seven to eight minutes – until golden around edges, but still soft.
6.    Place on rack to cool.
7.    Enjoy!
These cookies are fun to make . . . my grandsons love to “sample” the dough – and fun to eat for sure!

I always send cookies home with my grandsons to enjoy with their parents . . . they all approve of this! Yes, when it comes to family fun and baking, cookies fit the bill for sure!

What are your favorite family cookies?
