Let's Bake Some Cookies!

Any time is 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 stick of butter (must be butter because your cookies will taste much better with butter!)
  •    ½ cup of peanut butter
  •    ¾ cup brown sugar
  •    ¾ cup granulated sugar
  •    ½ teaspoon salt
  •    ½ teaspoon vanilla
  •    2 eggs
  •    1 teaspoon baking soda
  •    2 ¼ cups flour
  •    1 ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  •    Sprinkles – as many as you like!  
  • Directions –
  •    Beat butter, peanut butter, and sugars together.
  •    Add eggs and vanilla and mix for a couple minutes until well combined.
  •    Add flour, salt, soda and mix.
  •    Add chocolate chips and sprinkles and mix.
  •    Drop onto baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for seven to eight minutes – until golden around edges, but still soft.
  •    Place on rack to cool.
  •    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?
