Peanut Butter Cookies

It is almost Chinese New Year now and it is time to bake some cookies to greet family members who are returning home. Peanut cookies are one of my favourite. I love the aromatic taste of the slightly burned peanut taste. Here's how you bake them.


  • 1 1/2 cups butter or 1 1/2 cups margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter or 1 1/2 cups crunchy peanut butter, your choice
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 3/4 cups flour
  • 12 ounces peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup nuts (optional)

Cooking Method:

  1. Cream peanut butter and margarine, add sugars and mix well.
  2. Add eggs and mix until the mixture is creamy and then add the remaining ingredients.
  3. Chill for one hour.
  4. Drop by teaspoonful onto cookie sheets and do not flatten them.
  5. Bake the cookies at 325°F for 15 minutes.
  6. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes then transfer onto paper- the paper soaks up extra grease so the cookies don't become crumbly.
  7. Store them in an air-tight container and keep it in a dry and cool area.
