This recipe came from my mother, Jane Hand, when I asked her for her best recipes so that I could save them for my daughters. Not being a PB cookie lover, I set this aside until needing a sweet for work. My co-workers raved about it. I had lost the recipe until today so now that I have found it, I figured I had better post it for posterity. Enjoy! A recent reviewer thought the temp was too high so I have adjusted. New temp and time is listed.
This is one of my favorite cookies. I fiquered out a couple of new things then the other recipes. It is when you get your stick of butter out melt it and let it cool till you mix it together with other ingredients. When you do this they set up faster and easer.I also find that if you sift your cocoa you won't have chunks of cocoa in it. or if you don't have that time just get a wisk out and wisk it till smooth
This is by far the prettiest, easiest (no rolling) and best tasting sugar cookie I have ever made. They look like they came right out of the bakery. Try them-- then stand back and wait for the oohs and ahs!!!!
