If you like peanut butter cookies you'll LOVE these. The original recipe says it'll make 1 1/2 to 2 dozen but I double it all up and still don't get that many.
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1⁄2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1⁄3 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 tablespoons orange juice
- peanut butter
- In a mixer bowl cream butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together thoroughly.
- Stir together the flour, baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add to creamed mixture; beat well. Beat in orange juice.
- Shape dough into a roll 2 inches in diameter and 7 inches long. Wrap in clear plastic wrap. Chill at least 1 hour. Reshape into a round log if necessary.
- Slice cookies 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Place half the slices 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Spread center of each cookie with about 1 teaspoon peanut butter. Cover with remaining slices. Seal edge with fork.
- Bake in 350 degree oven for 12 to 15 minute Cool slightly; remove form cookie sheet and cool on rack. About 1 dozen cookies.
Made 3 batches of these to add to the table of baked goods (mostly cookies) that kids in our mobile home park held! Another big hit, especially with the PB lovers like myself!
