Cooking from old recipes is really neat because, for the most part, you get to share an experience from history. Sadly, I don’t get that experience with this recipe; a peanut sensitivity prevents me. So if you try these cookies please leave a comment to tell me how they turned out.
Peanut Butter Cookies from Needlework News
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten lightly
1/3 cup milk
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream the butter; add the peanut butter and cream again; gradually beat in the sugar; add the egg, milk, flour sifted with baking powder and salt; mix to a dough. Knead slightly, roll into thin sheet and cut into rounds or as desired; place on buttered pan, sprinkle with granulated sugar, and bake in quick oven (400 F).
My best guess for the date of this recipe is around 1952, but it doesn’t say exactly. Happy baking!
