Peanut Butter Cookies

This is a traditional peanut butter cookie recipe. Since its for holidays I have not reconstructed the recipe, it is full of calories and packed with scrumptious flavors. No need to feel guilty, after all it's holidays.... Enjoy.....

Happy Holidays to all....... Enjoy!!!!!

Peanut butter cookies is my favorite type of cookies. But each time I bake them, I used to be worried very much about the calorie in them. So i have tried many low calorie version, they come out pretty good. But traditional peanut butter cookies is something special for holidays. Will try to post the low calorie version of them soon.

I made this cookies for my fried kind at my place. All of them enjoy it so much and I was running out of cookies.... Another great thing about this cookies is that, they can freeze very well for a month. They can be turned into peanut butter and jelly cookie sandwiches in a flash....

So this Peanut butter cookies is going for 2 events, Sharmi of Neivedyam is hosting this sweet event Holiday Cookie Baking. Jz of Tasty Treats is hosting another cute event Santa's Holiday Challenge. All the best U guys for hosting such interesting events....

Refrigerator the dough for about an hour.

Form small balls out of the dough, place it on the prepared baking sheet. Leave enough space in between as the cookies will expand while baking.

Now take a fork, dip it in white granulated sugar, make a crisscross pattern.

  28. do u refer jaggery as brown sugar?
    or otherwise brown sugar is different from it?

  29. Hi Srilekha, Sorry for the late reply.....
    Well, brown sugar is not jaggery. Brown sugar is a mixture of white sugar and molasses.
