My favourite Cookie...

Well one of them at least...

And I would be talking about my moms Crackle Top PB Cookie... see I told you I would post it... I just took my sweet time... lol

This is one that I remember my mom baking for us for all the bake sales at the school... or just for a sweet treat at home... always a favourite in our house, alongside the shortbread recipe...

Crackle Top Peanut Butter Cookies
[If you have a food allergy to pb, obviously dont make this...]

3/4c peanut butter
3/4c margarine
3/4c sugar
3/4c brown sugar
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1t vanilla
1 3/4c flour
1/2t baking soda
1/2t salt

granulated sugar

Cream together marg, and sugars, blend in the egg, vanilla as well as the peanut butter. Sift in the flour, salt and baking soda, mixing well to incorporate the batter into a stiff dough.

Wrap the dough in plastic and chill in the fridge for 20-30m.

Using a dessert spoon, form small balls of dough, and roll them in the granulated sugar you have set aside. Place this on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1/2 - 1 inch apart to keep from becoming one large cookie.

Bake at 375 deg for about 10-12 mins, you are looking for the edges to brown up, and the little dough balls to fall into a more cookie like shape, with a crackle top.

Pull them out of the oven and let them cool/set [they will fall apart into a molten hot pile of pb goo if you try to eat one before they are cool enough...]

Yields about 24-48 cookies [yeah large gap there, it really is based on how large you roll out the dough balls]
