Peanut Butter Cut Outs

I was pretty excited when I found this cookbook on clearance at Target: "The Great Cookie Book: 50 Recipes for All Occasions" (from the creators of the Original Bundt Pan - Nordic Ware)

I was even more excited when I came across a recipe for Peanut Butter Cut Out Cookies.


1.5 c flour
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c creamy peanut butter
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 large egg

Beat butter and peanut butter until smooth and creamy. Beat in sugars. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in rest.

Chill for about 3 hours.

Cut in sections on lightly floured surface. Decorate with colored sugars if desired. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
