X’s Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe, also from the Norwegian ladies cookbook, makes a chewy cookie.

2 sticks butter, softened

2 C peanut butter (I use creamy, use what you like)

2 C white sugar

3/4 C brown sugar

2 eggs

2 T milk

2 C flour

2 tsp baking soda

Blend peanut butter and butter, add sugars. Add eggs, milk, and soda. Blend in flour.

Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet. With a fork dipped in flour, criss cross the cookies to flatten them.

Bake at 350° for eleven minutes.

Seal tightly when cooled.

After they come out of the oven, you may shove a Hershey Kiss into the center of the cookie.

Back in the seventies, there was a cookie called Ideal Peanut Butter Logs. These chocolatey coated crispy peanut butter cookies were delish. My brother would have mom buy those, and I can remember him stacking up a half dozen with a tall glass of milk, and he would down them before the next commercial. The company stopped making them, and my brother now has a hole in his heart where the cookies used to be.

I am going to try this recipe as the cookie base, and roll them and bake fingers, then dip them in melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and see how close I can come to the original.
