Nanny Ruth’s Peanut Butter Cookies

You remember my Nanny Ruth, right? She’s fairly unforgettable.

So are her peanut butter cookies.

We’re talking flaky, chewy, and just the faintest bit peanut butter-y.

In other words: show-stopping…like the woman who invented them.

What you do:

1. In a large bowl, blend together first five ingredients.

2. In a second bowl, sift together remaining ingredients.

3. Slowly add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture, stirring as you go.

4. Drop batter by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet (lined with tin foil, if desired – but if you use tin foil, be certain to grease it with cooking spray).

5. Flatten each spoonful of batter with a fork dipped in cold water (as pictured above). You can also do some crosshatching if you like; it’s all pretty stuff.

6. Bake at 325F for 20 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned at the edges.
