My Nana’s peanut butter cookies

Sunday was a short day at work this week. Much welcome I must say, after a busy week in the hotel business.
My stepdaughter has been wanting me to teach her some cooking, so I thought this would be a good day to give a baking lesson. Deciding what to bake was easy, the first thing I learned to bake when I was a child. My Nana taught me how to make these cookies, among other things that I will share with her and you, my readers, in the future. I may be biased here but these Peanut butter cookies are the absolute best I have ever eaten, and I have eaten many a cookie in my life.
1 Stick butter(unsalted)
1cup sugar plus 1/4 cup for rolling
1 Cup peanut butter( creamy)
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 Cups A.P flour
   Cream sugar and butter together.
    Add egg and mix well
   Add peanut butter and vanilla and stir to combine.
    Sift flour salt and baking soda. Add to liquid mix and combine well.
    Roll dough into 1″ balls, then roll in sugar and place on greased baking sheet. Press down a bit with a fork.
   Bake at 375 degrees for about 12 Mins. Cool on a rack and enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
   Growing up with my paternal Grandmother in the same house was indeed a great benefit to me and my parents who both worked full time jobs.
She was born in 1901 and had amazing stories to tell and lessons to teach. Her Grandchildren were her life. Truly the salt of the earth. Not a day goes by that I don’t remember at least one moment with her. And on many of life’s decisions I find myself wondering what Nana would think about this.

Cook from the heart , taste the love
