Here you’ll find all manner of delicious recipes. Chocolate, yes, but other sweet and savory favorites as well.

P.B.C.’s, as he affectionately initializes them, are a favorite of my husband.  It’s the extra peanut butter that makes them so good.  They are a very dense, chewy cookie. These are my own devising, and I’m very proud of how delicious they are.

1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

2 cups good peanut butter, crunchy

1 egg, beaten

Grated rind of one small orange

¼ cup orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla paste

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

!/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat the oven to 350.  Lightly butter a cookie sheet.

Cream together the butter and brown sugar, then cream in the peanut butter.  Add the beaten egg.   Add the flavorings.  Sift in the dry ingredients.  Work with a big spoon or your hands until all the flour is incorporated.

Roll the dough into balls and place on the prepared cookie sheet.  Press the cookies with a flour-dipped fork, making crosshatched patterns.  Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes.  Cool a couple of minutes, and then remove from pan.  Makes about 2 – 4 dozen, depending on how big you make the cookies.
