Peanut Butter

What's your favorite Peanut Butter recipe? Here's one of mine, to get things started.
Of course we make these ahead, for camping trips.
:sporty

Peanut Butter & Oat Bran Cookies

1/2 c. melted margarine (of course, butter tastes better)
1/2 c. granulated (white) sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. white flour (unbleached, all purpose)
1 + 1/2 c. Oat Bran (Oat Bran Cereal)
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix melted margarine (or butter) with sugars. Add egg; mix well. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla; beat until smooth. Add remaining dry ingredients (I generally sift together first, but many cooks don't bother); mix well. Drop by teaspoonsful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Criss-cross on each cookied with the tines of a fork. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes about 3 dozen.

I love PB and OB cookies but have never tried both together.

Why is it that peanut butter cookies don't taste the same without the fork marks on top? :E :E

Because without those fork marks on top, you've accidentally picked up the sugar cookie that's sitting on the plate right next to the p.b. cookies...? :o

Peanut butter

I don't think this really qualifies as a recipe, but it's great to have on hand when you absolutely, positively, HAVE to have a tasty, pick-me-up snack...

Put a couple of heaping tablespoons of crunchy lo-fat PB into a bowl. Pour on honey until it reaches the "right" consistency (see how precise a recipe-er I are!), and mix them together. Add shredded coconut in the "correct" amount and mix all together. (You can toast the coconut for an an even more sinful mixture.)

Put it on crackers when the urge hits.

I grew up on p.b.

Robert, Your recipe reminds me of the crazy way we used to eat p.b. when I was a kid. (Hey, it was my dad's idea!) We mixed it with white Karo syrup. Also ate that on crackers. Probably way bad for you, and I don't recommend it to Charles (not that Pam would allow it anyway) but, hey, we were kids! (Of course, my dad ate it along with us...)

:sunny

Peanut Butter and Karo

Yep, That is some good, good stuff. YUM! I haven't eaten that in a long time.

Somewhere deep in my recipe file of things I use to make before I shouldn't, I have a recipe for a PB Cake with Chocolate Frosting. Talk about GOOD! But, Charles wouldn't like it. And Pam certainly wouldn't let him have that!

Hey, Suz. That's no reason to refrain from posting it. (I'll bet he doesn't even really like okra either.)

Sounds kind of like a Reese's p.b. cup cake.

Hey, want my peanut butter pie recipe?

But thank you so much for the cooky recipe. I also LOVE Peanut Butter cookies and Oatmeal Cookies. always causes a decision problem. which one do I eat. so I eat both. this way I can just have one. :) or three or more :cblob

>>a peanut butter recipe. so where is it??

Take a handful of peanuts and put them in a food processor. Process until consistency resembles that of peanut butter.

Yum Yum Peanutty Butter

My kids absolutely won't leave the campfire late at night unless I drag out the pie iron and make peanut-butter-in-a-round-things for everyone. Put a piece of white bread spread with peanut butter on each side of the pie iron, squash them together and toast over coals just long enough to brown the bread and make the peanut butter hot and soupy! We sometimes make them over the range at home just to remember camping out. Matter of fact, I think I'll make some tomorrow night:banana ! Wahoo!

this is a good thread.
first a cookie recipe, then sandwiches, then memory lane with the karo. (that honey and shredded coconut I have not had - yet) now something to do with that toaster thing one of the kids gave me for christmas. I was polite, but I thought what in the world do I need this for? but we can have peanut butter in the round uh square. it was a square one, but I bet it will work. bring on the sun.

Peanut Butter Cake

I haven't made this in a long time, and I cannot imagine who's diet it could possibly be on, but it was really good as I recall.

Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Frosting

2 cups cake flour plus 2 Tablespoons
3/4 tsp soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/3 creamy peanut butter
1 1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup orange juice
2/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease and line 2 9 layer pans.

Mix flour, soda, salt and baking powder. Cream butter and peanut butter until smooth then add sugar gradually and cream well. Beat in eggs one at a time until satiny and fluffy. Remove beater and use wooden spoon. Add flour and buttermilk and mix with the orange juice in 3 or 4 portions, beginning and ending with flour and beating smooth after each addition. Pour into pans and bake 25 27 minutes or until cake barely tests done. Let cool in pans about 5 10 minutes before moving to cooling racks.

NOTE: It has been a very long time since I made this cake, but Im sure I used regular flour instead of cake flour and instead of buttermilk, I probably used sour milk (add a little white vinegar in a cup before measuring the milk.

Frost with Chocolate Frosting between layers and on tops and sides. Your favorite will do, but heres just a suggestion.

1/4 cup butter
3 Tbsp cream or milk (approx)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp salt


Melt butter over low heat; add 2 Tbsp of cream; add vanilla. Mix sugar, salt and cocoa. Add to butter mixture and stir. If too thick, add more cream or milk.

NOTE: Heating the ingredients makes it dark and glossy.
