Easy Pease Peanut Butter Cookies


I am one of those moms that just can NOT bring herself to buy those tubes of cookie dough at the store when I have everything I need to make dough from scratch already in my home. These peanut butter cookies are quick to whip up and you once you throw them in the oven you can do other things while they bake, like fold laundry, not!!! Honestly, it is not that hard to make them and the look on your family’s face when you do… well it is like you are a goddess!


1 1/4 Cup Flour (freshly milled from my WonderMill)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 Cup butter

1/2 Cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 Cup brown sugar

1/2 Cup peanut butter

If you have never read one of my recipes before, this is where I tell you to throw everything in the bowl and put your hands in there and mush it all up! I just think you get a much better mix when you use your hands…. I know, I am weird.

Once the dough is all combined, roll it into little balls in the palm of your hands. Make them big or small depending what size cookies you want. Place cookie balls on a GREASED cookie sheet. Now here is where I add the extra bit of love….. I take a fork (greased) and I make a pattern on the top of the cookies. Why? Cause it gives them character. I press the fork down once, then turn the fork and press it again to make the thatched marks you see in the photo.


Now pop those bad boys in the oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes and you just became a goddess!

About Mindie @ The (mis)Adventures of a "Born Again" Farm Girl

On a 1/4 acre in a VERY small town lives a slightly deranged woman who never thought she would be a Farm Girl again, then her son asked for a chicken! So began The (mis)Adventures of a “Born Again“ Farm Girl.

Hi, my name is Mindie and I quickly realized my rebirth went much deeper then a few hens ….. It awoke a desire in me to do more, ourselves, for our family…. To learn the “old ways” of doing things. We raise chickens, ducks and rabbits, garden and can, tap our maple tree for syrup, cure our own hams, make lard and our own bacon! This spring we will be adding bee hives as well! It is never a dull moment here in Michigan with my hubby and two country kids.

And of course I love to cook and bake. There is just something about home cooking that not only brings comfort to the heart but healthier food to the plate. The ability to mill our own grains had been on our list of homesteading goals and I am so excited to be a part of The Grain Mill Wagon Challenge.
