Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies*

These cookies DID turn out to be chewier than 
those made from my other favorite 
Peanut Butter Cookie recipe...

Personally, for next time, I think I will cut 
back on the "sweetness" ingredients.


  • l egg
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used a "natural" chunky variety.)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup honey roasted or dry roasted peanuts, chopped (not needed IF you use chunky peanut butter as I did).


  1. Heat oven to 350-degrees.
  2. BEAT egg in large mixing bowl with mixer until foamy.
  3. ADD the peanut butter, sugar and honey.  Mix well.
  4. ADD the flour and stir just until combined/smooth.
  5. Using my 1.5 tablespoon-sized cookie scoop, I put 15 "little balls of dough" on my 15x10" parchment-lined cookie sheet.  
  6. Flatten each dough ball, in crisscross pattern, with fork (slightly wet the fork tines if they get sticky).
  7. BAKE 11 to 12 minutes (in my oven, it was 11.5 minutes).  Cool on baking sheet for at least 1 minute.  Remove to wire racks, cool completely.  

This 5-quart enameled cast iron "kettle" is my
most favorite "cookie jar" around here... 
its lid is heavy enough to keep cookies in 
good condition for quite a while.
