My Aunt Ella was a big inspiration in my life. She could cook better than anyone I have ever known and she had a lot of patience. As a child learning to cook, I was pretty messy in the kitchen; that soon corrected itself when I started having to clean up my own messes.
This is her recipe for peanut butter cookies and it makes a lot of cookies. You can always take a plate of hot, fresh baked cookies to a friend.
If you want, you can add 1 Hersey’s Kiss to each cookie immediately when taking the cookies out of the oven or you can add chocolate chips to the recipe.
5 cups white sugar
5 cups brown sugar
10 sticks butter
5 cups peanut butter
Cream above ingredients together, set aside.
12 1/2 cups flour
4 teaspoons soda
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
Mix dry ingredients, set aside.
Add dry ingredients slowly to wet ingredients. Mix well. Roll cookie dough into balls, place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork so that you make the cris cross marks on top. Bake for 9 minutes. Cool, then remove from pan. These are very good!
