Jif Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

Let’s take it back. Waaaaay back.

What cookies were you baking with your mama as a kid? I was baking Jif’s peanut butter cookies. My job was pressing the fork into the dough to make the bumpy tops.

My daughter calls that “the hashtag.” As in, “can I make the hashtags on the cookies?”  Kids these days, man. Those are pound signs. Get it together.

Anyway, I was a Jif kid growing up and now my kids are too! It’s the brand that I always reach for at the store.

When Jif reached out to me and asked that I share their irresistible peanut butter cookie recipe with all of you, I said yes. Because, duh. It meant that I had an excuse to make more cookies and since my husband eats cookies for breakfast on the regular, we need lots of cookies. Also, my husband loves a good classic peanut butter cookie. These are so chewy and loaded with peanut butter. I used crunchy peanut butter this time around for the texture, but creamy is what we usually go for. Either way, you can’t go wrong!

I let my daughter help with the hashtag, because it’s a kid’s job.

We usually serve these straight up, with a glass of milk. Every now and then I get all fancy and melt some chocolate chips and drizzle that right over the tops. My husband prefers the plain ones, but my kids like them with the chocolate drizzle.

Then I let my daughter help with the eating. She’s actually gotten to the point now where she asks if I will take a picture of her eating whatever treat I’ve just baked for the blog, because it’s a pretty surefire way for her to get a free cookie pass. Smart kid. I can never pass up the opportunity to photograph her little freckles.
