Melt In Your Mouth Peanut Butter Cookies91 Reviews
“These Peanut Butter cookies are NOT chewy, they are melt-in-your mouth. The water in them lets you put them in your cookie press.” - by Angie M
Original recipe yields 3 dozen large
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Beat the shortening with the sugars and the peanut butter until well mixed. Beat in the egg and the water.
- Gradually beat in the flour, baking soda and salt. Form cookies on an ungreased baking sheet with a cookie press or roll into balls and smash flat with a floured fork or fingers.
- Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12 minutes or more until done, usually when the puffed up cookie has lowered down to level. Before then it is more chewy.
- For High Altitude, omit water and add eggs last, mixing well, but not beating them as at sea level. Raise the temperature to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C). Or use a convection oven at 312 degrees F (155 degrees C) for 15 min works even better.

"Consider yourself warned by this recipe's submitter: This is NOT a soft and chewy cookie. Since this recipe did not specify how big the dough balls should be, I shaped mine into 1-inch balls. I end..." See moreed up with enough for five dozens. If you are going to roll them into 1-inch balls, DEFINITELY decrease the baking time. I baked them for only 10 minutes, and they turned out quite dark and very crunchy. If I use this recipe again, I may try baking them for only 7 to 9 minutes. Also, when I first looked at this recipe, I was surprised by the amount of salt that it called for. I decreased it to 1/4 teaspoon. Later I found another recipe on this web site called "Chewy Peanut Butter Cookie" that had the EXACT ingredients with no salt at all. Since my family prefers a softer and chewier cookie, I will probably go back to my old recipe. Yet if you like a crunchy cookie, this recipe may just fit the bill."
"These cookies are delicious. It was nice to have a peanut butter cookie recipe for the cookie press. They were a big hit for the holidays. Plus, they freeze beautifully...." See more"
"This is a great recipe for use with a cookie press. As I normally do with cookie recipes, ...I reduced the sugar(s) to 3/4 cup (each), omitted the water and added 1 teaspoon of vanilla instead. I used..." See more the 7 point star mold and pressed an oversized chocolate chip in the center of each before baking ...for only 8 minutes. The cookies came out perfect and they really do melt in your mouth! (P.S. I became a member at allrecipes.com, just so that I could review this recipe!)"
