Puffy peanut butter cookies (three different ways)

I wanted to make a puffy peanut butter cookie and this recipe was perfect! I coated them all in sugar, per Rob’s request. Then I used a couple in smores and dumped melted chocolate on two others. Boom!


  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups flour


Cream shortening, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg. Stir in dry ingredients. Scoop out 2 tbs dough and pile mounds high. Roll in sugar. Chill. Preheat oven to 350. Stagger on cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners. Bake 9 minutes. Cool.

Melt 1 cup Hershey kisses or chocolate chips w 1 tsp oil in 45 second increments until you can stir melted. Drizzle on cookies.

For smores – break graham cracker sheet in. Layer 1/2 Graham cracker sheet with a tsp melted chocolate, a pb cookie, 1 toasted marshmallow, 1 tsp melted chocolate and top with other Graham cracker half.

Store in covered container.
