History of Peanut Butter Cookies:

Peanut butter itself was invented in the late 19th century by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, a physician and health advocate. He created a paste made from boiled peanuts that he believed would be a nutritious food source for his patients. The first recipe for peanut butter cookies appeared in a cookbook published in 1916, although it wasn’t until the 1930s that peanut butter became widely popular and the cookie became a staple in American households.

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Cookies:

The key ingredient in peanut butter cookies, of course, is peanut butter. When selecting peanut butter for this recipe, be sure to choose a creamy or smooth variety rather than chunky. You’ll also need sugar, either granulated or brown, eggs, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. You can also add in additional ingredients like chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or coconut flakes for added flavor and texture.
