Pampered Chef: Simple Sugar Cookies

  1. Could someone help me? I need an extra-simple recipe for plain sugar cookies (I'm not a baker and I have a customer who is thinking of getting a cookie press but she wants a quick-and-easy cookie recipe to use with it). I have downloaded the cookie press recipes on the last page of this forum (they look great) and will give those to her, but I'd also like something super simple to offer her as well.
    Any help would be appreciated! :)

    Super Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

    Hey DC! I have made these cookies, and I know, they sound really strange with nonexistent recipe ingredients but they taste just like regular p.b. cookies~ Try these out~! I might even make them myself right not to take to my cluster mtg tonight!

    1 cup sugar (you can cut this down to 3/4 cup, if you prefer)
    1 large egg
    1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
    Combine sugar and egg in mixing bowl, stirring till smooth. Add peanut butter and mix in thoroughly.
    Roll into walnut-sized balls.
    Place the balls on ungreased cookie sheets at least 2" apart.
    Flatten with the tines of a fork.
    Turn 90 degrees and use fork again to create cross hatches.
    Bake 10 minutes at 375F (or till done). Let cool in pan for 1 minute before removing to cooling rack.

    Obviously, this is not a PC recipe but you can turn it in to one by using all of your tools! Good Luck! :)

  3. ...or roll them into balls on your stone and use the cooling rack to mark all of the cookies at once!
    (forget where I heard that...somewhere on here, I imagine!)

    O I was thinking of making these the other night, we used to make them soemtimes in Home Ec in High School, and they were the best ever, I have even done them for fundraisers and they're usually the first to go, since they are sooooo easy you can make quite a few of them in no time, ooo the memories, lol. :D

    Use and Care

    The sugar cookie recipe that comes with the Cookie press (spritzes, they are called) is really easy. The cookies are very light and tasty. They also stay soft, which I love!

    Good luck.

  6. thanks for the help!

    Thank you for the great p.b. cookie recipe--it sounds so easy, even I might be able to do it! I'll certainly pass this along to my customer, as well as letting her know that a sugar cookie recipe comes with the cookie press! ;)
  7. Those are the best p.b. cookies EVER!! My mom used to make these all the time, but I didn't know her recipe. I tried making p.b. cookies from many sources (all called for flour) and couldn't understand why I couldn't taste the p.b., then I called mom and she gave me this recipe...I thought she was nuts...how could this possibly turn into cookies!? But I tried it and LOVED it...sorry I doubted you, mom.

    Here is a couple simple recipes (also from mom) although not as easy as the p.b. cookies.

    Sugar Cookies

    2 eggs
    1 1/2 c. sugar
    1 c. margarine
    3/4 t. vanilla (or any flavor you choose)
    1/2 t. salt
    2 T. Baking Powder
    1/2 T. Baking Soda
    4 c. Flour

    Mix margarine and sugar together until creamy. Then add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla, salt, baking powder, and soda. Then add flour 1 cup at a time. Knead dough. Shape into cookies.
    Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or when it looks dry on top.

    Jello Cookies

    1 c. Sugar
    1/2 c. margarine
    1 egg
    1 t. Baking Powder
    1 t. vanilla
    3 oz. Jello
    3 1/2 c. Flour

    Mix margarine and sugar together until creamy. Mix in egg. Add vanilla, baking powder and jello, then mix in flour.

    Shape cookies. Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes.
