Grandma's Peanut Butter Cookies





I have tried many other peanut butter cookie recipes, but this one is still our favorite. Crispy, but a light texture . . . they almost melt in your mouth!

  3. Sift together dry milk, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, stir into butter mixture.
  4. Let dough stand 15 minutes.

  1. Does Carnation Powdered Milk have added malt...or a different taste/texture profile compared to regular, generic powdered milk?

    THESE are exactly the type of pb cookie I remember from my childhood and I want to replicate them if at all possible!! Thank you for any precisions!
