@bdylanhollis has a passion for old, community-based cookbooks. He picks one recipe and book out for each video and gives it a try — and then gives honest critiques of them. His side comments are often laugh-aloud funny.
“This is not going to work. This is not how you make cookies,” he said about the Magic Peanut Butter Cookies, from an unidentified cookbook from 1984. “We’re going to end up with a tray of melted peanut butter.” Taking the cookies out of the oven and trying one, he changed his tune, saying, “These are melt-in-your-mouth brilliant.”
And they were — I gave them to a friend the next day before I ate all two dozen!
MAGIC PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES FROM 1984
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
Mix the peanut butter, sugar, and egg until combined. (You can use an electric mixer or mix by hand.)
Using about a tablespoonful of dough at a time, form the dough into balls. Place each one on the prepared pans, leaving about 2 inches between the cookies.
Use a fork to flatten the cookies and make a cross-hatch pattern on top of each one.
Bake (one pan at a time) 8 to 10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned and the centers appear set.
Place the pan on a wire rack and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Then carefully transfer the cookies from the pan directly onto a wire rack to continue cooling.
