Jif® Celebrates With Its Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookie
ORRVILLE, Ohio, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The makers of Jif® Peanut Butter are inviting fans and passionate cookie lovers everywhere to share their love for the classic peanut butter cookie by baking the most Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookie for National Peanut Butter Cookie Day on June 12th.
"The secret to a delicious peanut butter cookie starts with quality peanut butter. The Jif Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookie is a classic that choosy moms and dads have enjoyed with their families for generations," said Maribeth Burns, Vice President, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company. "We think any day is a good day to make and share a Jif peanut butter cookie with family and friends, but National Peanut Butter Cookie Day gives us all a special reason to have some fun together in the kitchen."
Perhaps no other treat is as recognized for its appearance as the peanut butter cookie, thanks to the quintessential crisscross fork marks. While these marks are decorative – and fun – they also flatten the cookies to help ensure an even bake. On this National Peanut Butter Cookie Day, to celebrate with your family, choose Jif Creamy Peanut Butter and the classic Jif Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookie recipe:
Jif Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies
3/4 cup Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 stick Crisco® Baking Sticks All-Vegetable Shortening or ½ cup Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 3/4 cups Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
