Note from Editor Kevin: Peanut butter cookies are a staple in the dessert repertoire of most Amish cooks. Recipes are slightly different from cook to cook and community to community. The Amish Cook herself has a superb peanut butter cookie recipe, but I wanted to share one that comes to us from the relatively new community of Utica, Minnesota in the far southeast part of the state. This is a beautiful area of rolling hills and bauxite mines along the the banks of the Mississippi River. Rachel took a crack at this cookie recipe, so I’ll turn it over to her.

Because Lovina had a much deserved week off, I have decided to do a step-by-step recipe from our newest book, Amish Cooks Across America: Recipes and Traditions from Maine to Montana, which can be pre-ordered here. We are eagerly awaiting the official release date of May 28th, but were excited to learn today that we should receive some advance copies next week!!! I can’t wait to see the actual finished book.
