Happy National Peanut Butter Day!
According to my Celebrate Every Day wall calendar, today, January 24th, is National Peanut Butter Day.
To celebrate I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite recipes with y’all – Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!
I don’t know about you, but peanut butter has been a staple in my diet since I was a tiny tot – and very picky eater.
This recipe is easy – great to make with little kids – and it is also quick to make.
You can use your favorite brand of peanut butter for this. I’m not a choosy mom, but I like JIF.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
1 C Crisco
1 C peanut Butter
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ C four
1 C chocolate chips (optional – you can leave the chocolate out for delicious traditional peanut butter cookies)
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Combine all ingredients together, saving the chocolate chips for last.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, divide the cookie dough into the size cookies you want and place them on a cookie sheet.
Note: they don’t spread so the size they are going into the oven is roughly the size they will come out of the oven.
Press the cookies down a little so they are more cookie shaped than ball-like. (If you opt to leave the chocolate chips out, use a fork to create the beautiful/traditional cross hatches on the top of the cookies.)
Bake for 7 minutes.
After removing them from the oven let them cool before enjoying!
Not enough peanut butter you say?
Try sandwiching two cookies together with a spread of peanut butter straight out of the jar. YUM!
Want to learn more about my Celebrate Every Day calendar?
It is a wall calendar with a reason to celebrate each day (national, and international), such as last Friday was “International Sweatpants Day”. January 4th was “National Spaghetti Day”.
I believe we could all use a little extra joy in our lives, a reason to celebrate and add a little pep to our step. I think this calendar is a great way to combat the doldrums of winter and the current state of the world. It makes it easy to find little things to celebrate, every day.
If you want your own Celebrate Every Day wall calendar you can get it below. There is no need to worry about having missed most of January…there are still eleven months of celebrations ahead (that’s 341 days of celebrating)!
In addition tot he daily celebrations, I love that this calendar has plenty of room for me to write reminders, appointments, and important events that happened in the square for each day. It is also colorful. In addition to each daily reason to celebrate, it also tells you what that month celebrates, .e. January is “Creativity Month”. Informative, fashionable, and functional…What more could yo want from a calendar?
Happy National Peanut Butter Day – I hope it is a day of yumminess for you!
