Wow, you just saved me a lot of time and work! I have the Joy of Cooking and was about to make these cookies, but seeing the results of your efforts (only one person liked the cookies) made me rethink this. I'll have to find a new recipe, now. Love your blog -- the detail and pics are fantastic. I'll be back to visit!

I came here from Google looking for the original Joy of Cooking recipe, as it's an amazingly good and easy recipe, producing rich, tender, and crumbly cookies, almost like shortbread. (My copy is in storage at the moment.) I hope the one from the New Joy is the same as the original. If it is, I'd be leery of using the stand mixer. It's not only a waste of energy and more stuff to wash, but can overbeat your flour, creating too much gluten and turning a lovely, crumbly cookie into one that's hard and chewy. Sorry to be so low-tech, but all that's really needed, if your butter is at room temp when you start so that creaming it with the sugar is easy, is a wooden spoon.

the type of peanut butter you use is very important when making peanut butter cookies. It can't be the natural kind (where it's just ground peanuts and maybe salt). it has to be the regular skippy or Jif type. prob. has something to do with the stabilizers or emulsifiers used.
