I would like a p-nut butter cookie. It must have the fork prongs dented in it to make me happy.


I use the tenderizing side of a meat mallot to make the indentions. It goes alot faster. And no I don't whack the dough to make the indentions.
Laughing



are p-nut butter cookies supposed to be pronged or forked or "tenderized"
is there a point to it?

The early peanut butter cookies were rolled thin and cut into shapes. They were also dropped and made into balls. They did not have fork marks. The first reference to the famous criss-cross marks created with fork tines was published in the Schenectady Gazette on July 1, 1932. The Peanut Butter Cookies recipe said "Shape into balls and after placing them on the cookie sheet, press each one down with a fork, first one way and then the other, so they look like squares on waffles." Pillsbury, one of the large flour producers, popularized the use of the fork in the 1930s. The Peanut Butter Balls recipe in the 1933 edition ofPillsbury's Balanced Recipes instructed the cook to press the cookies using fork tines. The 1932 or 1933 recipes do not explain why this advice is given, though: peanut butter cookie dough is dense, and without being pressed, it will not cook evenly. Using a fork to press the dough is a convenience; bakers can also use a cookie shovel.

What in the world is a cookie shovel? Shocked

My hand, maybe????? Shoveling them in my mouth as soon as they're cool enough to handle!

I've pressed PB cookies with a potato masher before.

Interesting info on PB cookies. Thanks!

I'm also a cookie shoveler.

Must use fork. Press once, turn 90˚, press again.

Agree. The double-fork press really brings out the flavor!
