Have a recipe for peanut butter cookies that don’t come out dry or too sweet?

Question by Mama J.: Have a recipe for peanut butter cookies that don’t come out dry or too sweet?
I want to make some peanut butter cookies tonight with the children to leave out for Santa. I don’t have any shortening in the house so please give me a recipe without that. Have everything else I think I would need though. I don’t like dry cookies, prefer chewier ones. Also not too sweet. I like them sweet, but not sickening sweet like some cookies are.

    Easy As 123 Peanut Butter Cookies

    This has got to be the easiest recipe yet for this wonderful cookie. Don’t be put off by the simplicity of it…and despite challenges to the contrary, the recipe works WITHOUT flour.

    1 cup sugar (you can cut this down to 3/4 cup, if you prefer)
    1 large egg
    1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)

    Combine sugar and egg in mixing bowl, stirring till smooth. Add peanut butter and mix in thoroughly.

    Roll into walnut-sized balls.

    Place the balls on ungreased cookie sheets at least 2″ apart.

    Flatten with the tines of a fork.

    Turn 90 degrees and use fork again to create cross hatches.

    Bake 10 minutes at 375F (or till done). Let cool in pan for 1 minute before removing to cooling rack.

    i always substitute yogurt or apple sauce for oil or butter. its healthier and you cant taste the difference.

    heres a really good recipe…
    1 cup unsalted butter (apple sauce, yogurt)
    1 cup crunchy peanut butter
    1 cup white sugar
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    2 eggs
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
    In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
    Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.
