Peanut Butter Cookies question-- cook time

synecdoche | Jun 18, 2008 07:43 PM

I am going through my grandmother's old notebooks and recipe cards and I found a recipe for peanut butter cookies that I'd like to try to make. Trouble is, my grandma (as they tend to be) was a much better, far more intuitive cook than I am.

Anyway, the cookie recipe says, when it comes to cook temperature and time, "Bake in a quick oven." I'd like to try the recipe out, but I'm wondering about that direction. Obviously trial and error is the only way, but I was hoping somebody around here could maybe give me an idea of where to begin.

It is quite possible the recipe was copied from somewhere--even the back of the peanut butter jar-- but I'm not sure. It DOES have flour, as well as both white and brown sugar, and some baking soda. (I don't know if I should reproduce the entire recipe in case it is copyrighted by somebody.)

Any ideas? I was going to give it a go at 350 for 10-12 minutes, but "quick" is throwing me off here. If this is the recipe I am thinking it was, my grandma's peanut butter cookies were always pretty crisp.
