Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

For possibly a supportive side note: Let your peanut cookies sit a couple minutes or so in the oven if you wish for a bit crunchier batch. Then you can rest at ease from that point on - they'll stay exactly as soft as they were at the first place for days.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp fine table salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter without salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a clean bowl, sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat unsalted butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar by using an electric mixer. Beat on low for 5 minutes or until the butter is fluffy and pale in color.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract to the butter. Continue to mix for another 5 minutes or until the egg disappears into the butter.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter and beat on low. You can use a spatula to mix the flour into butter if you find it easier for you. You should end up with a rather thick batter.
  • Using a tablespoon, take out balls of dough and place them on the lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart from one another.
  • Press the fork tines twice on each dough ball to flatten the cookies while making a hashtag-like pattern. (this step is optional)
  • Place the tray in the freezer for at least 15 minutes to firm up (or 30 minutes in the fridge).
  • Preheat the oven at least 10 minutes before baking.
  • Put the cookie tray in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Once the time is up, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

Notes

  • Store the cookies in an airtight container and they’re all good for the next 2 weeks.
  • A refreshing glass of milk or sweet raspberry smoothie would possibly go just right with peanut butter cookies.
