Peanut Butter Cookies

Can a peanut butter cookie recipe that doesn’t have the criss – cross of fork tines be any good? You betcha! These cookies, are soft and chewy – and full of peanut butter flavor. I promise,  you won’t be able to eat just one.

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup flour, sifted, then measured
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, for coating
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Cream peanut butter and butter until smooth, then add the brown sugar. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat until creamy.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the sifted flour and baking soda. Slowly add the flour in batches into the wet ingredients with the mixer on a low speed.
  4. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Scoop tablespoons of dough, roll into a ball, and dip into the granulated sugar. Place balls 2″ apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes, until cookies puff up, brown around the edges, and crackle on top. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. Makes 12 to 15 cookies.
