Peanut Butter Cookies

The Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar, preferably raw sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup peanut butter, preferably natural

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

 

The Steps:

  1. In a large mixing bowl place the two sugars, butter, and peanut butter and beat until light and fluffy. (I use a medium speed.)
  2. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl add the flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir to incorporate.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Scrape the bowl as needed.
  5. Chill the dough about 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  7. Scoop the dough with a cookie scoop or by the table spoon onto the baking sheet.
  8. Using a fork make a criss-cross pattern, if desired. Dip the fork into the water as needed in order to prevent the fork from sticking to the cookie and distorting the pattern.
  9. Bake 8- 10 minutes until lightly brown, longer if you prefer a crisp cookie.
  10. Use a spatula to move the cookies to a cooling area. Let cool before eating, but don’t be surprised if temptation arises. Just be careful, you don’t want to burn yourself.
  11. Once cooled, store in an airtight container.
