We found this great recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies over on Tasty Kitchen a few weeks ago, and we have already made several batches per week since then! – They are just that amazing!!! 😉
- 1 -1/4 cup Flour
- 3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 cup Softened Butter (1 stick)
- 1 cup Peanut Butter, creamy or crunchy, your preference!
- 3/4 cup Sugar
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
- 1 whole Egg
- 1 tablespoon Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degree’s. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand-mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and peanut butter together until smooth and fluffy. Add the sugars and mix until combined. Then incorporate the egg, followed by the milk and vanilla. Gradually add in the flour mixture and beat until thoroughly combined.
Put a few tablespoons of sugar in a shallow small bowl for rolling your cookies. Using a medium cookie scoop, portion out your dough, roll each into a ball and roll each ball in the sugar until coated on all sides. Place them on the prepared baking sheet, allowing room for the cookies to spread out while baking.
Bake for 10-12 minutes , being careful not to over-bake. The cookies will look slightly underdone in the center, but they are not. They will set up as they cool.
Happy Baking & Bon Appétit!
