Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies

Hi Everybody! 
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!!!  😉

Ingredients:

  • 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!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Welcome to Sweet 16’s Country Kitchen~

This quote really stuck out to me, something I often like to ponder. It’s so easy to complain about our circumstances which we are going through or anything really, and often times we miss the beauty of the flower that is blooming in the dry desert. It is there waiting for us to pick it and enjoy its true loveliness.

“Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses.” – Proverb

“Cultivate an attitude of happiness. Cultivate a spirit of optimism. Walk with faith, rejoicing in the beauties of nature, in the goodness of those you love, in the testimony which you carry in your heart concerning things divine.” – Gordon B. Hinckley

This is a yummy cookie, enjoy! 🙂

This is a crunchy, chocolate, peanut butter, dessert, that I found in a Taste Of Home Cookbook. It takes a little bit of time but is well worth it. Also, this brownie delight is extra delicious with a scoop of mint ice cream. 🙂

Enjoy!
