Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
With so many new
crazy amazing cookie recipes floating around it is sometimes easy to forget about classic, simple, delicious cookies such as this peanut butter cookie.
Crisp on the outside with a little bit of a dense chew in the middle,
if these are not already a favorite in your house I have no doubt that they will be added to your list of favorite cookies!
Peanut Butter Cookies makes 2-3 dozen depending on size recipe from Thru the Bugs on My Windshield
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used adam’s natural pb but your favorite brand will do)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla (out of vanilla?? They still taste awesome without it)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and beat until well combined.
Add the vanilla.
Mix in the dry ingredients until the dough comes together.
Roll dough into balls, or use a cookie scoop. You can make these any size you like, just adjust the baking time accordingly. My cookies were about 1.5 tbsp of dough.
Use the tines of a fork to smush the cookies down in a criss cross pattern.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Cool on pan for a few minutes before removing to wire racks to cool.
