Peanut Butter Cookies
Not much beats the comfort of home baked Peanut Butter Cookies.
Cook Time10 mins
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar (7 oz)
1 cup sugar (7 oz)
1 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup dry roasted salted peanuts
Preheat the oven to 350℉.
Chop the peanuts in a food processor until they are crumbled into little chunks.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Beat the butter in a mixer until light and smooth. Add in the sugars and blend for 3 minutes until smooth. Add in the peanut butter and blend until fully blended. Add in the eggs and vanilla and then add in the flour mixture and finally the peanut crumbles.
Measure out two tablespoon sized dough balls and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or a silicon mat. Using a fork, make the crisscross pattern and bake for 10 - 12 minutes. The edges should start to turn brown, but remove them from the oven before the tops turn.
Let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to cooling rack.
Once the cookies are cool, you can spread on some peanut butter and then dip them into chocolate for an extra special treat! I highly recommend it.
