WHAT’S THE BEST PEANUT BUTTER TO USE FOR THESE COOKIES?
- I use smooth, salty peanut butter for the greatest results.
- Although it’s not necessary, sweetened peanut butter will work just fine if that’s what you have on hand. You may want to reduce the sugar by 2 tablespoons, though.
- After opening the container, stir the peanut butter thoroughly if you’re using a natural variety without stabilizers. That jar’s oily top will result in extremely runny cookies.
- The recipe for peanut butter cookies works well with any brand that you prefer!
- Prep Time :1 minute
- Cook Time: 10 minutes
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Servings: 18 cookies
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 180g
- 1/2 cup butter unsalted, room temp 113g
- 1 cup peanut butter 250g
- 1/2 cup brown sugar 100g, lightly packed
- 1/2 cup sugar 100g
- 1 tsp vanilla extract 5mL
- 1 egg large, room temp
- 3/4 tsp baking powder 3g
- Heat the oven to 350°F.
- Flour and baking powder should be combined by sifting them together.
- Using a paddle attachment on a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars. Optionally, add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons of sea salt.
- After adding, integrate peanut butter completely.
- Add the egg and vanilla extract, whisk, and then add the flour mixture.
- Put the dough on a baking sheet that has been parchment paper-lined and form one-inch balls.
- With a fork, crisscross cookies to flatten them.
- For around ten minutes, bake the cookies.
- Cookies need time to set up before being moved, so let them cool completely on the baking sheet.
- The cookies will be baked till nearly done. When you take them out of the oven, they’ll settle in and keep baking thanks to the interior heat.
- They will be extremely soft right out of the oven, so give them some time to cool; after they are firm enough to handle, they will taste quite good.
- Add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the batter if your peanut butter isn’t particularly salty.
