Peanut Butter Cookies

COOKIE INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter – you can also use smooth
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda

PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking pan with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat. 

In a bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars together; beat in the eggs.

In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into butter mixture.   

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets.  Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.  

Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Every oven is different so it may take longer or shorter. I suggest starting at 8 minutes and then watch them from there. Just be careful not to overbake them. 

Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on a baking sheet. Then move to the cookie sheet to cool completely. Cookies will flatten a little as they cool.

Do me a favor, if you make them, share them in your Instagram stories and tag @thesnippykit so I can share what yours look like! Be sure to check out the Chocolate Chip Cookie and Snickerdoodle recipes.
