Peanut Butter Cookies

12-16 depending on the size you make them

Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt, omit if using salted butter
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup creamy/crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1.5-2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Mix first 4 ingredients together. Set aside.
  2. Beat butter and peanut butter together, until light and fluffy. 2-3 minutes.
  3. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl.
  4. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. About 1-2 minutes.
  5. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl.
  6. Fold flour mixture into wet ingredients, just until incorporated.
  7. I prefer to let the dough set for at least an hour in the fridge. You don't have to but your cookies will spread a little more. Make sure to leave enough space between cookies.
  8. About 1.5 tbsp of cookie dough per cookie.
  9. Bake in pre-heated oven for 9-11 minutes. Times will vary by oven.
  10. Do not overbake, cookies will continue to bake for a minute or so after you take them out of the oven.

Notes

You can add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, more nuts or dried fruit to the cookie dough.

You can portion out the cookie dough, freeze in a single layer. Bag them up for later.

You can depress the cookies with a fork & sprinkle with a little white sugar for a more traditional look.
