This PB cookie recipe is my favorite :) I've tried the 3 ingredient Kraft recipe but nothing beats the taste and texture of an old fashion cookie recipe :) I hope you will enjoy them as much as we do :)

Serves:

48 small cookies, 36 medium size

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 c
flour
1/2 tsp
baking powder
3/4 tsp
baking soda
1 c
butter, softened
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 c
white sugar
1 1/2 c
crunchy or regular peanut butter (i used crunchy :)
3
small eggs
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
3/4 c
roasted salted peanuts (ground in food processor until it looks like bread crumbs)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl.
2
In large bowl with electric mixture (or by hand) beat butter until creamy. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 4 minutes (scrape sides down), beat in peanut butter until fully mixed, then eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Gently stir dry ingredients into peanut butter mixture. Add ground peanuts; stir gently until just mixed
3
Scoop dough with a tablespoon, roll into balls, placing them 2 inches apart on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Press each dough ball with a fork dipped in cold water to make crisscross design.
4
Bake until cookies are puffed and slightly brown along edges, but not top, 8-10 minutes (they will not look fully baked but they do continue to bake on the cookies sheet!). Cool cookies for a good 5 minutes before transferring them to wire rack to cool completely. You can store the cookies in an airtight container, up to 7 days. :)
