The Best Peanut Butter Cookie
peanut butter, crunchy or creamy
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheets with no-stick spray or use parchment paper or silpat.
2In a bowl with an electric mixer beat together peanut butter and sugar until combined.
3Beat in egg and baking soda until combined.
4Measure out heaping teaspoonsful of the dough, roll into balls (about 1 - 1 1/2" in diameter). Place on baking sheet about 1 inch apart.
5With the tines of a fork, flatten balls, making a crisscross pattern.
6Bake in the middle of the oven until pale golden, about 10 minutes. (for crisper cookies, bake 1 minute longer)
7Cool cookies on baking sheet 2 minutes. Then, transfer to racks to cool completely.
