How to Make Absolute Best Peanut Butter Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, and 1/4 sugar until well blended.

    Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.

    Drop a teaspoonful of dough per cookie onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  4. Cool on cookie sheet and then transfer to cooling rack.
  5. For frosting:

    Mix 1 stick of melted butter and 3/4 cup of peanut butter together. Blend in the confectioners' sugar until the mixture is thick enough to be spreadable. I start with about a cup, and go from there.



    After the cookies have cooled, spread on the frosting.

    Keep in an airtight container.
