Peanut Butter Cookies

Another great American. The peanut butter cookie! Almost all (non allergic) Americans love them and can’t get enough of them.

These cookies are great for kids, and they go great with milk! Serious!

They don’t need much more presentation, because the are already famous, I give you, the Peanut butter cookies!!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

1- Beat the butter until creamy, 2 minutes. Add the sugars, beat for 2 more minutes. Mix in the peanut butter and egg. Mix together the  flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

2- Stir the dry ingredients into the sugar butter mixture.

3- Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

4- Preheat oven to 375°F. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with a fork. Bake until light brown, 9 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for a minute; transfer to rack to cool completely.

 

And that’s it!

Tip of the day:  For chewier cookies, bake at 300°F for 15 minutes. You can also try variations like adding some peanuts, or any other ingredient.. M and Ms for kids! These are great to introduce kids into baking!

Feel free to request any recipe you want me to cover!

 

See you soon !

    I love peanut butter but somehow we dont seem to use it much in British cooking/baking. I might give these a go.:-) dangerous on the hips if more than two pass your lips lol

  4. This sounds super yummy! Thanks for stopping by over at my blog 🙂

  5. This looks great…I’m just sad my oven is still busted. My microwave takes care of my baking needs for now. Any chance this recipe can be done using a microwave? What changes to the recipe would need to be made?

    And thanks a bunch for stopping by my blog!

    Best regards,
    Mary

  6. All over these at the end of Vegan Month… or maybe I could veganise them ?!
