My husband loves peanut butter cookies and wanted me to bake some so I thought I’d share my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. These cookies turn out so yummy and delicious!
1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.
This is a easy and fairly quick recipe and can be altered to be healthier if you like. Use natural peanut butter, turbinado sugar, 4 egg whites or egg substitute and instead of white flour use whole wheat flour.
I hope you get a chance to try this peanut butter cookie recipe. If you have a favorite peanut butter recipe share it with us. Hope to hear from you!
