Classic Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
It just so happens I always have peanut butter on hand. This time of year there is a big container of regular peanut butter from Christmas and other holiday baking left over. The comforting scents of home along with the oven heating up the house is just PERFECT during the cooler season. Below are the basic ingredients needed to create this yummy cookie. Don’t be afraid and experiment with the new honey roast varieties peanut butters.
- unsalted butter
- peanut butter
- white sugar
- 1 brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1½ teaspoons baking soda
- pinch of sugar and a few chopped peanuts
If you would rather not use an electric mixer this recipe is perfect made old school. You can easily move these ingredients around in a large bowl with sturdy wooden spoon. Hand mixers are useful for this recipe as well. Below are the steps to create this cookie in a flash!
- Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars together in a bowl; beat in eggs.
- In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into butter mixture. Put dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Roll dough into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.
- Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown.
