Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

I adapted this yummy recipe from Averie Cooks… my cookies are smaller and the process here is a bit less fussy. The cookie? Uncompromisingly good.

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies
Ingredients
  • 2 large egg s
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (not natural or homemade, too runny)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
  • granulated sugar, for rolling
Directions

Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray; set aside.

Beat egg, peanut butter, butter, sugars, and vanilla on medium-high speed until fully incorporated, light and fluffy. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and beat on low speed until just incorporated. Scrape down the bowl as needed.

Use a 1” cookie scoop or your hands to make balls. Rolls each in granulated sugar and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for about 9-10 minutes, or until tops are juuuuuuust starting to get the teeniest bit golden.
