This is a simple recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies. It’s a traditional-ish recipe as it’s pure without any additions. It’s nice and soft and the sugar coating makes the outside crunchy. Very easy to make, Enjoy!
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 cups + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream the softened butter and both sugars together on medium speed until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix on high until combined.Add peanut butter and mix on high until combined. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, shift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together. Add to the wet ingredients and mix on low until combined. Dough will be thick, yet very sticky. Cover dough tightly and chill for at least 3 hours (and up to 2 days) in the refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Take out cookie dough from the fridge and let it warm up a little bit. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Roll balls of dough (about 1.5 tablespoons of dough per cookie) and roll into granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Press fork into the tops to create the criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 11 minutes or until very lightly browned on the sides. The centers will look very soft and undone. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
