- 24 cookies
- Delectable treat
- Soft and chewy texture
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until well combined and creamy.
- Add the egg to the butter mixture and beat until thoroughly incorporated. Then, mix in the vanilla extract.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the dough.
- Roll the dough into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.
- Use a fork to create a crisscross pattern on each cookie by pressing down gently on the dough ball with the tines of the fork.
- Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden.
- Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Enjoy your freshly baked peanut butter cookies with a glass of milk or your favorite beverage!
