All the Good Cookies

Peanuts and peanut butter pack extra peanutiness into these flour­less cookies, and their saltiness is the perfect balance to the brown sugar. For a sure bake sale sellout, take them to the next level by dunking half of each cookie into melted chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4  Cup  natural-style creamy peanut butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2  Cup  light brown sugar
  • large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2  Teaspoons  baking soda
  • 3/4  Cups  coarsely chopped cocktail peanuts
  • Chocolate sprinkles (optional)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Place the peanut butter, sugar, eggs, and baking soda in a large mixer bowl and beat until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Stir in the chopped peanuts.

Using a heaping small (2-teaspoon size) cookie scoop, drop the dough about 1½ inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Top cookies with chocolate sprinkles, if using.

Transfer to the oven and bake until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating the cookie sheets on the oven racks halfway through the baking time. Cool on the cookie sheets for 5 min­utes. Transfer to wire racks and cool completely. Repeat with the re­maining dough on cool cookie sheets.

Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.

Peanut Butter Cookie Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Peanut Butter Cookie Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
