Ingredients

  • 3/4 Cups butter, soft
  • 3/4 Cups smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 Teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 Teaspoons Kosher salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar and mix until just combined. Do not overmix so that the butter begins to melt. Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and egg and mix until just combined. Fold in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. On a baking sheet, portion the dough into 2-ounce balls spaced evenly apart and use a fork to press the crosshatch pattern into each ball. Bake until golden brown along the edge, about 10-13 minutes. Allow to cool before removing from sheet tray.

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.
