My coworkers keep giving me a hard time because I never bring in baked goods. Sorry that I’m usually spending my cooking time for dinner to feed MYSELF and not you people, but alas, I decided tomorrow was as good a day as any for peanut butter cookies.
Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp peanut butter (chunky or smooth will work)
Preheat your oven to 350 deg F. Line your cookie sheets with a Silpat or parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.
Beat on high until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, add the egg and continue to beat on medium speed until incorporated.
Add the peanut butter and mix on medium/low speed until combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
