Peanut Butter Cookies

Cookies are right up there with muffins for me! I LOVE 'em!!!  Since Madison has been sick I did what any great mom would do...I made her cookies! And boy don't I love a good chocolate chip cookie, but Maddie and I have been eating the chips as a snack lately so we ran out. What's a girl to do?!?

Use what she's got, of course! Peanut butter! I haven't had a homemade peanut butter cookie since I was a kid and this was my first time making them all by myself (I remember my aunts making them when I was little).

These cookies are crumbly and sweet and Maddie can barely wait for them to cool down before she grabs one!  "Hhhhot", she says...then digs right in!  That's my girl! Enjoy!!!

Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 15 - 20 min 

1 1/4 Cup of Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Stick of Unsalted Butter (softened)
3/4 Cup of Granulated Sugar
2 tbs of Brown Sugar
1 cup of Peanut Butter
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Egg

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
  • In a large bowl blend together the butter, sugars, peanut butter, vanilla extract and egg (beat the egg separately prior to adding to bowl).

  •  Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until just incorporated (mixture should be light and airy).

  • Use a tablespoonful of dough for each cookie and roll into a ball.
  • Use a fork to make the famous peanut butter cookie impressions (don't be shy about pressing into the dough).
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes (depending on your oven).
  • Allow the cookies to cool on a cooling rack before serving. 

Happy eating!
