Cooking with Kelly: Perfect Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

Oh peanut butter, how I love thee.  I eat peanut butter probably five days out of every week in different forms and fashions. I have my preferred brands and styles, as well as delivery methods.  But the cookie form is always an excellent choice.

This peanut butter cookie recipe yields a slightly crunchy, decidedly sweet final product that's a bit crumbly and chewy. What's even better about this recipe is that it takes very few common ingredients and go from an idea to in your tummy in no time.

Perfect Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

1 cup peanut butter (don't use natural peanut butter, they'll never set up)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup coarsely chopped peanuts

Whisk together the egg and peanut butter, then add the sugar and stir until combined.  Add remaining ingredients, then roll out cookies into 1 Tablespoon portions.

Place on a cookie sheet, then use a fork to add an X on top of each cookie.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes and allow to cool for five minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to a cooling rack.

Can you believe I haven't tried peanut butter cookies before? Maybe I have but I honestly don't remember! In other words, this recipe is getting added to my must-try list!
