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.
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.
