This week, taking a break from the Easter Extravaganza, we made Peanut Butter cookies! Yummy. I have always been fond of the little cross hatching the fork makes.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Extra granulated sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 375.
Stir together flour, soda and salt.Set aside.
In a mixer beat butter for 30 seconds. Add peanut butter and sugars; beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Beat well. Add dry ingredients and beat until well combined.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls; (medium cookie scoop). Roll in extra granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Make a criss cross pattern with the tines of a dinner fork.
Bake about 10 minutes.
Cool one minute before removing from baking sheet to wire rack.
Makes about 24 cookies.
Next week: Using left over milk chocolate!
