This melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookie recipe comes from Kim Nguyen and her blog, Lovin' from the Oven. For a slightly more decadent peanut butter cookie, Kim suggests adding some chocolate chips or M&M's to the recipe.

Makes About 2 Dozen Creamy Peanut Butter Cookies

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 37 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • extra sugar for rolling

Preparation:

Preheat over to 350 degrees F.

Beat together the butter, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Mix in both sugars, salt, and baking powder. Gradually mix in the flour, half at a time. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.

Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls, and then roll the balls into sugar. Using a fork, flatten the cookie and make a criss-cross pattern. Bake for 12-13 minutes. After removing the cookies from the oven, let cookies cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes. Remove with a spatula, and allow to cool completely before storing.
