These soft peanut butter cookies are effortless to make, full of peanut butter taste, and don’t require any dough chilling!
It’s been my goal this year to post more traditional recipes on the blog. As significantly as I really like creative enjoyable desserts, I believe it’s critical to have classic, simple recipes to hold in your recipe box. It all started out with these oatmeal raisin cookies, then these classic lemon bars, and now these exceptionally soft peanut butter cookies.
If you adore soft, bakery fashion peanut butter cookies, you are going to Adore these cookies!
To make these cookies you’ll commence out with some fundamental dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, and a minor salt. Don’t forget my publish about how to measure flour? Make sure you measure your flour properly by spooning it into the measuring cup and leveling it off with the back of a knife. You want to stay away from scooping the flour from the container simply because you can end up with as well much flour in your cookies.
Then you’ll mix with each other some butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. As often, I really like to use far more brown sugar in my cookies due to the fact it adds a lot more flavor and moisture to them. And of program the star ingredient in these cookies is the peanut butter. I propose making use of a creamy peanut butter like Jif or Skippy, just steer clear of using a all-natural peanut butter in which the oil separates in the jar. You’ll be employing three/four cup of peanut butter in this recipe, due to the fact what’s a peanut butter cookie with out a hefty dose of peanut butter? Right?
Along with the other moist components, you’ll also be mixing in one egg and some vanilla extract.
When you’ve mixed up the cookie dough, scoop it out of the bowl, roll every 1 in some sugar, and use a fork to make that traditional criss-cross pattern you see on peanut butter cookies.
Considering that you’re presently using some granulated sugar in this recipe, I like to set aside a number of tablespoons to roll the cookies in. The sugar adds a small crunch and some thing special to these cookies that I really really like! But you can merely skip this stage if you desire.
To get super soft peanut butter cookies, I recommend only baking them for about ten-12 minutes. The tops of the cookies should look set, that’s when you want to take away them from the oven. As they great on the baking sheet, the cookies will firm up, but nevertheless stay super soft. I do this with all of my cookies and they remain soft for days! Trust me on this one.
If you favor your cookies a tiny much more crunchy, just bake them for a handful of far more minutes.
My favorite issue about this cookie recipe is that there’s no dough chilling required. The dough requires about 15 minutes to whip up and prep for the oven, ten minutes to bake, and about five minutes to cool.
That signifies you can be eating soft, warm peanut butter cookies in about 30 minutes!
