Our niece was visiting and wanted to make peanut butter cookies. These cookies remind me of the large cookies you would find in a glass jar on the counter in a traditional coffee shop.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- Dry-roasted, salted peanuts, for sprinkling (optional)
Combine butter, peanut butter and granulated sugar. Mix together until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla, stirring to combine.
In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda.
Combine both mixtures until just mixed.
Roll into 2 tbsp balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Press down with fork both horizontally and vertically.
Bake in oven preheated to 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, until golden brown.
Cool on wire cookie rack.
