I have SOOOOOO much work to do at home that I got right to work this morning and accomplished everything I was thinking about all night baked cookies instead!!
Peanut Butter Cookies
Preheat oven to 325
1 cup butter (2 sticks), room temperature
1 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar, plus more for rolling cookies in
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Place peanut butter and butter into mixer and using paddle attachment, mix until well blended. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla and mix for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add flour, baking powder and salt and then mix until flour is completely mixed it.
Roll into golf-ball sized balls and then roll each ball into granulated sugar. Place each cookie onto either greased cookie sheet or a cookie sheet that is lined with either parchment paper or a silpat mat. Take a dinner fork and press cookie with fork, making a criss cross in the top of each cookie and pressing the cookie down until it is 1/2″ high.
Bake at 325 for 12-14 minutes until very light golden brown on edges.
Store in airtight container for up to 3 days. They’ve never lasted that long at my house.
