Soft Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies for November

I have been searching for the perfect soft chewy peanut butter cookie recipe and I think I finally found it thanks to Clockwork Lemon


Soft Peanut Butter Cookies from Clockwork Lemon

(adapted from Epicurious)

  • 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter (natural/unsweetened)
  • 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1  large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips

1. Preheat the oven to 350 and grease some cookie trays.

2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. In a mixer's bowl cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter, and egg until well combined then add the vanilla extract

4. With a wooden spoon or the mixer on a low setting mix the flour mixture in with the peanut butter mixture in three additions until just combined.

5. Roll out 1.5 tbsp balls of cookie dough and gently flatten with a fork.

6. Bake for ten minutes, rotating the cookie sheets after five minutes. Let cool on the tray until firm enough to move to a cooling rack.
