The original peanut butter cookie
Another fabulous recipe from baking blonde! I found this recipe about a month ago and I am embarrassed to say how many times we have made it since. These are truly delicious and are even wonderful with NO chips. Enjoy!
The Original Peanut Butter Cookie
1 cup + 2 T peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 T milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Peanut Butter chips (any chip combination is great, I've even used reese's pieces)
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup Sugar (for rolling dough balls, may need more or less)
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the peanut butter, butter. Once combined beat in the white sugar, and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.
In a large bowl wisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gently add to creamed mixture and mix until almost combined. Fold in chocolate and peanut butter chips. Chill dough for at least 15 minutes.
Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. Genlty roll the dough balls into sugar and place dough balls on baking sheets. Carefully press each ball with fork tines to create a criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheets for 5-10 minutes until sturdy enough to be transfered to a wire rack to cool completely.
