Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 30-40 depending on size
2 1/4 C. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 C. packed brown sugar
1 C. peanut butter, creamy or chunky
2 tsp. vanilla extract
What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter, sugars, eggs, peanut butter and vanilla. Beat with a hand mixer or your stand mixer, on medium speed until creamy and combined.
Gradually add in the flour the mixture. Beating on low speed until just combined. Roll into 1″ balls and place on greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart, then criss-cross with a fork (if sticky dip fork in flour or water) These cookies don’t spread very much. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or just until the edges start to brown. They will look like they are not done, but they are. Be careful not to overcook. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on a wire rack.
