Classic Peanut Butter Cookies!

Growing up I loved peanut butter cookies, they were my all time favorite for sure. I cannot really remember a time where we did not have peanut butter cookies made on Christmas or for the Holiday seasons. I do remember they were almost always bagged ones instead of homemade. I prefer to go with the homemade version instead of the store bought crap for many, many reasons. Number one reason is, the extra junk they add to the mix is not needed but they do it because they can! Yuck! These cookies honestly are the best ever! They are crispy on the outside and yet super chewy on the inside!

You Wil Need:

1/2 Cup Organic Butter, room temp
1/2 Cup Organic Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Organic Sugar
1/2 Cup Organic Peanut Butter (or homemade)
1 Organic Pasture-Rasied Egg, room temp
1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1 1/3 Cup Organic Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 tsp Real Salt
3/4 tsp Baking Soda (Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 tsp Baking Powder

Cream the sugars and butter together 

Add egg, and vanilla, mix well

Add the peanut butter and mix well 

Looks so pretty

Mix in the dry ingredients


Cover in plastic cling and place in the fridge for 3 hours minimum 

Using a 1 tbsp size ice cream scoop, scoop the dough and roll into a ball

Place on baking sheet lined with unbleached parchment paper

Dip a small fork into some sugar

Press down on cookies going in both directions opposite each other, this gives the cookies that classic look

Bake 350 for 9-11 minutes

I took ours down front for the office staff and the guests here at our apartment place! They look amazing!
