Peanut Butter Cookies

It is hard to let a snow storm, no matter how insignificant the accumulation, go with out baking a batch of cookies. This is the perfect recipe for this situation because it produces a mere 16 cookies. They will disappear far quicker than the snow. I use a 1 1/2″ ice cream scoop for the cookie dough – The perfect size for most cookies.

1 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter

1 Cup Granulated Sugar

1 Egg

1 tsp. Vanilla

1 tsp. Baking Soda

1/4 Cup Chopped Salted Peanuts

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Using a standing mixer combine all the ingredients except the peanuts
  • Mix until well combined, then mix in the chopped peanuts
  • Scoop the dough balls onto the parchment lined cookie sheet in four rows of four
  • Wet the tines of a fork and make a cross hatch on each cookie flattening them
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes
  • Cool completely on the parchment as they are delicate when they are hot
