Peanut butter is one of my favorite foods. I’ve always enjoyed it on a variety of things. I eat it on apples, with bananas or honey on a bagel, in a good ole PB&J and of course in cookie form. I made these double peanut butter cookies to send in my Operation Baking gals box for Round 15. Sorry I’m so late posting this recipe.
I’ve made these before with chocolate chips. This time I just used peanut butter chips instead. I liked them much better this way. They were super peanut-buttery. Hubby agreed they were quite tasty.
One Year Ago: Double Chocolate Brownie Roll Out Cookies (perfect for St Patty’s Day)
Two Years Ago: White Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream
Yield: ~3 dozen
1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c unsalted butter, softened
1 c peanut butter at room temperature
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c packed light brown sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in the peanut butter chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion. Using a fork, lightly indent with a crissscross pattern, but do not overly flatten cookies. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies may appear to be underdone, but they are not.
Cool the cookies on the sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a rack to cool completely.
