This is one of my very favorite peanut butter cookie recipes. Simple and sweet. Nobody stops at just one.
They are quick and easy enough to make “just because” and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already.
My kids and I made a batch of these to send in to my husband’s work “just because.”
Sometimes we just feel like makin’ cookies. 🙂
** Note this recipe requires 30 minutes of chill time before baking.
Recipe slightly adapted from bitzngiggles
2/3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/3 cups light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
In a mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the salt, flour, and baking soda and stir until just combined. Cover and put in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375° and lightly grease a cookie sheet.
Place dough into rounded tablespoons on the cookie sheet. Do not flatten. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool and serve!
