So I am not sure about you but I love peanut butter & my oldest Jakob absolutely is a peanut butter addict. So I got in the mood to make some yesterday. Being in Belgium the nice thing about it here is there is a bakery on literally every corner. I have never ever seen American style cookies in them however so I couldn't just run down to the store to pick some out. Besides with my kitchenaid mixer my wonder mother in law got me for Christmas/Birthday gift it is so very easy to just whip stuff up and bake it. So Below is the best recipe for Peanut Butter cookies I have ever tasted (not kidding) You will literally have to force your self not to eat them. Enjoy =D
1 1/2 cups AP flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 medium sized eggs
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Beat together the butter, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Mix in both sugars, salt, and baking powder.
Gradually mix in the flour, half at a time.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls and then roll the balls into sugar. Using a fork, flatten the cookie and make a criss-cross pattern. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet after taking them out for about 8 minutes before removing them with a spatula. Cool completely before storing.
