Have you found yourself holding a jar of peanut butter in one hand and a spoon in the other? I know I have. If you have, this recipe is for YOU. Though it seems like peanut butter can’t get better than a dollop straight from the jar, this recipe trumps even its purest form. Soft and chewy, these peanut butter cookies will have you reaching for more.

Oven Temperature: 350˚F

Baking Time: 8-9 minutes

Makes: 20 3inch cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup peanut butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 large egg

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350˚F.

Melt peanut butter and sugars over medium heat on a stove. Stir in salt, baking soda and vanilla.

Let cool for 5-10 minutes and then whisk in the egg (so the egg doesn’t cook).

Then stir in flour.

Roll dough into 1.5 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Using a drinking glass/measuring cup (or your hands) flatten dough to 1/4 inch thick.

Bake for 8-9 minutes, just until edges start to turn golden. Remove from oven and let rest on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Remove to racks to cool completely. Enjoy!
