New Food Friday- Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies were just amazing! I decided to make them last minute for a Cotton Bowl watch party and wow was I surprised how good they were. I got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen here. I only changed a few things- I used crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy and I didn't add the peanut butter chips, just mini chocolate chips.


The best part about these was that they were super moist. The peanut butter and chocolate were delicious together. Luckily they all got eaten at the party so I didn't have to try and resist them at home!

Peanut Butter Cookies-
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup peanut butter at room temperature (I used chunky)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips

For sprinkling: 1 Tbsp sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside

In large bowl, beat the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until smooth. Add the egg, milk and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly. Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in chocolate chips.



Place sprinkling sugar on a plate. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls into the sugar, then onto ungreased cookies sheets. Using a fork lightly press with criss-cross pattern.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. They may appear underdone, but they aren't.

Let cool on cookie sheet for a minute, then let cool completely on rack.

Enjoy!!


I will be linking up with some of these parties!
