This is my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe, softer and puffier than the traditional peanut butter cookie that's pressed down with the tines of a fork ~ this one is rolled in red & green colored sugar for a slight crunch, but is soft inside.
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper & set aside.--
Cream butter and sugars together in electric mixer bowl. Add peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Beat well and then scrape down the bowl and paddle.--
Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture all at once and mix just until it’s all incorporated..--
Scoop dough onto the baking sheets with a half-full cookie scoop (larger sizes below). Roll each ball in the colored sugar mixture and press down a glass or something else that's flat.--
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just set. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet a few minutes before removing to a rack or paper to cool completely. Makes about 2-1/2 to 3 dozen cookies
keep any extra colored sugar mixture in a Tupperware container in your pantry for other cookies
