Soft Puffy HOLIDAY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

November 29, 2018

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.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: about 3-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1 egg

1 tsp. pure Vanilla extract

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

about 1/2 cup granulated sugar mixed with about 2 TB EACH red & green colored sugar

Directions

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
