Peanut Butter Cookies

Porgy was craving for some Peanut Butter Cookies so he forwarded me this recipe from his coworker. The cookies turned out good although the dough was pretty crumbly so it was hard to work with.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter at room temperature (I used the freshly ground peanut butter from Whole Foods)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup peanut butter chips (Didn't used any since I didn't have any)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy
  • Add the sugars and beat until smooth
  • Add the egg and mix well
  • Add the milk and the vanilla extract
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt
  • Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly
  • Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls into the sugar and cover, then onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion
  • Using a fork, lightly indent with a crisss-cross pattern, but do not overly flatten cookies (I didn't not do much of this because the dough was pretty crumbly)
  • Bake for 9 to 10 minutes for chewier texture
  • Cool the cookies on the sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a rack to cool completely

  1. So these are chewy, not crumbly when you bite into them? I've never been able to find a truly chewy PB cookie. I gotta try this!
