Cookies | Peanut Butter Recipes
Homemade cookies are our favourite everyday treat. We love them in any form - soft, crunchy, chocolatey or glazed. But these crunchy peanut butter cookies are one of the best. They're soft and crunchy at the same time, loaded with toasted peanuts what makes them amazingly addictive. For them you will need only regular cookie ingredients plus peanut butter and toasted peanuts.
For these simple peanut butter cookies you won't need some extra ingredients, just regular cookie ingredients such as PLAIN FLOUR, SUGAR, EGG, BAKING POWDER and SALT.
Obviously, you will need peanut butter. The best peanut butter is commercial PEANUT BUTTER not the healthy version. You can choose from creamy or crunchy peanut butter - both works well. This recipe features a mix of caster and packed brown sugar which gives nice sandy texture of the cookies. In the end, TOASTED PEANUTS - we like to buy unroasted peanuts and roast them slightly in the oven - you will need only 5 -6 minutes for this.
Making these cookies is so easy. You can made the dough in 10 minutes once you have ready all ingredients. First prepare peanuts by toasting them lightly in the oven to accent the flavour and add some crunch.
First combine FLOUR with BAKING POWDER and SALT in one bowl. Whisk MELTED BUTTER, BOTH SUGARS, PEANUT BUTTER and EGG in a medium bowl. You will get a smooth mixture in which you need to fold dry ingredients using a spatula. Don't forget to add CHOPPED PEANUTS which makes these cookies so crunchy. The dough will be slightly sticky so place it in the fridge for 1 hour.
For shaping cookies we just scoop the dough, roll into balls then press fork on the top to get criss-cross patters. Bake cookies in the oven for 10 minutes or until they start to become golden.
These peanut butter cookies keeps well in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
