King Sized Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter!

I needed a little something extra to bring into work tomorrow, along with my small batch of ganache-topped fudge brownies, so I thought peanut butter cookies would be a good option. I didn’t want to spend all day baking, so I opted to make only 8! And they are quite large. Instead of topping them with melted milk chocolate, I sprinkled them with sugar.

Reminders 1) spoon your flour from your flour container into your measuring cup, 2) chill the mounds of dough for a few hours before baking So the cookies don’t spread, 3) preheat your oven to 400 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so your oven cycles to the right temperature.

😋
  • Ingredients
  • 10 tbs butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Extra sugar

Directions – cream butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. I actually used my hands to completely make sure the dough was blended together. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each in sugar. Store in fridge for a few hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners, stagger cookies. Bake 10 to 13 minutes (there will be light golden patches on top and bottoms will be a light golden color). Cool completely and store in covered container.

I think Gracie had some of this cookie!

Remember to be kind. It honestly isn’t that hard. Cut people a break. We never know what is happening with other people. This is a hard time for everyone. We are all doing the best we can, each day. That includes being kind to yourself. You are loved and you matter. Wishing you peace, love and joy today. ❤
