Recipe: Crunchy Peanut Butter CookiesPosted: June 29, 2011
I’m baaaack 🙂 Let’s hope I passed my last exam today (results should be in 3-4hours) and meanwhile enjoy this delicious post. I am super late with this one as I baked them for Father’s Day over a week ago.
The peanut butter is noticeable and cookies are shortbread but with a chewing inside. They are really easy to prepare but obviously take some time (for modelling and baking as you probably need to do it in shifts).
Makes about 36 cookies.
1/2 cup* sugar
1/2 cup* brown sugar
1/2 tsp** salt
115g peanut butter
1/2 tsp** vanilla extract
1 cup* flour
1 tsp** baking soda
Mix both sugars, salt, and both butters until creamy and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla extract and mix again. Add flour and baking soda and mix.
Dough is quite gunge. You may put it in the fridge for a little while. Model into balls (< walnuts size) with floured hands. Arrange them in large distance and flatten using fork.
Bake for about 7 minutes in a preheated 200ºC oven. Wait before pulling down as they are really soft and fregile. Let cool.
* 1 cup = 250ml
** 1 tsp = 5ml
