Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut Butter Cookies are for sure my SECOND favorite cookie, (chocolate chip being the first) so adding a peanut butter cookie to my recipes rolodex was a must.
These soft, chewy, peanut buttery, sweet, treats are sure to be a hit in your house and better yet someone else’s. Not only do I love baking cookies at home but I love that cookies are such a fun and cute gift to give.
Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
In fact, this recipe took some tries and by some I mean 5! Who knew 5th time would be the charm, and that they would also technically end up being…
No eggs, no butter, no dairy, these cookies are also perfect for everyone to enjoy.
1 cup peanut butter – smooth and creamy (skip or jiffy)
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup almond milk
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Step 1: Preheat your oven 350 degrees
Step 2: In a medium sized mixing bowl add your peanut butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Using a hand mixer, mix together until smooth.
Step 3: Add your almond milk, vanilla and maple syrup. Then mix again until combined.
Step 4: In a separate bowl sift together your dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt.
Step 5: Slowly add your dry ingredients to the cookie batter and mix until combined. The batter will look a little crumble and that’s ok.
Step 6: Using your hands, grab some dough and roll it into a ball. After placing all the cookies on the cookie sheet, take a fork, dip it into the powdered sugar and then press down into your cookies making a criss cross pattern. This gets you that signature old fashion peanut butter cookie.
Step 7: Bake for 8 minutes. Once you take the cookies out of the oven slam the pan on the counter twice. This allows the cookie to settle.
Step 8: Let the cookies cool for 3 minutes then take a sifter and sprinkle over some powdered sugar.
Step 9: ENJOY!!
I hope you guys make, try, and enjoy these cookies. And if you make them, would also love to know how you like them.
