The BEST Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

I love to bake. Especially cookies. I almost love eating cookies as much as I love baking them. It just so happens that today is National Peanut Butter Cookie Day. To celebrate, I decided to share with you my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. It is adapted from Alaska From Scratch, who adapted it from yet another website. Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever!

When I went to start making the cookies, I realized that I was completely out of milk. I didn’t feel like waiting for my mom to get home with the groceries, so I ran up to McDonalds. It took forever! Good thing the cookies are worth it.

Last time I used sugar, it was when I was making something with my niece Ella. She decided to lick the sugar right from the bowl. Unfortunately, no bowl licking niece to help me today.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Either line cookie sheets with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.

In a big bowl, mix butter and sugars. Try to mix really well. About three minutes if you are using a mixer, five if by hand.

Add in peanut butter, mix well.

Mix in egg, milk, and vanilla. Don’t over stir, or else you will incorporate too much air into the egg.

Finally, add in the flour mixture. It shouldn’t be very running. If it is, add more flour.

Roll balls, about a half inch. In a small bowl, pour some sugar in for covering the balls. Roll dough balls in the sugar until they are covered.

Place balls on a cookie sheet, making sure to leave a bit of room as they spread.

Bake for about 11 minutes. They will look like of underdone. Let them sit on the pan for two minutes before removing them to a cooling rack.

Enjoy!

  1. These sound amazing! I wonder how much more they would flatten using real butter instead of margarine? Have you tried it?
