Everyone who knows my husband, knows he LOVES peanut butter. He loves it so much, he even puts it in his cereal. I’ve tried it, it’s good, but I don’t love peanut butter as much as he does. This cookie is perfect for him! They taste amazing, are so easy to make, and are super chewy! I just inhaled 3. If you need a weekend dessert, here it is…
What you will need:
1 cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup granulated sugar for rolling
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon for rolling
To make the dough:
In a large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), mix the first 6 ingredients until well combined. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Combine the last 2 ingredients in a shallow bowl or dish. Remove the dough from the fridge (duh). ( I can’t believe I just said duh, but I realized I do say it quite often.) Using a small spoon, form dough into balls and roll them around in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Using the tines of a fork, pressing down slightly, create a crisscross pattern on the tops of each cookie.
