Chewy Cinnamon Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

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.

Bake for 8 to 9 minutes. Sprinkle with any remaining cinnamon sugar when they are still hot. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
