Ingredients

  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
    Baking
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
    Baking
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
    Baking
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
    Baking
  • 1 large egg
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy

    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • 1 cup peanut butter
    Nut butters, Jams, and Honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
    Spices and Seasonings
  • ¾ cup sugar
    Baking
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Baking
  • White sugar, for sprinkling
    Baking

Steps

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.In a large bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add both sugars and beat until smooth.
  • Add the egg and beat until completely combined. Beat in the milk and vanilla extract.With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture. Once it’s mostly combined, turn the mixer up to medium speed and beat until cohesive.
  • Place about ¼ cup of table sugar in a shallow bowl or plate.
  • Roll tablespoons of dough into sugar then place on a parchment lined baking sheet. There’s no need to criss cross these with a fork as they spread just fine on their own.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just set. The cookie will be done before it’s brown so don’t be afraid to take it out, even if they look a little underbaked. Allow to set up on the cookie sheet for a few minutes then remove and cool completely. This makes a pretty small cookie, so if you want big, bakery style cookies you’ll want a couple Tablespoons of dough and an increased baking time.
