Creamy Peanut Butter Cookies

9 comments

For all those peanut butter lovers: this is a GREAT recipe! And for those who are not so excited about it... you should really give it a try. Seriously, you won't regret it!

This is a really easy recipe... and the results? Nothing special, just a creamy, soft and decadent cookie. I'm already getting hungry just thinking of it.


To start, mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Nothing too complicated, you don't even need the mixer for this step.

Continue by adding the wet ingredients and with the electric mixer, mix for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until you reach a moist but not sticky consistency. You can also finish it with your hands, like I did (you can even notice my fingerprints haha).


What else can I say? Oh... so creamy! I suggest to go always with the creamy peanut butter version, rather than the crunchy. The creamy one guarantees you a smooth texture.


Usually peanut butter cookies have a typical criss-cross decoration, but sometimes when it's not strongly marked, after the cookies bake, the marks erase. This is why I prefer to make some cuts with a knife, so I make sure the marks will remain after cooked.


Just look at these cookies... aren't you already hungry?


Oh... and here's my final 'kick'. Just drizzle some luscious melted chocolate on top... you know, just for that 'little extra' flavor. You can't imagine how good these ones are... 



CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-12 minutes
Servings: 18 good size cookies

Ingredients

1/2 cup  butter softened
1 cup  creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups  flour
1/2 cup  refined sugar
1/2 cup  brown sugar
1  egg
1 tbs  vanilla extract
1 tsp  baking soda
1 tsp  baking powder
1 tsp  salt
*Semi-sweet chocolate for topping (optional)


Preparation

1. In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and stir.
2. With the electric mixer, soften butter until smooth. Add the peanut butter, egg and vanilla extract. Start slowly incorporating the dry ingredients mix. Mix for 3 to 5 minutes, until dough it's moist but not too sticky. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
3. With your hands, form 2 tbs size dough balls and place on baking sheet. With a knife, make criss-crossed marks on top of the dough balls. 
4. Bake at 180 Cº for about 10 to 12 minutes. If you want a crunchier consistency, bake for 2 to 3 minutes more.
5. In a saucepan on medium-low heat, melt 1 tsp of butter and start incorporating the chocolate chunks. Melt and stir until smooth. With a small spoon, drizzle melted chocolate on top of chilled cookies.
6. Enjoy!
