Peanut Butter Cookies are soft, chewy, satisfying, and did I say peanut buttery.... It's hard to find someone that doesn't love peanut butter and what better way to enjoy it than in a simple cookie. That's why I've always loved making them. These happen to be a little different from what I've made in the past, in the fact that they are made to be especially chewy. Chewy and peanut butter go good together so I said why not. Then I said, why not again and went above & beyond.. to turn them into chocolate covered peanut butter cookies so definitely try that as well... it's bliss.
Ingredients (makes about 18 cookies) :
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup butter (make sure it's soft before you mix it)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
In a large bowl or mixer combine all the ingredients. You can see the peanut butter in there somewhere. I swear it's underneath all those other necessary ingredients.
Time laspe of mixing perfection:
Finally after the mixing is done, look at the tempting peanut butter dough just sticking to the mixing spoon. Wait just a second, before I continue making these I better eat a piece....
I swear that is Chef Meg's girlie measuring spoon in the background.
Update and I usually don't do updates to my posts but this case warrants it. I couldn't resist having some more of these awesome cookies the day after they were made. I have to tell you that there is no denying that these are absolutely 100% the best peanut butter cookies ever! If you like peanut butter cookies or cookies period, I understand that this recipe might require more ingredients than usual for cookies but it makes them really awesome and worth it....
