Classic Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup peanut butter, crunchy
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Line up a baking sheet(s) with parchment paper.
Beat in egg, scraping down sides to mix well. Beat in vanilla.
Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in peanuts, if using, until evenly distributed.
Scoop out and roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place dough at least 2 inches apart on baking sheet(s).
Dip the flat base of a glass in flour and gently press on each ball to flatten cookie to a little thicker than 1/4 inch. Then, dip the tines of a fork in flour and press gently into centre of cookie.
Press again at a different angle to form a cross pattern.
Bake in oven for 9 to 11 minutes. Remove from oven.
Leave on baking sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
