Peanut Butter Cookies

These Peanut Butter Cookies are a family favorite that I remember making many, many times growing up.  Yum!  I can still remember the smell of warm peanut butter filling the house and picture the counter full of cooling Peanut Butter Cookies.  These are seriously the best peanut butter cookies I have ever tasted.  I prefer these cookies to be soft and chewy, but they can also be cooked a little longer for a crunchier Peanut Butter Cookie.  Chewy or crunchy, they are still delicious!

 

 

Ingredients:
1 ¼ Cups Flour
¾ teaspoon Baking Soda
¼ teaspoon Salt
½ Cup Butter
1 Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
½ Cup Sugar
½ Cup Brown Sugar
1 Egg
½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract

 

 

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt together in a bowl and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla.  Slowly add in flour mixture and mix until fully incorporated.

Form dough into balls, place on a greased baking sheet and smash down with a fork twice to make an X.

For crunchy cookies bake until golden brown, about 9 minutes.  For soft cookies bake 5 minutes.  Let cool on baking sheets for a couple minutes before removing.

 

 

 

 

 

Yield: about 30 cookies

OK, I couldn’t stop taking pictures of these amazingly delicious Peanut Butter Cookies!  I think I might go make more!

Delish Flourless Oatmeal Cookies

 

I totally love these flourless cookies!  I didn’t even know you could make flourless cookies until recently…and thanks to my gluten free friend!  You wouldn’t even know these are flourless just by eating them.  Make sure to use gluten free oats if you are needing these to be gluten free.

 

Ingredients:
3/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Butter
1 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Peanut Butter
3 Cups Rolled Oats
3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips (mini or regular size)
1/2 Cup Walnuts, chopped

 

Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease two cookie sheets.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the sugar, brown sugar and butter.  Mix in the baking soda, eggs and vanilla until fully incorporated.  Mix in the peanut butter.  Using the stir speed, stir in the oats, chocolate chips and walnuts.

Use a cookie scoop (or rounded Tablespoon) to place on the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.  Bake until lightly golden and delicious, about 10-12 minutes.  Leave on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

 

Yield: about 48 cookies depending on size
