Peanut Butter Cookies

peanut butter cookies

Haircut day means baking cookies for the little guy’s “stylist”. I really only ever tried making the 1 cup each sugar/peanut butter plus egg version from childhood. Maybe I tried once or twice through the years with a random recipe, but those were dry and crumbly.
I wanted to use my standard dough as a base and hopefully get something tasty. I’m always trying to think of new flavors, but this mainstream fave turned out great! Will add it to my list.

Peanut Butter Cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • 1¼ cup flour
  • 2 TB smooth natural peanut butter
  • 1 - 12 oz bag peanut butter chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 365.

I think the reason these worked was the very small amount of peanut butter in the actual dough. Peanut butter, especially the “natural” varieties can be very drying. The chips were a nice way to pack in lots of flavor and maintain some moisture.

*Although these were a good texture I think I’ll add even less PB to the actual dough next time.
