    veg head 4-ever's Note:

    These cookies have been loved by the most anti-peanut butter cookie people. The trick is twice as much peanut butter as your average-joe cookie recipe, and some leavening changes to help turn out a thick, chewy cookie. And the peanut butter matters... I use Adams brand natural organic peanut butter (you can pour out some of the oil if you want), or you can make your own at a health food store like Wild Oats or Whole Foods.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 18



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
    2. 2
      Beat together the butter, peanut butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla, then egg and egg yolk. Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
    3. 3
      Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, or about 2 hours.Take over-filled tablespoonfuls of dough and drop onto greased/floured cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Lightly press down each cookie. Using a dinner fork dipped in cold water, lightly press cookies, flattening and forming a criss-cross pattern on each cookie. They won't flatten much more in baking so they should already look cookie-ish.
    4. 4
      Bake at 375° until golden brown, or about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for a minute; transfer to rack to cool completely.
    5. 5
      Makes about 1 1/2 dozen big peanut butter cookies.

      These cookies were very good...but I wouldn't call them the 'best' I've ever eaten. I don't know why the recipe said to chill the dough. I found the dough too stiff after chilling and I had to slice mine from the roll. Next time I will skip the chilling and just drop them on the cookie sheet. Made for Spring PAC 2010

      These were a very, very nice cookie! I've never made Peanut Butter cookies with natural peanut butter and what a difference! You can REALLY taste the peanut flavour in them. Whipped these up in minutes; added 1/4 cup extra flour to it so it needed NO 2 hours to chill. Dough handled perfectly and were done at the 12 minute mark. Shared them with a neighbor who agreed with the title: BEST peanut butter cookies, EVER!

      These are the best peanut butter cookies I have ever tasted! The flavor of the Adam's peanut butter gives them a really natural taste, and they're not super sweet but they're still chewy. This is because with regular peanut butter they remove the oil and replace it with preservatives, less healthy oils, chemicals, and icing sugar. These cookies make all other home made cookies taste like store bought!
