I made this recipe when I was craving peanut butter cookies. Everyone who tried them loved them because they were so soft! I made mine tiny bite size cookies and the recipe made a bunch.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Combine flour and baking soda in a small bowl.
- In a separate bowl, melt 1/2 cup butter in microwave.
- Add 1/3 cup sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar to the melted butter and cream all together.
- Add the other 1/2 cup butter to your prepared butter/sugar combo and mix.
- Add rest of sugar, brown sugar, and the peanut butter. Cream well.
- Add egg whites and vanilla to the butter and sugar mixture and combine once more.
- Gradually add flour mixture to your wet mix about 1/3 cup at a time until all the flour is combined.
- Roll dough into round balls of any size and place on baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
- Let cool on baking sheet for 1-2 minutes and then remove to a cooled surface. ENJOY!
Chose this recipe because of the chef's bio, which was terrific; great and inspiring to see younger generation so happy with the simpler things in life. Cookies were delicious; my 4 yr old loved them. She helped to make them, recipe was simple enough. Followed recipe but subbed all organic ingredients on the list and did cut the sugar back just a bit and used turbinado sugar, since she would be eating a lot of them. We will make these again...nice texture; great flavor. Best wishes to you and your endeavors!
The cookie is delicious, i dobled the recipe, and added 1/3 cup more of peanutbutter
Made for PAC Spring 07! These were very soft and good. Since I only have one cookie sheet, I used my non-stick griddle as a stand in for the second pan. It was interesting to me that the cookies on the griddle were not only soft, but had a nice chewy denser bottom. They were also on the lower rack and that may have had something to do with it. I rolled up balls that were about 1 inch around and they made cookies that were about 2 inches around. I thought they would spread out of control so I only put 20 to a sheet....they did not spread as much as you would think with this much butter in a recipe. I did not grease my sheets because the cookies were plenty oily enough not to stick. I made 2/3 of the recipe last night and saved some to make with my youngest daughter today (fun fun) so I'm guessing this batch will make about 50 2 inch cookies. These are a little too soft when warm, but so good! Thanks, Christine!
