I love how simple peanut butter cookies are and when the cookie jar is empty at our house these are what they ask for. Simple honest peanut butter cookies and when your youngest comes home from a full day of college classes and ask if you have time to make them with him. You drop everything and savor the moments that you know you only get every so often. Don’t you just love it! I love this kid he’s so awesome!
And when his older brother (that he has to point out on a regular basis is shorter) comes in an is happy to see we made cookies and grabs a handful too!
You can’t help but feel blessed to have two great young men to call your sons. Love you guys!! ((XOXO))
PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
Yield: 18-20 cookies with a 2 Tablespoon scoop
1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup palm sugar or sugar in the raw
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 350º F.
In a large bowl or mixer beat peanut butter, baking soda, salt and sugar together.
Once combined, beat in egg and vanilla extract and mix until fully incorporated.
Using a tablespoon or just your hands, form dough into equal-sized balls and place on baking sheet. Note: you can roll cookies in sugar if you prefer they be coated before baking.
Use the tines of a fork to imprint a criss-cross shape on each cookie, then place in oven.
Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom, but not fully set. (They will continue to set once out of the oven.)
Remove from oven and let cool 15 minutes.
Take time to do what makes your soul happy!
