The Best Peanut Butter Cookies are chewy, soft, slightly crumbly with lots of peanut butter! Ohhhh how I love peanut butter!
I browsed around for a good peanut butter recipe and stumbled upon this one here. I read the reviews and people said they fell apart and were slightly salty. Uhm, hello dream cookie. I recommend using unsalted butter with a teaspoon of salt or salted butter without the added salt. One or the other. I love salt but you don’t need to overpower your cookies.
Creamy peanut butter was used today for The Best Peanut Butter Cookies but you can easily swap for crunchy and it will be delicious. I always try to give a tip for recipes but this is really simple. Mix all your ingredients besides the flour together well. Next, add the flour and mix another minute. Bake them. Easy. Make sure that your butter is softened and your egg is at room temperature before starting the cookie dough and they should bake up perfectly after a 20 minute rest in the refrigerator.
Let’s make bake cookies!
