Peanut Butter Bite Size Cookies

Published August 3, 2012 by thepinkgourmet

I think I have found my new favorite Peanut Butter Cookie recipe.  If you are a peanut butter lover then these are the cookies for you…. These cookies melt in your mouth and are so soft!!!!  I was able to make these in the morning before meeting a friend for lunch!  🙂

Peanut Butter Bite Size Cookies
Source
Yields about 3 dozen
Ingredients:
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a cookie dish. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt, set aside. In the mixing bowl of an electric mixer, mix together butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in egg and vanilla. Slowly add dry ingredients. Scoop out 1 even tablespoon of dough at a time and roll into a small ball. Set dough balls on greased baking sheet and bake 7 – 9 minutes.
                                  
Put the brown sugar, granulated sugar and softened butter into a mixing bowl.  Then add the peanut butter.
                                   
In a small bowl put the flour, baking soda and salt.  Then get your mixer out. No need for a stand mixer, a hand mixer will work just fine.
                                  
Now you want to mix up the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, & brown sugar until it is light and fluffy.
Next you want to add the egg and vanilla.  Make sure the egg is room temperature.
This is what it looks like after you have added the dry ingredients.  Now you are ready to put them on the cookie sheet.
       
Here are a couple of views of the cookie dough after you scoop it out of the bowl, and then roll them into small balls. It says to put them on a greased cookie sheet but I used parchment paper on my cookie sheets. (Parchment paper helps extend the life of your cookie sheets.)
This is what they look like when they first come out of the oven.  Make sure you cool them completely on the cookie sheets or they will fall apart. I found this out the hard way.  Of course I had to eat the one that fell apart……
When they are cool put them on a pretty plate and get ready for them to disappear.  I can promise you that they will not be around for long!   What else can I say but Bon Appetit!  I will definitely be making these cookies again.  Next time I make these I think I will drizzle melted chocolate over them…… Think how good that would be.
I give this recipe out of 4……
