A blog about everything even cooking

peanut butter cookies*

Okay so I have been wanting to type up this recipe for the longest time and I finally have free time today..so much free time that I plan on dying my hair, relaxing with a mud mask, making these cookies for my broken brother 🙂 and watching an awesome movie…maybe Narnia? I added my own twist to this recipe one night when my brother and his friends wanted  peanut butter cookies..now I use to suck at making peanut butter cookies but this recipe is awesome it works..your cookies will be amazing!.

For this recipe you need the following:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cactus honey powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • extra sugar 🙂

In a large bowl start by beating the butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds (do it..30 seconds..not 20..30 🙂 ). Add the sugar, brown sugar, cactus honey powder, honey, baking soda and baking powder. Beat till combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the egg and vanilla till combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer..stir in the rest. Shape the dough in to 1 inch balls ( I use a melon baller)(don’t make them any bigger because then they wont be as good) roll in additional sugar to coat and place on an ungreased cookie sheet…flatten with fork making the crisscross marks. Bake the cookies at 375 for about 8 minutes. Let the cookies cool a minute on the sheet before you transfer them to a wire rack.

this dough is so easy to work with you'll love it!

I could eat a million

I hope you try this recipe and love it!

Have an awesome weekend!!

*I need an idea for a name for my peanut butter cookies..it would be awesome if some how the name could involve mumford and sons because on the piece of paper that had this recipe written down was also a song by them that I didnt want to forget.

    They look yummy! I love peanut butter, and I snack daily on peanuts.
    Have you ever tried spreading peanut butter on bread and butter and then putting Marmite on top – it’s lush! (do you have Marmite over there – it’s a spread made from yeast?)
