Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookie
When it comes to baking I prefer cookies than cakes. Because they are easy to make whereas my cakes fails poorly. (not always, but most of the time!) Another reason for my love to cookie baking is my little one. She loves my cookies or that is what she tells me. .I don't think a two and a half year old can simply lie just to make me happy..
My first cookies experiment was peanut butter cookies and that is my favorite. Here goes the recipe I used.
Butter - 1 cup ( in room temperature)
Peanut butter - 1 cup (smooth or crunchy)
Sugar - 1 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1 tsp
salt - a pinch
All purpose flour - 2 cups
Beat butter and sugar until it becomes smooth and fluffy
Add peanut butter, mix it well.
Add egg, vanilla essence , Mix well
Add baking soda and salt to All purpose flour . Add the flour mixture to butter and mix well.
Keep the cookies dough in fridge for half an hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Place small balls of cookie dough in a baking sheet. Press with fork to flatten the cookie dough.Sprinkle some sugar on top if needed
Bake it for 15 minutes. Crunchy peanut butter cookie is ready.
I used the crunchy peanut butter because I love biting small pieces of peanuts while having cookie. You can also add some peanuts while making the dough for extra crunch
