BLESS THIS MESS
These are the best peanut butter cookies I've ever eaten! This easy recipe makes dense, soft and perfectly chewy peanut butter cookies that you'll make over and over again.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with a baking mat or parchment paper.
In a medium bowl (a hand mixer works well for this too), add the butter and peanut butter and beat to combine well.
Add the brown sugar and the granulated sugar and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and mix to combine.
Add the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix together until well combined. Place the extra 3 tablespoons or granulated or sparkling sugar in a small bowl.
Prepare balls of dough and place the on the baking sheet, repeat with remaining dough, leaving 2 inches between each cookie. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Gently press the the cookies down with the bottom of a glass cup. Let the cookies rest for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to finish cooling on a wire wrack.
