  • You can add chopped peanuts if you like; salted or unsalted –you decide
  • You can coat the cookies with a layer of smooth peanut butter and deep them halfway with dark chocolate

Method:

 

Preheat your oven to 176°C and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside

In a bowl put both kinds of sugar with butter and beat together for 3-4 minutes until they get thick and nice and pale and creamy. This makes a huge difference in your cookies

Add the egg and vanilla and keep stirring

Add the peanut butter and do same, stir until creamy

Add the salt and baking powder to flour, stir them good and put it to the batter. You have to put the flour spoon by spoon while mixing it, is really important and it will effect to the texture of your cookie

Give another stir with your spatula

Using a small ice-cream scoop or 2 spoons divide the batter on the cookie sheet, make sure to put them apart from each-other because they will spread as they bake

Flatten the cookies with your finger (gently)

Using a fork make a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until they are lightly golden around the edges

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then place them somewhere else, letting them to cool completely
