Peanut Butter Cookies

For as much as I love peanut butter, I have never been a fan of peanut butter cookies.
But, this recipe for soft and chewy peanut butter cookies was a huge hit at a BBQ last weekend.
yield: ~28 cookies

½C salted butter, room temperature
½C brown sugar
¼C sugar
1 egg, room temperature
¾C creamy peanut butter 
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp baking soda
1 ¼C all-purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven in 350°.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars on medium speed.
  3. Mix in peanut butter, egg, and vanilla; scrape down sides as needed.
  4. Slowly mix in the baking soda and flour, until just mixed.
  5. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Roll about 1½ tablespoons of dough into a ball.
  7. Place onto an ungreased cookie sheet or silpat.
  8. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Cookies will be soft and may appear not fully cooked.
  9. Press fork down slightly on each cookie.
  10. Let cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
  11. Enjoy!
