Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies

The source for today’s recipe is Organic Style magazine. Easy, fast, and tasty. Few ingredients make these cookies easy and quick to make. Full of flavor, peanut butter lovers, this recipe is a keeper! I always have warm baked cookies and piping hot chocolate for the kids when they come in from playing in the snow. Today it snowed!

Yields: 12 cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup natural crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup coarse brown-sugar crystals, for sprinkling
  1. Beat butter and light-brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy and light, about 3 minutes. Add egg and beat until light. Gradually beat in peanut butter until incorporated. Add half the flour; add the baking powder and salt. Beat on low speed until mixed. Add remaining flour and beat just long enough to incorporate. Cover tightly and refrigerate dough 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350F. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop up and level dough. Roll in palms to form a ball. Place balls of dough on an ungreased baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Using the back of a fork, press down on cookies in a crisscross pattern (dough should be 1/2 inch thick). Sprinkle tops with brown-sugar crystals. Bake 18-20 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to racks and let cool completely.
