If your a peanut butter lover, than these are totally the right cookies for you! To he honest, I think the cookies are just an excuse to have pure peanut butter. Because it taste just as if your licking peanut butter from the spoon; But you don't want to just say, "I want peanut butter." No, you dress it up in the form of a cookie!
I decided to make these to send to a friend of mine, along with other cookies, so that he could have some. I was already sending my Chocodoodles and my Chocolate Chunk and Dried Cherry Oatmeal Cookies, and I wanted to add something else to the batch of cookies. I already have chocolate, as well as oatmeal, so, why not peanut butter?
My whole objective with these cookies were to make them taste as peanut butter-y as possible. Which, these defiantly defined pure peanut butter very well. The ones I had in sent to work and friends, they were devoured in 1 second flat! It was well loved. This recipe is very simple. And it's much better than just have peanut butter on a spoon!
1 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. In a large bowl, beat together sugar and peanut butter. Slowly add flour and mix until thoroughly combined.
3. Using your hands, roll about a tablespoons of dough together into a ball. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and press slightly to flatten.
4. Bake 8 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly golden. Allow to cool on the sheet for about 5 minutes then carefully remove to wire racks to continue to cool. It is best to allow them to cool completely before eating, they "set" while they cool.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
