Peanut butter – half cup
Baking soda – half teaspoon
Sugar – half cup
Egg – one
Unsalted butter – half cup
Baking powder – half teaspoon
Vanilla extract – one teaspoon
All purpose flour – one and a half cup
Dark brown sugar – half cup
Take a bowl and to this add half cup peanut butter and half cup unsalted butter. Mix them well with the help of an electric mixer or wooden spoon. Then add half cup sugar, half teaspoon baking soda and half teaspoon baking powder. Beat the entire mixture till it gets combined. Now add one teaspoon vanilla extract to this mixture along with one egg. Blend all the ingredients very well.
Now slowly add one and a half cup all purpose flour to this mixture and stir them well. Then the dough will become very thick and it will be difficult to work with this dough. So keep this dough in refrigerator for about one hour. This makes the dough soft and easy to work with. Preheat your oven at a temperature of 350 degrees.
Get the chilled dough and roll the dough in to balls of one inch size. Now spread a cookie sheet and grease it with butter. Place these balls on this cookies sheet at two inches apart. Now take a fork and apply butter on its tines. Use this to press the balls in to flat cookies. You can create perpendicular lines on the cookies with this fork. You can also immerse the buttered fork on granulated sugar before pressing the cookies and this allows some sugar to get stick on the cookies.
Now bake the cookies for about 10 minutes or till the edges of the cookies becomes brown. Then get the cookies back from the oven and allow it to cool and your cookie is ready to use.
