My Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

When most people reference a recipe from the Magnolia Cookbook, they’re usually talking about the vanilla cupcake recipe.  I have a different favorite recipe from that cookbook, their peanut butter cookies. Now I love peanut butter, and therefore peanut butter cookies. If I had to pick an absolute favorite cookie it would be a toss up between these and the Reese’s chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips. What makes the Magnolia peanut butter cookies different from others? Peanut butter chips. Clearly, they make everything better.

I made these tonight, it was warm in the kitchen and thought ahead enough to really let the butter soften. I think that made all the difference because when I creamed the butter and the peanut butter, it was creamy bliss. Also, I used a scoop! The consistency in size made me very happy.

Perfect drops!

Peanut Butter Cookies
from the Magnolia Bakery

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter at room temperature
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon (for sprinkling) sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in the peanut butter chips. Place sprinkling sugar on a plate. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls into the sugar, then onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion. Using a fork, lightly indent with a crissscross pattern, but do not overly flatten cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies may appear to be underdone, but they are not.

Cool the cookies on the sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a rack to cool completely.
