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 (I used Skippy Super Chunk)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips
For sprinkling: 1 tablespoon sugar, regular or superfine
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 and chocolate chips. Place sprinkling sugar — the remaining tablespoon — 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 crisss-cross pattern, but do not overly flatten cookies. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies may appear to be underdone, but they are not.
Cool the cookies on the sheets for several minutes, as I found it took a while for them to completely set and not break apart from being moist and fragile.
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Adopted From Bonne Vivante
1 cup chunky peanut butter 1 cup sugar (1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar) 1 egg 1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet and set aside.
In a mixer combine all ingredients and beat. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and create a cris-cross pattern with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Then remove from oven and press a reese's cup into the center. Put back into oven for 2 minutes to let the cups slightly melt.
Remove and cool. Let them set for a while, because the lack of flour makes them more delicate and more likely to break during transportation.
