Peanut Peanut Butter Sandies

Just a recipe today. Back to normal ranting next week

Peanut Peanut Butter Sandies

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking power

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 sticks unsalted butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 cup peanut butter

1 tsp salt

2 T chopped nuts (i used the variety box and this optional if you don’t want nuts)

Raw sugar to sprinkle on top (I use sugar in the raw)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line your baking sheets with parchment paper or grease lightly

In a bowl mix flour, baking soda, and baking powder and set aside

Cream the butter for 5-7 minutes, add sugar and keep creaming for another minute 

While mixture is creaming, chop your nuts if you are using them

Add the egg, peanut butter, and salt. Stop mixer and scrape sides of bowl

Add dry ingredients to the butter and mix until it makes a firm dough

Roll the dough into a log and cut into 1 inch pieces (at this point you can keep in the shape you cut them, or you can roll them into balls if you like a more traditional shaped cookie)

Put each cookie on a parchment lined baking sheet and use a fork to make criss cross marks in each cookie

Sprinkle each cookie with a small bit of raw sugar and nuts if using

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown
