My Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies


1 stick unsalted butter, softened

1 cup dark brown sugar, packed

3/4 cup peanut butter

1 cup bread flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 350. Line two baking sheets with either silpats or parchment paper.

Cream together the butter, brown sugar and peanut butter until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until just combined.

In another bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the wet ingredients and blend just until a dough forms.

Using a large spoon or an ice cream scoop, scoop out big balls of dough onto your prepared baking sheet --- about 3" apart. Press down gently with a wet fork on each cookie.

Bake for 15 minutes until edges are golden.
