I had come across this recipe long time ago,today I tried my hand at making fresh peanut butter and next thing on my list had to be these cookies,easy to make yummy recipe.I have used homemade peanut butter, you can use the one which is easily  available in market, smooth or crunchy any variant can be used.If desired you can add roasted peanut pieces to make the cookie crunchy.So here goes the recipe….

Ingredients :

1 & 1/4 cups All purpose flour (Maida)

1/2 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp Baking soda

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 cup, Butter soften at room temperature.

1/2 cup Granulated white sugar

1/2 cup Light brown sugar

1/2 cup Peanut Butter

1/4 cup Milk

Method :

Preheat the oven at 190 degree C for at least 10 minutes.

Line two baking trays with parchment paper.

Take all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Mix it well so everything get incorporated. Keep it aside until needed.

Take soften butter in a large bowl.

Whisk it till it gets smooth and creamy using hand mixer or beater.

Add white sugar and light brown sugar.

Again beat it till gets smooth, creamy and fluffy.Now add peanut butter,beat it till mixed well.

Add milk and beat,now add flour mixture.
Beat it just until incorporated. Do not over mix it.
If the dough is too soft to form a ball,keep it in refrigerator for 20-25 minutes.

Now make tablespoon size balls from the dough and arrange them on prepared cookie sheet. Place them about 1 ½ -2 inches apart from each other. because they will spread a little as they bake.

Bake them in preheated oven for 13-15 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned around the edges. Let it cool in the cookie sheet for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes remove cookies to the cooling rack and let them cool completely.

Store in an air tight container  and serve with milk.

Tip:Baking time may vary a little bit depending on the size of the cookie.

Happy Cooking !!!
