Peanut Butter Cookies

Read Time:1 Minute, 29 Second
I know, these cookies have nothing to do with Japan –  just need a remembrance of home. Peanut butter is not very popular in here, in fact, it is hard to find in supermarkets. There is something called ‘peanuts cream’ here, but it is mostly butter/shortening and some peanuts.  I have never seen peanut butter cookies in the store so I need to make my own.
Got Milk?

Makes about 40 cookies

Ingredients:

312 grams flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

200 grams peanut butter

150 grams butter

75 grams granular sugar

75 grams brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt.

2. Soften the butter with a whisk and add in the eggs. sugar, peanut butter & vanilla – one at a time. Add in the flour mixture – mix together with a spatula.

3. If you have time, let the dough rest in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

4. Use a spoon to divide dough into about 25 gram pieces. Roll into a ball first and then flatten with a fork to make a nice design.

5. Bake at 170 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes.

These cookies don’t spread too much so no need to worry. They puff up very nicely during baking.
