10 Days of Christmas in July (Day 6) Weekend Baking #Cookies


I was looking for holiday baking recipes for today's post and I came across this intriguing idea. I love peanut butter cookies so why not peanut butter sugar cookies. I'm definitely going to make these during the upcoming holiday season. Yum!

Peanut Butter Sugar Cookies
24 cookies
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour, plus more if needed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
Directions:

    1. Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugar in a bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes or until the ingredients are blended. Scrape the bowl with a spatula.
    2. Add the eggs and vanilla. Continue to blend on high speed until the mixture is fully incorporated.
    3. Sift flour, salt, and baking powder.
    4. Add flour mixture to the mixer, and mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix, or the dough will toughen.
    5. Transfer dough to parchment paper, and refrigerate dough for 20 minutes.
    6. Remove dough from fridge, and sprinkle flour on a flat surface as well as on top of dough. Roll out the dough to 1/4-inch thick with a rolling pin, and cut out with the cookie cutters of your choice.
    7. Use a spatula to carefully transfer cookies to a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat, spaced at least 1 inch apart. If the dough becomes too warm and sticky, refrigerate the cutouts (on the baking sheet) for 10-20 minutes.
    8. Bake in a 350°F oven for 9-11 minutes, rotating the sheets halfway, until edges are very lightly browned.
    9. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool a few minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Let cool completely before icing.
