Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Chewy peanut butter cookies are peanut butter cookies with a rich, buttery, soft and chewy texture. These homemade peanut butter cookies are topped with sprinkle of sugar.

Preheat the oven to 350 F (177 C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 1:  

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together until well combined.

Step 2:  

In another large bowl, cream the butter, light brown sugar and granulated sugar on medium speed for 1 - 2 minutes, until well combined.

Step 3:  

On low, mix in the egg, egg yolk, vanilla extract and creamy peanut butter until well combined.

Step 4:  

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet just combined. The dough will be very soft. As long as it holds a scooped peanut butter cookie dough ball shape, the dough is ready to bake. If not, transfer the dough to chill in the fridge for 20 - 30 minutes.

Step 5:  

Scoop about 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of soft peanut butter cookie dough onto a lined baking sheet . Place about 8 balls of pb cookie dough on the baking sheet about 2 - 3 inches apart. Top with a pinch of granulated sugar.

Step 6:  

Bake the chewy old fashioned peanut butter cookies for 10 - 12 minutes. The edges will be set and lightly golden brown. Remove the cookies from the oven onto a cooling rack or stove top for 3 - 5 minutes.
