Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
Wow! I was craving peanut butter cookies and looked this up. I went through many of the reviews/comments and adapted the recipe accordingly. I've just eaten five. (Oh-oh!) These are hands-down as good as any expensive cookie at a coffeehouse but fresher! I added 1/4 cup of flour and probably a little more than 1/2 cup of peanut butter. I used Trader Joe's Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter with Sea Salt. I used salted butter which was what I had on hand--so I didn't add any salt. I used 1 and 1/2 cups of packed brown sugar and half a cup of white sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla. I also added slightly chopped peanuts. I chilled the very heavy dough for one hour and baked just four cookies at first to test them. I made balls closer to 2 inches, rolled them in granulated sugar (I had never tried this before), flattened them slightly with the criss-cross of a fork, and baked them for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. I moved them after about two minutes from the baking sheet to a plate to cool. They are absolutely perfect. Thanks for this recipe and to everyone who added advice and experience.
