I made these because my groshree store was giving the Nut-Trition away, free-fer-nuthin. I won't call it peanut butter because it has a whole lot of stuff other than peanuts and salt in it, but I figured it would be okay for cookies.
Planter's Nut-Trition Cookies
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 12oz jar of Planter's Nut-trition peanut spread
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ cup (packed) brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into medium bowl. In a large bowl, beat butter, peanut spread and vanilla until well blended. Beat in both sugars. Scrape down sides of bowl. Stir half of dry ingredients into mixture. Add eggs 1 at a time, stirring well after each addition. Mix in remaining dry ingredients.
Roll heaping tablespoonsful of dough into balls and arrange 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Using back of fork, flatten dough balls and form crosshatch design on tops. Bake cookies until dry on top and golden brown on bottom, about 14 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets 5 minutes then transfer to racks to cool completely.
