This is how I have made my peanut butter cookies for as long as I can remember. It's easy, it's fast, and it instantly satisfies a sweet tooth- especially for a peanut butter lover (like this gal right here!). And it's so easy to change. Too sweet for you? Remove the vanilla extract or add some sea salt on top. Want them plain? Remove the Hershey Kiss. Want a different topping? The world is your oyster, because this is a perfect base recipe.
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
°F, mix all of the ingredients together.
3. I set them about an inch apart on the pan. You can use a fork to flatten them and make a pattern, but I'm typically lazy on that step and just let them flatten naturally in the heat.
4. Let them bake for about 10 minutes or until golden at the sides. I let them rest about two minutes and then pop the candy into the center while the cookies are still warm and mushy. It'll set around the candy as it cools.
5. That's it. The hardest part about these are trying not to eat the whole batch.
