This is the best peanut butter cookies recipe ever. A delicious soft-baked peanut butter cookie that is loaded with peanut butter flavor.
Preheat oven to 350℉ Spray cooking sheet with cooking spray of line with sheet liner.
In a large mixing bowl cream together the room temperature butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until all is combined. This should be smooth and creamy. I like to use my stand mixer but a hand mixer will work for this as well.
Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until both are well combined.
In another mixing bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add this to the butter mixture and mix until all is combined.
Using your cookie scoop, scoop out the dough then roll it into a perfect ball. Roll the dough balls into the tablespoon of sugar. Place onto the cookie sheet. Press down with your hand to flatten the balls a bit. Then make the criss-cross marks with a fork.
Bake in the preheated 350℉ oven for 10-11 minutes or until done. Time may vary depending on oven. Let cool on baking sheet wire rack for a few and then enjoy.
