Lynn demonstrates how to make a simple Peanut Butter Cookies. These are great for an afternoon snack or as a simple dessert. From Saveur.com.
Sift flour and baking soda together in a medium bowl and set aside. Put the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and salt in a bowl and beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy but not fluffy, about 1 minute. Add the peanut butter, egg and vanilla and beat until just smooth, about 30 seconds. Stir in the reserved flour with a wooden spoon until just combined. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 12.
Preheat oven to 325°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using a small ice cream scoop to measure out cookies in small balls. Place on the cookie sheets about 2-1/2" apart. Use tines of fork to flatten balls to a thickness of about ½" and to make a grid pattern on top. Bake until golden brown about 15 minutes.
