Step 1: Preparation

1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Dry Ingredients

Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl. Set aside.

Step 3: Wet Ingredients

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, on high speed, beat together the butter, granulated and brown sugars, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the peanut butter and mix until smooth.

Step 4: Combining Wet and Dry

Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Remove the bowl from the mixer, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and mis again a few times by hand.

Step 5: Baking Cookies

Roll 1-teaspoon portions of dough into 3/4-inch balls. Place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten slightly and imprint the traditional cross-hatch marks using the back of a fork or a meat mallet. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

    is there any change when baking cookies at a high altitude? For brownies, I need to increase the flour and baking time.

    Did you do some with chocolate and some without? Personally I think the only thing that makes peanut butter cookies better is the addition of chocolate.

    I usually do half plain and half with chocolate chip cause some of the people eating them don't like the chocolate. However, I too think the chocolate adds perfect flavor.
