I have cookbooks and notebooks of saved recipes, but this recipe caught my eye recently in the magazine section of the Sunday paper because of the 1-2-3Bake title. It was written by Dorie Greenspan and said "A great snack for after work or after midnight." Well, I must say I'm glad I tried it.
2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup premium peanut butter(not natural)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup(packed) brown sugar
2 large eggs
More sugar, for rolling
- Whisk together the flour, soda, powder, and salt. Beat the butter, peanut butter, and both sugars for 2 minutes. One by one, add eggs; beat 2 minutes. Gently blend in dry ingredients.
- Divide in half, wrap, and chill overnight. Shape scant tablespoons of dough into balls, roll in sugar, and place 2 inches apart on lined baking sheets. Press with fork tines.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes, until golden. Let rest for 2 minutes; transfer to racks to cool.
