How Do You Make Peanut Butter Cookies?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Place butter into a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Melt and let bubble until brown bits form at bottom of pan and butter turns a golden brown color. Takes 5-8 minutes generally. Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes before using in recipe. You can stick in the freezer for 5 minutes to cool quickly.
  3. Place brown butter and sugar into a stand mixer, beating until combined. Add egg, vanilla and peanut butter until combined. Slowly add flour, salt, baking soda and chocolate chunks mixing on low until combined. With a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet 1 inch apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until baked through. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Serve warm or room temperature.

Baking with chocolate chunks is so much fun. I get my bar of chocolate from Trader Joe’s, but use whatever you can find.

How To Brown Butter

  1. Place butter in small saucepan over medium-low heat. Swirl and melt completely. Butter will boil. Continue to swirl and cook until butter turns golden brown and brown bits start forming on bottom of pan. Once butter has a nutty scent and is deep golden brown, remove from heat and transfer to a heat proof bowl. Make sure you spoon out all little black bits from the saucepan. Let brown butter cool at least 15 minutes before using in a cookie recipe.
