Recipe Ingredients for Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup canola oil
2/3 cup peanut butter
12 tbsp unsalted butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 1/2 tsp vanilla

Recipe Directions for Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Grase cookie sheets.

  3. Whisk first four ingredients thoroughly.

  4. Beat next five ingredients on medium speed until well blended.

  5. Add last three ingredients and beat until well combined.

  6. Stir flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture until well blended and smooth. Let the dough stand for about 5 minutes to firm slightly. Pull off pieces of the dough and roll between your palms into generous 1-inch balls. Space about the tines of a fork, form a crosshatch pattern and press each ball into a 1 1/2-inch round. Bake 1 sheet at a time, until the cookies are just tinged with brown at the edges, 9 to 12 minutes; rotate the sheet halfway through baking for even browning. Remove the sheet to a rack and let stand until the cookies firm slightly. Transfer the cookies to racks to cool.
