Holiday Peanut Butter & Peppermint Cookies
Be Santa's hero! We're sure the jolly old elf will be very happy if you leave homemade Peanut Butter & Peppermint Cookies along with a glass of Betsy's almond milk. They are really good so make some extras for family and friends.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup Betsy’s Best Gourmet Peanut Butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 4 cups all-purpose flour or gluten free flour blend
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup peppermint chips
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar for coating
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine the butter, Betsy’s Best, sugar, and brown sugar together in a bowl and mix with a mixer until combined and creamy. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Set aside.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda and salt together. Add to peanut butter mixture in mixing bowl and stir until completely combined. Add the peppermint chips.
Roll the dough into 1” balls and in a separate bowl with the sugar, roll dough to coat. Place balls on a non-stick cookie sheet and using the bottom of a glass, flatten each ball.
Bake for 8-9 minutes. These cookies will remain soft and be careful not to over cook them. Remove from oven and move to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 24 cookies
