Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies that taste like roasted peanuts and have slightly crunchy exterior thanks to being rolled in sugar before baking. Easy cookies that will quickly become your favorite.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop 1.5 tablespoon size balls of dough, roll in your hands in balls and roll in sugar. Place on baking sheet, about 2" apart, and bake for 8 to 9 minutes. Cool on sheet for 3 to 5 minutes, then remove onto a cooling rack.
To properly measure flour, fluff the flour in the container you store it in. I do it with a fork or a whisk. Next, scoop flour with a spoon into the measuring cup. Level the top off and place in a mixing bowl. Repeat until you get the needed amount.
Do not use unbleached flour in this recipe. It will affect the final result, the cookies will spread and won't look like the ones on my photos.
You can add chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the dough before chilling or place a Hershey Kiss candy on each cookie after baking.
