These peanut butter brown sugar slice-and-bake cookies are the perfect treat to have on hand for whenever you have a sweet craving. The cookie dough will last for at least a month in the freezer, so all you have to do is slice it up and bake as many as you need.

Ingredients

all-purpose flour

2 cup(s)

Peanut Butter & Co. Pure peanut powder

cup(s)

table salt

1 tsp

unsalted butter

¾ cup(s), cold and cut into cubes

egg(s)

2 large

vanilla extract

1 tsp

packed light brown sugar

1 cup(s)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor pulse the flour, brown sugar, powdered peanut butter, and salt together until combined. Add the butter and pulse a few times until the butter is the size of peas. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs and vanilla extract. Add to the food processor and pulse until a crumbly dough forms.
  2. Dump out onto a clean surface and form into a ball. Divide in two and shape into two logs about 3 inches wide and 6 inches long. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for at least 2 hours and up to 1 month.
  3. When ready to bake cookies, preheat oven to 350°F. Slice cookie dough into 1/4-inch thick rounds and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper a few inches apart. Sprinkle with coarse sugar, if desired and bake until the bottoms just turn brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
