“Hubby’s Favorite” Peanut Butter Cookie

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hello everyone! This is my first recipe of August! How is everyone’s end of Summer going? I can’t wait for Fall season to start posting Pumpkin Recipes, so don’t forget to come back and check my next posts!

Let me tell you about this cookie… My husband (Steve)  gives me great ideas of different things to bake. One day he said: “Why don’t you make a Peanut Butter Cookie with a Maple Glaze”? I was like … mmm.. that might work… but I had a doubt about how to make this glaze… it had to be a glaze that kinda gets a bit hard so it is easy to eat and does’t make a mess, right? Oh well.. I gave it a try and the result was perfect.

If you are one of the people who asked me for the recipe in Facebook, please leave me a message! I would like to know who is visiting my blog! Thanks!!

Makes about 2 dozen cookies

Peanut Butter Cookie

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup  packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup  creamy peanut butter ( I used the one from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1  large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups  all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup (I love the Trader Joe’s one)
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1¼ cup SIFTED  powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan heat butter and maple syrup together until butter is melted and ingredients are combined.
  2. Stir in maple extract.
  3. Whisk in powdered sugar ⅓ cup at a time until full incorporated. Add milk one teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is achieved ( I don’t like  runny glaze so watch out how much milk you use)
  4. Dip cooled cookies in glaze and return to cooling rack.
  5. Let glaze set for at least an hour and then serve.

 Notes:

-If you are a bacon lover, you can sprinkle some bacon bits before the glaze is all set.

-This cookie pairs very good with a nice cup of tea/coffee or a sweet wine.

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting. My brother loves peanut butter cookie and he is coming over next week. I would love to make these for him.

  3. Tania says:

    My husband wants to know if the glaze could be converted to a peanut butter glaze, if so how?
    I’ll have to do both glazes if it is.

    • SandraWidick says:

      Hi Tania ! You can make a peanut butter glaze… I would suggest this: Creamy peanut butter, sifted powdered sugar and some water. Mix the creamy peanut butter with the sugar and add some water based how thick you want it. Hope this helps. And yes, make both glazes because the maple one is sooo good!
