Big Super-Nutty Peanut Butter Cookies
(Best Peanut Butter Cookies)
Cook’s Illustrated Archives

"Bringing the butter, peanut butter and eggs to room temperature makes it
easier to blend the ingredients. Be sure to grind the peanuts, since whole,
and even chopped peanuts tend to slip out of the dough. If using unsalted
butter, increase salt to 1 teaspoon. Keep finished cookies refrigerated in
an airtight container. To restore just-baked chewiness, wrap a cookie in a
sheet of paper towel and microwave for approximately 25 seconds.
Cool before serving."

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound (2 sticks) salted butter
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup extra-crunchy peanut butter
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup roasted salted peanuts, ground
in food processor to resemble bread
crumbs, about 14 pulses

Adjust oven rack to low center position; heat oven to 350 degrees  F. Sift flour, soda, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. In bowl of electric
mixer or by hand, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars; beat until fluffy,
about 3 minutes with electric mixer, stopping to scrape down bowl as necessary. Beat in peanut butter until it is fully incorporated, then eggs,
one at a time, then vanilla. Gently stir dry ingredients into peanut butter mixture. Add ground peanuts, stir gently until just incorporated.
Working with 2 tablespoons dough at a time, roll into large balls, placing
them 2 inches apart on a parchment-covered cookie sheet. Press each
dough ball with the back of a dinner fork dipped in cold water to make crisscross design. Bake until cookies are puffed and slightly brown
around the edges, but not on top, 10 to 12 minutes (they will not look
fully baked). Cool cookies on sheet until set, about 4 minutes, then
transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Cookies will keep, refrigerated in an airtight container, up to 7 days.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
