Peanut butter and chocolate is definitely one of our favorite flavor combinations. But if you're not a fan of that duo, simply leave off the chocolate.
1/2 cup (1 stick, 4 ounces) unsalted butter or margarine
3/4 cup (7 1/8 ounces) creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup (2 ounces) granulated sugar
1/3 cup (2 1/4 ounces) brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups(6 3/8 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
chocolate chunks or "kisses"
In a large bowl, beat the butter or margarine and peanut butter till well blended. Add the sugars; beat till light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk and vanilla, and beat well. Stir the flour, soda and salt together. Gradually mix into the wet ingredients.
Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar. Place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately place one chocolate chunk or "kiss" on each cookie. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: 4 dozen cookies.
