peanut butter sea salt cookies

sounds good right?
so here is one of my favorite peanut butter cookie recipes:
rosie's peanut butter cookies
1/2 lb. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 c. packed lt. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. commercial peanut butter (smooth)
2 lg. eggs
1 t. vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. a.p. flour
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
*preheat to 350
*cream butter and sugars with whisk attachment on high until fluffy and light. abt. 5 min's.
add p.nut. butter. continue beating on high until incorporated with butter. on low, beat in eggs
one at a time. then add vanilla.
*separate bowl. whisk flour, bak.soda, and salt together. gradually add dry into wet with paddle
attachment or wooden spoon until no flour visible.
*use appropriate size scoop to your liking. i love to use an ice cream scoop so they are all the
same size. press down with heel of your hand (with a bit of flour so your hands dont stick to
*press with fork going vertically and horizontally.
*bake 18-20 min's for large cookie, 10-12 min's for small cookies.
my version:
sprinkle with this sea salt before baking.
just a smidge. not much.
and this is where the recipe
came from...one of my favorite cook books.

and on a side note:
how cute are those little hands,
all painted hot pink!
thanks vanessa!

now go make some cookies, sit outside with a glass of milk
and soak up this lovely windy weather.
