Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, and salt. Using an electric mixer, blend the peanut butter, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl.

  • Add the sugars and blend, then add half the flour mixture and blend again. Add the egg and water and blend, then add the remaining flour mixture and blend again.

  • Form the dough into one large mound with your hands, then gently roll the dough into 30 small balls, about 1 rounded tablespoon dough each.

  • Arrange the dough balls on parchment paper-lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Using the back of a fork, flatten the dough balls in a crosshatch design. Bake the cookies 22 minutes or until crisp. Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks and cool completely.
