Peanut Butter Cookies can be such a yummy and chewy treat and because they include all that protein-rich peanut butter, they’re totally good for you. Right? Who knows, but I’m willing to indulge in this treat made extra special by using chunky peanut butter for an extra nutty crunch and the Crumble Spice Artisan Blend, one of my easy favorites.


1/2 cup Butter (room temperature)
1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 Extra Large Egg
1 cup Chunky Peanut Butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Crumble Spice Artisan Blend
1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar additional to roll cookies


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In a mixer combine butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla and mix on medium-high for about 3-4 minutes.  Next mix in peanut butter. In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, Crumble Spice (or substitute Cinnamon) and salt.  Reduce the mixer to low speed and slowly incorporate the flour mixture until just combined.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and then roll in sugar. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten slightly with fork. Bake for 12-15 minutes until just golden and remove from oven. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then remove to a cooling rack to set completely.
