Alton Brown's Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies


 1 cup smooth peanut butter

1/4 unpacked light brown sugar

1/2 ungranulated sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


Heat the oven to 350°F. Line to half sheet pans with parchment paper and set aside.

Beat together the peanut butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well combined with a wooden spoon in a large bowl. Add the egg, baking soda, vanilla, and salt and beat until well combined.

Roll the dough into 1-ounce balls, place 8 per prepared sheet pan, then flatten with the tines of a fork. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies look dry and are just lightly browned. Cool the cookies for 2 minutes on the sheet pans.

Made these for Bella, she is Ted's daughter.
