Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
Nothing can beat the taste of a classic peanut butter cookie. An all-time favorite among young and old alike, it is very simple to bake. Here is what you need:
- All Purpose Flour – 2.5 cups
- Crunchy Peanut Butter – 1 cup
- Unsalted Butter – 1 cup
- Sugar – 2 cups
- Baking Powder – 1 teaspoon
- Baking Soda – 1.5 teaspoon
- Salt – ½ teaspoon
- Eggs – 2
Take the unsalted butter, crunchy peanut butter and sugar in a bowl. Mix it well. Now add the eggs in this mixture and then beat it well.
Next you need to add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to this mixture, and beat the batter until it gets mixed evenly. Now keep this batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
After an hour, roll the batter into balls of one-one inch each and put it on the baking sheet. Once the balls are made, use a fork to flatten them by making a criss-cross pattern the balls. The next step is to bake it in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees F for around 10 minutes or rather till the cookies turn brown.
Always keep in mind not to over-bake the cookies.
Rolled Sugar Cookies
The next time you crave for rolled sugar cookies, you just have to bake it. With the below given recipe, now you can bake rolled sugar cookies whenever you want. Here is how you can do it:
- All Purpose Flour – 5 cups
- Sugar (white) – 2 cups
- Butter (Softened) – 1.5 cups
- Baking Powder – 2 teaspoons
- Salt – 1 teaspoon
- Eggs – 4
- Vanilla Extract – 1 teaspoon
Take a huge bowl and mix together the butter and sugar into a smooth paste. Now add eggs to this along with Vanilla to this paste and beat them well. You can use hand blenders to mix all the ingredients well (Flipkart has some amazing offers on the best brands of hand blenders). Now add to this the mixture, baking powder and salt to this and make dough. Once the dough is done, cover it and chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour or may be overnight.
The next step is to pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees F / 200 degrees C. By the time the oven gets preheated, you need to roll out the dough on floured surface and cut in into different shapes. Make it a point that the dough is ¼ to ½ inch thick. Once you are done with cutting various shapes of the cookies, you have to place them on an ungreased cookie sheet – each cookie at least 1 inch apart.
Now bake these cookies for 6-8 minutes in the preheated oven. Once baked, let the cookies cool completely.
You can make icing for the cookies using confectioners’ sugar and milk (the proportion of sugar depends on how sweet you want the icing to be). Now paint the icing on the cookies with a pastry brush. Thick enough that the icing spreads evenly on the cookies but not so thin that it makes the cookies wet and flows down. Your rolled sugar cookies are ready! Enjoy it with your family and friends.
So this is how you can bake lovely cookies on your own. These recipes are very simple and easy to bake and with Flipkart offers and Flipkart coupons you can get all the baking essentials at amazingly low prices.
