  4. Use a cookie scoop to measure out 1-2 tbsp of cookie dough and roll into balls, optonally rolling into sugar before placing them on the baking sheet.

Notes

Use creamy peanut butter. I haven’t tested this recipe out with drippy peanut butter, so I can’t say if the texture will come out the same. I use natural creamy peanut butter which works best for these cookies.

If the cookie dough feels too sticky to roll into balls, place the bowl of cookie dough in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Use a cookie scoop to measure out even cookies.
