Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ¼ cups peanut butter

  • 1 cup butter, cut into small chunks

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract (Optional)

  • 1 ½ cups quick-cooking oats

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.

  3. Beat peanut butter, butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into creamed butter, beating well before adding next egg; mix in vanilla extract and almond extract.

  4. Slowly stir flour mixture into creamed butter mixture until fully incorporated; fold in oats using a wooden spoon. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and arrange 1-inch apart on a baking sheet. Press a fork into each cookie if desired.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you find your dough oily, place the dough in the fridge for an hour until it firms up. This will ensure that you don't end up with pancake-shaped cookies because the butter/fat is melted. Alternately, consider sifting in additional flour.

Make sure that the cookie sheets you use are always cool when you place a new batch, so it doesn't melt the cookies before they make it to the oven.

If you want a lot of almond flavor to sweeten up the cookies, feel free to add a full teaspoon.
