How to make Cardamom Spiced Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
To begin making the Cardamom Spiced Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe, we will first preheat oven to 180 C.
In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Add the eggs and sugar and beat until fluffy.
Once the butters become fluffy, add in both the flours, cardamom powder, salt, and baking powder.
Beat well, until the entire mixture forms cookie dough.
Divide the Peanut Butter Cookie cookie dough in 1-1/2 inch balls and make a criss-cross pattern using a fork.
Place the Peanut Butter Cookie shapes on a greased baking sheet and place it in the oven to bake.
(You can roll them on caster sugar before baking, so that the cookies will give an extra sugary crunch on the top)
Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes or until you notice they turn golden brown and crisp. Once done, remove from the oven
Let peanut butter cookies cool on the cookie sheet for about 8-10 minutes. Once cooled, remove them with a spatula and store.
Serve the Cardamom Spiced Peanut Butter Cookie as a tea time snack or even pack these healthy cookies into the kids snack boxes.
