For Dry Ingredients
1 cup + ¼ cup/150 g. All Purpose Flour 1 tsp. Baking Powder ½ tsp. Baking Soda ¼ tsp. Salt
For Wet Ingredients :-
100 g. White Butter (unsalted) ½ cup/100 g. Jaggery Powder ½ cup/100 g. Brown Sugar 1 cup/240 g. Peanut Butter (Crunchy) 1 Egg 1 tsp. Vanilla Essence
For Dry Ingredients :-
In a large bowl add all the dry ingredients one by one. Mix well and set aside (covered)
For Wet Ingredients :-
To the large bowl add butter + jaggery powder + brown sugar and beat together. Next add peanut butter to the bowl and beat again. Next, add an egg to the bowl and beat well until smooth. Add the vanilla essence to the bowl and beat again until well combined
To the wet ingredient bowl, gradually add the dry ingredient mix (not whole at one time)mix well. Add the remaining dry mix to the bowl and mix again until everything is well combined. It may take a while for this dough to come together; and when it does, it'll be quite stiff
Cover the bowl with a lid and allow it to rest for 30 mins in the refrigerator
For Baking :-
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking tray with two baking sheets.
(or lightly grease it) Roll dough into 1-inch balls and flatten each cookie between your palms to about ½” thick and then place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Once all the cookies are placed on the baking sheet, using a fork make a cross-hatch design
Bake in the preheated oven for about 12 -14 minutes, until edges are golden; the tops won't have browned. Cool on the baking sheets briefly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store cookies at room temperature in a glass/tin jar for a week or so; freeze for longer storage.
