Peanut Butter Curry Cookies
Makes 2 dozen

Adapted from Cook’s Illustrated

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup each sugar and peanuts for rolling

Preheat the oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment. Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and curry in a medium bowl. In a larger bowl, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the peanut butter and beat until completely incorporated. Then beat in the eggs, vanilla, and slowly add in the flour until it is fully combined.

Using a scoop, measure out a ball of dough and release it into your hand. Shape it into a round ball, then roll in sugar and garnish with a peanut.

Bake cookies for about 10 – 12 minutes, or until the centers are just beginning to puff and deflate. A slightly under baked cookie is better here than a burnt crisp of one. Cool on a rack.
