Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and salt
  • 1 cup unsalted dry-roasted peanuts chopped
  • 1 cup honey-roasted peanuts chopped
Garnish:
  • 2/3 cups honey-roasted peanuts

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until fluffy; beat in egg, egg yolk and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Stir in dry-roasted peanuts and honey-roasted peanuts.

Drop by 1 tbsp, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, onto parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets; press to flatten to about 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Top each with 1 honey-roasted peanut. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, switching and rotating sheets halfway through, until tops are firm and bottoms are golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool on pans for 1 minute; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)
