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.)
