Recipe Info

  1. Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Slowly add in sriracha, eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined. In another bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gently mix flour into peanut butter mixture until well combined. Place batter into refrigerator for 1 hour to chill.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into approx 1" sized balls or use a Medium sized cookie scoop/Size 40 - 1½tbs portion. Dip the top of dough ball into granulated sugar and place onto cookie sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.
