Peanut Butter Cookies [Food Processor Attachment]

Multiple applications using the Food Processor to make fresh peanut butter, cutting out the need for several extra pieces of equipment.


  • 1 ⅔ cups (200 g) high gluten bread flour
  • 1 ⅔ cups (200 g) cake flour
  • 2 cups (270 g) peanuts, roasted salted
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, optional
  • 1 cup (220 g) unsalted butter, room temperature (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup (215 g) cane sugar [or turbinado sugar]
  • 1 cup (215 g) light brown sugar
  • 2 large egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Measure bread and cake flour, baking soda, and salt, and place into a medium sized bowl. Whisk to incorporate and set aside.
  2. Fit the Food Processor with the Multi-Use Blade.  Place peanuts into the Vitamix container and secure lid.  Start the machine and process for 2 minutes.
  3. Place butter, sugars, and eggs on top of the peanut butter. Start the machine and  process for 45 seconds.
  4. Add the mixed flours to the Food Processor Work Bowl and pulse 4-5 times, stopping and scraping down the sides of the bowl when necessary. Pulse an additional 4-5 times.
  5. Prepare cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or silicon baking sheets. Scoop into 2.25 oz (1/4 cup) cookies, spacing them 3-4 inches (8-10cm) apart on the cookie sheets. Make cross hatch marks with the tines of a fork if desired. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  6. Place in preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until desired color is achieved. Let cool slightly before moving to a cooling rack to finish cooling completely.
