  • 1-¼

    cups flour

  • 1-¼

    teaspoons kosher salt

    teaspoon baking soda

  • ½

    cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature

Directions

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, salt, cayenne, and baking soda.

Stir in the peanuts. Scoop the dough into 2-tablespoon balls, roll in sugar, and place on the prepared sheets at least 2 inches apart. Using a fork, gently press a crisscross in the top of each cookie, flattening it out to a 2 inch circle. bake until the cookies are light brown around the edges and on the bottom, 12 to 14 minutes, rotating the sheets halfway through. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on the sheets no racks, then move them to the racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or in freezer for 1 month.
