A thin and chewy cross between a peanut-butter cookie and a gingersnap

¾ cup all-purpose flour
⅓ cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
½ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp each ground allspice and salt
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar (not packed)
⅓ cup light peanut butter
3 tbsp butter, softened
2 tbsp molasses
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together both flours, baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt. Set aside. Combine granulated sugar and remaining 1 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.

In another medium bowl, beat together brown sugar, peanut butter and butter on medium speed of electric mixer for about 1 minute. Add molasses, egg and vanilla. Beat again until smooth.

Using a wooden spoon, stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture. You will be making a stiff dough. Using your hands, shape dough into 1½-inch balls. Roll balls in reserved cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart (they spread a lot when baking). Flatten cookies slightly using a fork.

Bake cookies for 7 minutes. They may appear undercooked, but that’s okay. Remove cookies from oven and immediately transfer from pan to a wire rack to cool.
