  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Heat treat the flour by adding it to a small heatproof bowl and microwaving for 30-second increments, stirring each time, until it registers 165 F on an instant-read thermometer . (Alternatively, spread the flour out on a small rimmed baking sheet and bake at 350 F for 10 minutes.)
  3. Step 3

    Let the flour cool to room temperature. If the flour is clumpy, whisk or sift it before using. Note: heat treating the flour can be done ahead of time.
  4. Step 4

    Add the softened butter and peanut butter to a medium mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 1 minute, or until smooth and creamy.
  5. Step 5

    Add the brown sugar and salt. Beat at medium speed to combine then increase speed to medium-high and continue to beat for 3 minutes to help the sugar dissolve. The mixture should be smooth and creamy.
  6. Step 6

    Add the vanilla and mix to combine. Add the flour and mix until combined.
  7. Step 7

    Add 1 tablespoon of milk or heavy cream and mix to combine. Continue to add 1 tablespoon more at a time to reach your desired consistency.
