My Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies


– 1/2 cup of butter

– 1/2 cup peanut butter

– 1/2 cup of sugar

– 1/2 cup brown sugar

– 1 egg

– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

– 1 1/4 cups sifted flour

– 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

– 1/4 teaspoon of salt


Preheat the Oven:
– Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Prepare the Wet Ingredients:
– In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Mix these ingredients together until they are well combined.

Combine Dry Ingredients:
– In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Mix the Batter:
– Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well after each addition. Ensure that the batter is thoroughly combined.

Form Cookie Dough:
– Once the batter is mixed, use your hands to roll it into small balls. The size is up to your preference, but a typical size is about one inch in diameter.

Press with a Fork:
– Place the cookie balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a fork, dipped in either sugar or flour to prevent sticking, to press each ball and create a crisscross pattern on the top of the cookies. This also helps to flatten them slightly.

– Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Keep an eye on them, as baking times can vary depending on your oven.

– Once done, allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes. This helps them set before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

– Once the cookies are completely cooled, store them in an airtight container. Enjoy these delightful peanut butter cookies with your favorite beverage!

These peanut butter cookies are sure to be a hit with friends and family. The combination of butter, peanut butter, and the perfect blend of sugars creates a delicious treat that’s perfect for any occasion.
