My nana used to fill tubs of Tupperware with these babies. Now I can say I do the same too, and they are just as good!

Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe




1 cup unsalted butter, softened


1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter


1 cup granulated sugar


1 cup packed brown sugar


2 large eggs


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda


1/2 teaspoon salt




Preparation: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper


Mix Wet Ingredients: In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Then, incorporate the eggs one at a time.



Combine Dry Ingredients: Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl.


Combine Mixtures: Gradually blend the dry ingredients into the wet mix, stirring until just integrated to avoid overmixing.


Shape Cookies: Roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and arrange them on the prepared sheet, leaving space between each. Flatten them with a fork to create a crisscross pattern.


Bake: Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are just golden. The cookies will set as they cool, so don’t worry if the centers seem soft.


Cool: Allow the cookies to rest on the sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


Enjoy your Peanut Butter Cookies fresh from the oven, or pair them with milk, ice cream, or fruit preserves for an extra special treat. Keep any leftovers in an airtight container to maintain their freshness. Dive into the joy of baking and savor the timeless appeal of these beloved cookies. Happy baking!
