My FAVORITE cookie in the whole wide world!

Thank goodness I'm not allergic to peanuts because peanut butter cookies are my all-time favorite cookie.  They're also pretty quick to make and you usually have all the ingredients on hand.  I've probably posted these cookies before since I make them almost monthly.  They're practically a staple in my house!  I'm not sure I've included the recipe before so here it is. 

1/2 C butter
1/2 C peanut butter (I use creamy but you could use chunky)
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 C all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Thoroughly cream butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla.  Sift together the dry ingredients and blend into creamed mixture.  Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.  (I use parchment paper on my cookie sheets and that way I just have to wipe them off and put them away when I'm done, no scrubbing involved!)  Criss-cross the cookies with fork tines dipped in the sugar so they won't stick.  Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.  Cool slightly and remove from pan.  Makes 4 dozen. 

I bake mine a little bit longer as I like mine browner.  I am definitely a crispy cookie kind of gal!

See what I mean about baking mine longer....those are PERFECT for me! LOL!
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do! 


  1. I just looked at your reading list. I love Fluke's books. I haven't read one in a while either. I need to visit the library now. Love the cookies too!

  2. You're making my mouth water, LOL.
