Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe – Yummy

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: July 27, 2008 | Categories: Recipes

My husband loves peanut butter cookies and wanted me to bake some so I thought I’d share my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe.  These cookies turn out so yummy and delicious!


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.

    This is a easy and fairly quick recipe and can be altered to be healthier if you like.  Use natural peanut butter, turbinado sugar, 4 egg whites or egg substitute and instead of white flour use whole wheat flour.

    I hope you get a chance to try this peanut butter cookie recipe.  If you have a favorite peanut butter recipe share it with us.  Hope to hear from you!
