Peanut Butter Cookies

Pb Heaven. 

I owed some sweets to my brother in law Keenan. He LOVES peanut butter and requested these classic peanut butter cookies! 

These are simple and a favorite among most families but I have never made them! They are easy to make and delicious 


2 cups packed brown sugar

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

2 eggs

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

  1. Cream the butter, sugar, eggs and peanut butter in a bowl. 
  2. Combine all the dry ingredients - flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and add to the wet mixture
  3. Refrigerate for 3 hours or more if you can!
  4. Oven should be preheated to 375 (my oven is hot so I did 350) Roll dough balls to desired size and make a cross fork pattern on each by pressing the prongs of the fork onto the cookie. I didn't flatten mine very much because I like thicker cookies :)
  5. Bake for 8-10 min or until they begin to brown
  6. Chow down!


  1. Because this recipe has a lot of sugar already I used a "natural" peanut butter with very little sugar. I would suggest doing this unless you want uber sweet cookies
  2. The butter melts quickly in these so make sure to refrigerate until the dough is pretty stiff, otherwise you'll get flat cookies.
