Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

by - 5:38 AM

Peanut Butter cookies are in my top three cookie choices. First and second being White Chocolate macadamia Nut and Chocolate chip.

BUT the thing that Peanut Butter cookies have over any other cookies is that they're super simple, they bake fast, and you'll likely have most of the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

sorry for the bad lighting on these, baked them at midnight xD

These are two of my favorite recipes. They are SJ tested and approved.

PBCOOKIE #1 - the High Quality Peanut Butter Cookie
  • 1 1/2 cups butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy or crunchy peanut butter, your choice
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

2. Cream peanut butter and butter/margarine using an electric mixer, add sugars and mix well.

3. Add eggs and mix until creamy.

4. Add salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

5. Gradually add in the flour, incorporating all before adding more.

6. Use a spoon to scoop out the cookie dough and roll between palms, creating a ball. Then flatten using palms, not too thin though! Place on cookie sheet and press down the center of the cookie with a fork to create the PB cookie's # mark.

7. Bake at 325°F for 15 minutes. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes then transfer to cooling racks or newspaper (to soak up some grease).

This recipe makes a lot of dough! You can refridgerate the unused/unbaked dough for later baking in a sturdy ziploc bag! xD

PB COOKIE #2 - The 3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cookie
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Combine the peanut butter, white sugar and egg. Mix until smooth.

3. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Or you can use the method from the recipe above for the traditional Peanut Butter Cookie look.

4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 6 to 8 minutes. Care not to overbake! These cookies are best when they are still soft and just barely brown on the bottoms.
