Classic Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe


Who doesn’t like old fashioned peanut butter cookies? In surveys Peanut Butter Cookies always rank in the top five or so (always behind chocolate chip which are the #1 cookie baked in America), and when featured on cookie trays are often the first to go. Every cook needs a good recipe for peanut butter cookies, and this recipe for Classic Peanut Butter Cookies is one of the best. The texture is light, with a slightly sandy texture on the outside and a bit of chewiness on the inside. The flavor of real butter makes it impossible to stop at one cookie.

When looking for good cookies to take to a function, these are perfect, since they are not fragile. They can be made ahead and kept at room temperature in an airtight container for up to two weeks, and they freeze for months without compromising the texture or flavor. If searching for good cookies to send in care packages, these hold up well even with the rough treatment of the post office.

The instructions call for scooping the dough into tablespoonfuls, resulting in cookies about 2" in diameter. If larger cookies are preferable, scoop the dough into golf-ball size balls; they will need to bake 2-3 minutes longer and the finished cookies will be about 4" in diameter; the recipe will make about 2 dozen of the larger cookies. The recipe makes about 4 dozen of the 2" cookies.

2-4 dozen cookies, depending on size

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (no subs)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
