Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies

1 from 1 vote


  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour - Make sure to measure exactly. To get a good measure I scoop the flour and level with a knife.


  • Combine butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla until blended.
  • Combine remaining dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to peanut butter mixture until well combined. Dough will seem dry.
  • Form dough into balls by pressing together and rolling between the palms of your hands and place on Silpat or parchment paper lined cookie sheet..
  • Using a fork, press down the balls and create a criss cross pattern.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until for about 7 (or LESS!) minutes until they look just barely done, almost underdone. DO NOT over bake! The cookies will get dry and crumbly if over baked. Look for a blonde cookie, rather than golden brown edges.
  • Cool completely on wire rack and store in airtight container.
