My Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

These soft peanut butter cookies are easy to make, full of peanut butter flavor, and don’t require any dough chilling!

It’s been my goal this year to post more classic recipes on the blog.  As much as I love creative fun desserts, I think it’s important to have classic, simple recipes to keep in your recipe box.  It all started with these oatmeal raisin cookies, then these classic lemon bars, and now these incredibly soft peanut butter cookies.

My favorite thing about this cookie recipe is that there’s no dough chilling required.  The dough takes about 15 minutes to whip up and prep for the oven, 10 minutes to bake, and about 5 minutes to cool.

That means you can be eating soft, warm peanut butter cookies in about 30 minutes!


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups sifted flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt



Preheat oven to 375?. Mix first six ingredients.
Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
Roll into balls and press down with a fork dipped in sugar or flour.
Bake for 10-12 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet.
