Peanut Butter Cookies (30 March 2010)

I was in the mood for something sweet and chewy…

My go-to peanut butter cookie recipe adapted from Baking Blonde:


  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 1/3 cups AP flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar (for covering dough balls before baking)


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

2. Using a large mixing bowl, cream the peanut butter and butter together until smooth.

3. Add both the sugars and mix until combined.

4. Add the egg and milk.

5. In a seperate bowl, sift the flour and baking powder together.

6. Add to peanut butter mixture in 3 additions. Mix until just combined.

7. Chill dough for at least 15 minutes. This will prevent spreading and flat cookies.

8. Roll about a tablespoon of dough into a ball with your hands.

9. Roll the dough balls in the white sugar until covered and place on baking sheet.

10. Carefully press each ball with a fork to make the characteristic crosshatch design.

11. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly browned and puffed.

12. Remove cookies from the oven and cool on baking sheets for 5-10 minutes.
