Homemade Peanut Butter Cookies

Homemade peanut butter cookies seem to be a favorite of many. They are
good year round, not just for the holidays. This is a simple recipe
that is pretty basic and one my husband absolutely adores. If you are
looking to add some jazz to your homemade peanut butter
cookies, add in 3/4 cups mini chocolate chips or chopped
pecans, or dip in chocolate like I do! There are so many varieties of
peanut butter cookies but this is one I’ve stuck with throughout the
years. If you would like to make peanut blossoms, go ahead and use
this recipe, but do not flatten. Just roll in balls, bake and press a
Hershey’s kiss in the center. Enjoy.

Homemade Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter-room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar-firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350° F. Beat the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar
and granulated sugar until creamy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In a
separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to
the creamed mixture. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into balls and place
on lightly greased baking sheets. Using a fork, mark the tops of each
cookie ball with an “X.” Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove to cool on wire racks. Makes about 3 dozen cookies or more
depending on the size of balls you make.

Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies:

Once cooled, melt chocolate almond bark in the microwave according to
package directions, and dip half the cookie in the chocolate. Let
excess chocolate drip and place on wax paper until it hardens.

  1. Thank you for allowing me to guest post!

  2. I love peanut butter cookies! Thanks so much for posting this fabulous recipe! =)

  3. YUM! Peanut butter cookies are a favorite at our house! And dipping them in chocolate makes them twice as yummy!

  4. Great Recipe – do you have the nutrient content for these?

    Also just wondering if some of the ingredients be replaced by organic unsalted unsweetened peanut butter, a sugar-substitute, egg whites and a different type of flour – perhaps whole wheat or spelt?

    Thank you :)

    • Unfortunately I don’t have the nutrition information for these. I know the peanut butter substitute wouldn’t be a problem as far as the baking process, but the cookies won’t be quite as sweet. Xylitol is the only sugar substitute I have worked with and I can vouch for it.
