Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are a beloved classic. They’re easy to make and are every peanut butter lover’s dream.

They also happen to be my husband’s favorite cookies! Although it was followed by Peanut Butter Cup Cookies and Peanut Butter Kisses.

They came out of the oven fresh and warm, but I also love these dipped in milk the next day.There are many variations and additions to the classic cookie, but no matter how you “Spread it”, peanut butter cookies are delicious!

How to Make Peanut Butter Cookies

dough. Add butter, peanut butter and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Blend until creamy, then add vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together, then add it to the butter mixture.

chill. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour.

form. Roll the frozen dough into 1-inch balls. Line them on a baking sheet, then use a fork to flatten the dough into a cross.

tip: The cookies may not spread like other cookies because of the peanut butter. Hence the cross mark as the signature of the peanut butter cookie. These marks are just a decorative way to press the dough into the desired shape and thickness.

bake. Bake at 350° for about 10 minutes or until cookies start to brown.

Changes and Tips

Remix: This dough is great for adding small amounts of mixture to easily change cookies. The last time I made them, I used part of the dough for regular cookies. One part is mixed with chopped Reese’s cup, and one third is Hershey Kiss. Some other mixes you can use include:

  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Reese’s work
  • Peanut butter or butterscotch chips
  • White chocolate chips or drizzle with white chocolate on top.

The best peanut butter When making cookies it is “regular” creamy like Jif or Skippy. If you like nuts in cookies, you can use regular crunchy peanut butter.

Having said that, you can try using natural peanut butter. The texture will vary, resulting in more crumbly and drier cookies. Also, you may need to add a pinch of salt and sugar to your recipes, as natural peanut butter lacks both.

make ahead, store or freeze

in advance: Come on, double the recipe. You won’t regret having cookies on hand for a quick after-school snack, a treat for uninvited guests, or a late-night snack for you and your spouse.

Peanut Butter Cookies Can saved In dough form or as baked cookies.

arrive store cookie dough, Wrap in plastic and store in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. You can also form cookie dough balls, snap freeze them, transfer them to the Ziploc freezer and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.

shop bake cookies Store in an airtight container for 7-10 days or freeze for 3 months in a Ziploc bag.

Pro tip: When storing baked cookies at room temperature, place a loaf of white bread in a container. Bread will make cookies softer and longer.
