A creamy, delicious, simple recipe for peanut-butter cookies! These cookies are my favorite cookies! They are delicious! (I found it in an old recipe book my mother had. Smudges of flour had rubbed off the name!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the butter until creamy, for about 2 minutes. Add both of the sugars, beat butter and sugar mix for two more minutes. Then mix in the peanut butter and egg. Mix together all the dry ingredients including: flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Stir the dry ingredients into the sugar butter mixture.
  2. Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least three hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit*.
  4. Shape dough into balls that are one inch and one-fourth wide and long. Place about three inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet. Flatten in criss-cross patterns with a fork. Place in oven.
  5. Bake cookies till they are a light brown (nine to ten minutes*). Cool on baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer to rack to cool completely. *For chewier cookies bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for fifteen minutes.

These are fantastic! I followed the baking directions for chewier cookies and they were perfect. I used some special "gourmet" peanut butter that has chocolate, honey, and vanilla in it because I thought it would make fantastic peanut butter cookies - and I was right! Thanks so much for sharing!
