My favorite peanut butter cookie. Not too peanuty and a nice texture. Makes 20 regular-size or 10 3-inch cookies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375°.
  2. In large bowl, combine sugars, margarine, peanut butter, vanilla and egg; beat well.
  3. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup and level off.
  4. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well.
  5. If you are making the large cookies, it helps to chill the dough for an hour or so at this point, before shaping. It seems to make a firmer cookie--less likely to break. If you aren't concerned about that, you can skip this step.
  6. Shape about 1/4 cup dough (for 3-inch cookie) into a ball and place 4 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet (6 per sheet).
  7. Bake at 375° for 13-16 minutes.
  8. Remove from cookie sheet and cool completely on wire rack.

Wonderfully delicious peanut butter cookie and I like that they're GIANT! I love how they're soft and chewy in the center but crispy and buttery around the edges. My whole family loves this cookie.
