Homemade Peanut Butter Cookies!

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 7 mins

My grandma passed this recipe down to me when I was 13 and I have always gotten good reviews. It's super simple and quick to whip up before a party or BBQ. I know it sounds like the recipe is lacking something, but trust me on this one!


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl by hand.
  3. Drop dough by the spoonful on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Make a criss-cross pattern on the top of the dough with a fork.
  5. Bake for 7-9 minutes.
  6. Let cool on a wire rack or plate.

very good but instead of adding egg I added 14 cup applesauce and turned out great

I have only one word for this recipe --- WOW!!!! These absolutely rival other recipes that call for more ingredients and more steps. This recipe has replaced all others for peanut butter cookies -- even my own mother's!
