Karissa's Soft and Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies

"I think the name says it all. I haven't made these in awhile, so the yield is a total guestimate. They make fabulous peanut butter blossoms, but sometimes I'm just in the mood for a good plain peanut butter cookie! I really think you'll like 'em!"

Ready In:
24 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Sift together the flour, soda and salt; set aside.
  • Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar and vanilla. Add egg and brown sugar. Slowly incorporate flour mixture (batter will be stiff).
  • Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into balls and roll in sugar. Place on cookie sheet and press down lightly on each cookie with a fork in criss-cross pattern. Bake for about 8 - 10 minutes.
  • To make peanut butter blossoms, don't make pattern on cookie with fork before baking. Simply place on cookie sheet and bake about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and gently press a chocolate kiss onto the top of each cookie until the cookie cracks slightly. Return to the oven for a couple of minutes.

    I ended up adding wayyy more peanut butter, a little of both sugars and vinila to get it to taste not like cardboard. They were soft and im currently trying a single cookie in the oven until i get the batter right. not going to lie i might just eat the batter cause that is Y U M M Y

    Delicious and perfectly soft! I am not a fan of the crispy version of Peanut Butter Cookies so these really fit the bill. First bite out of the oven....soft, warm and heavenly. My husband said, "well done honey, well done". Enough said!

    Great Cookie! I used chocolatechips instead of the kisses,and the only problem I had was NOT eating the dough before I could get them in the oven! Thanks Klyn!

    Delicious! Peanut butter cookies are one of my family's favorite cookies and they loved these. These cookies are quick and easy to make and are soft and chewy. I used extra-crunchy peanut butter and didn't use the chocolate kisses. This made 30 cookies. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. *Made for Adopt A Tag II*

    I love making p.b. cookies with the chocolate kisses on top. These did not disappoint. Used the chocolate kisses filled with p.b. You can never have enough chocolate and p.b....Thanks Klyn... Made for Springs PAC 08'


I am in my late 20s and live in Oklahoma. I am married with no children yet (apart from DH!). I'm fluent in Spanish, and would love to learn more languages. I enjoy cooking, but baking is more my forte.
