Best Ever Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies hit the spot when it comes to a peanut butter craving. The smell they emit as they bake is to die for! Eat a few with a glass of milk

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 11 minutes
Total Time 26 minutes
Servings 15 large cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup bread flour (can substitute all purpose flour)
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Cream butter and sugars on medium-high heat until incorporated and fluffy (5 minutes). Make sure to stop the mixing and use a spatula to incorporate when needed. 

  2. Add the peanut butter and mix on medium-high for another 4 minutes until creamy and fluffy. Add the egg and incorporate. Mix in the milk and vanilla. Add all the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix. 

  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon or a cookie scoop, scoop up 1 tbsp balls for small cookies and 3 tbsp balls for big cookies. Place 6 on a tray and using the palm of your hand, flatten them slightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove and let cool on the pan for 5 minutes so that they set. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely (or just go ahead and eat them!)
