Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

These Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies are absolutely fool proof and are so easy to make! These soft, chewy peanut butter cookies melt in your mouth, so be sure to have a glass of milk on hand.

I don’t mess around when it comes to cookies, especially peanut butter cookies.

I’ve tried my fair share of peanut butter cookies and some of my favorites are our Copycat Disneyland Peanut Butter Cookies, Frosted Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies and our Peanut Butter Cookie Cups.

As good as all of those are, sometimes you just crave a soft, chewy peanut butter cookie.

This recipe is my go-to Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe because they come out absolutely perfect every single time.  Every time I make these cookies, people always tell me they are the BEST Peanut Butter Cookies they’ve ever tried.

How To Make the Best Peanut Butter Cookies:

You probably think cookies that taste this good will be pretty complicated, but they are so easy to make and are absolutely fool proof!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream together butter, sugars and peanut butter.

Add eggs, flour, baking soda and vanilla extract and mix until combined.

I like to roll these cookies by hand, so if you feel like your dough is too sticky to roll with your hands, add a little more flour and mix until well combined.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls, roll in additional sugar, and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Use a fork to make a criss-cross design on top.

Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

THE BEST COOKIE RECIPES:

Peanut Butter Cookie Ingredients:

These cookies can easily be adapted to your taste and preference.  Try adding more flavor with these optional ingredients:

  • chocolate chips
  • peanut butter chips
  • coarsely chopped peanut butter cups
  • chopped peanuts
  • coarsely chopped pretzels
  • M&Ms

Cookie tips & tricks:

  • For softer peanut butter cookies, don’t flatten them with the fork.  They will be puffier and softer.
  • For crispier peanut butter cookies, use a fork to flatten the dough balls.
  • Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes before rolling into balls for a chewier peanut butter cookie.
  • To soften your butter, you can set it at room temperature for at least an hour or put it in the microwave on defrost for four seconds at a time, just until it’s soft.

    These are amazing cookies! The only thing I have to say is that they don't hold together very well I had several break taking them off of the cookie sheet after they had time to cool and everything. The second batch I had more success with though after adding more peanut butter to them. Keep doing what you ladies do though love your recipes!
