15 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and place racks in the upper and lower third of the oven.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until well combined.
  3. Mix dry ingred in a bowl, add to peanut butter mixture.
  4. Chill the dough briefly if you have time. It is easier to shape than other doughs if not chilled, but I prefer to work with chilled dough.
  5. Spoon about 1.5 tablespoons of mixture about 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly.
  6. Score the cookie tops with the tines of a fork in a crosshatch design.
  7. Bake until golden around edges, about 9-10 minutes, rotating the pans after about 4 or 5 minutes.
  8. Let cool on racks.
  9. I will add chocolate chips or chunks next time.
  10. These were a bit on the sweet side for me, but you might like them as is, or use 1-2 T less sugar.
