“I made up my own recipe for these cookies, as I don't like really sweet peanut butter cookies. As a matter of fact, some people may want to add a little more sugar to these. I make them just as written. Great with coffee, hot chocolate, or milk. Enjoy!”
2-3 dozen

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and egg until light n fluffy.
  2. In a smaller bowl stir together flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. Gently stir in the flour mixture into the butter mixuture until well blended.
  4. Using a teaspoon, gather enough dough to form a ball aprox. 1".
  5. Drop on to cookie sheet about 2" apart and gently push down making a criss cross mark on top of ball (till slightly flattened) using a fork dipped in sugar. (I use a dark colored cookie sheet.).
  6. Bake in oven at 370°F for approximately 12 minute or unitl golden brown.
  7. Remove to racks to cool.
  8. *I have used this recipe to place the 1" dough balls into mimi muffin tins and bake for 12 minute As soon as they come out of the oven, I push in a mimi reeses peanut butter cup, or a hershey chocolate kiss.
  9. Works great!
