Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

Peanut butter cookie recipe
Serving Size:
Makes 3 dozen cookies.


  • ½ cup of butter
  • ½ cup of peanut butter
  • ½ cup of light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp of baking soda dissolved in 1 tablespoon of hot water
  • 1 ¼ cups flour


  1. Preheat oven to 375° and prepare ungreased cookie sheets (I use parchment paper)
  2. Cream butter, peanut butter, sugars and egg together. Mix in baking soda and hot water. Add flour and mix until smooth.
  3. I refrigerate the cookie dough for two hours before baking – but you don’t have to do so.
  4. Drop heaping teaspoonful, 1 inch apart, onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Dip a fork into flour, press onto top of cookie dough (crisscross). Bake for 7-8 minutes per tray.
