Peanut Butter Cookies

When life gives you peanuts, make peanut butter cookies. 
Calling all you peanut butter lovers out there!

These classic peanut butter cookies are SO good, SO easy- perfect for any novice baker!! 

If I recall correctly, these are the first things I learned to bake. 

I was totally amused at how easy it is and how decadent my first baked treat was.

H & I are big fans of peanut butter.. We add it to anything and everything; smoothies, waffles, cookies, noodles, dessert quesadilla.. PBJ, how can I forget the epic PBJ sandwich!!
These cookies can be made with flour or even flour-less.
It can be made soft&chewy or crunchy.
Today, I'm sharing the recipe for crunchy cookies made with wheat flour and decadent peanut butter.

makes 25 cookies
  • Egg- 1
  • Wheat flour/all purpose flour - 1/2 cup
  • Peanut Butter- 1 cup
  • Sugar- 3/4 cup
  • Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
  • Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 °F.
  2. In a bowl, cream together egg and sugar until frothy.
  3. To this, add peanut butter and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Combine baking powder with flour and mix it with peanut butter mixture.
  5. Scoop out a spoonful of dough about 2 inches apart onto a cookie sheet.
  6. Using the fork, create a criss-cross pattern on top of the cookie.
  7. Optionally, you can  sprinkle some(very less) sugar/salt on top of cookie.
  8. Bake for 11 mins or until slightly browned on the sides
  9. Remove from oven and let the cookies rest on baking sheet for 5 mins before you transfer it to wire-rack for cooling.
  10. Store the cookies in air-tight jar in room temperature for a week.

  1. Make sure you use room temperature eggs.
  2. You can use brown sugar too.
  3. If your dough is thin , refrigerate for 30 mins.
  4. Make sure you keep the baking sheet in middle rack.
  5. Cookies will be soft when you take it out, but it ll set by itself when left on the baking sheet and when cooled on wire-rack.
  6. If you don't have a wire-rack, just take out a rack out of oven(when it is NOT hot, of course)
