All time favourite Peanut Butter Cookies recipe!

We love Peanut Butter in our home, especially the CHUNKY ones!

This is definitely my go-to recipe if we are craving for some PB cookies.

These cookies are so light and it so totally melts in your mouth!


I adapted this recipe from Alice Medrich! It's so easy to make!

All you need:
(makes about 43 cookies)
1 1/3 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
8 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups peanut butter (I used chunky)
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

All you need to do:
1 - Sift flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. Set aside.
2 - Beat butter, sugar in a mixer until smooth and creamy not fluffy.
3 - Add peanut butter, egg and vanilla, and mix until just combined.
4 - Mix in the dry ingredients until just combined. Do not overmix.
5 - Keep dough in the fridge covered for at least 2 hours or overnight (best).
6 - Bake cookies at 175 degrees - fan forced. Scoop using an ice cream scoop (4 cm), use a fork to make the crisscross imprint. Do not flatten.
7 - Bake for about 16-18 minutes, cool on cooling rack. Store in air-tight container when completely cool.

Spruce it up!
8 - Melt some chocolate. Dip half of the baked cooled cookie in, shake excess chocolate off. Sprinkle with chopped salted nuts!

Go nuts! :)
