How to Bake Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies from CookingWithKimberly.comWhat do Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies mean to me?

The perfect peanut butter cookie is chewy on the inside, crunchy on the outer edges and perfect when warm with a glass of milk.

If this is your idea of delicious, then this is the peanut butter cookie recipe for you!

It was our late-night pb snack last night…

Type: Cookie Recipe
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Yield:  2 dozen


  • 1/2 cup butter – softened/room temperature
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter – smooth or crunchy
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar – packed
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups bread flour – I prefer Robin Hood brand.
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk or beat/cream the butter & oil for 2 minutes until it’s completely smooth and slightly lightened in color.
  3. Add sugars and continue to mix for 2 minutes.
  4. Add beaten egg and peanut butter and continue to mix for 1 minute.
  5. In a separate bowl, sift dry ingredients left – flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt. Add to wet mixture bowl slowly while incorporating until it comes together into a ball. * Tip: It doesn’t have to be compact – I prefer it when it’s light and just barely combined.
  6. Onto a non-stick cookie sheet, place 12 balls that are roughly 2″ in diameter. * Tip: You may have to squeeze the dough together for it to completely combine and stick together enough to roll into a ball.
  7. Take a large-tined fork and make 2 impressions on cookie ball in a criss-cross pattern. This will flatten the ball into a cookie shape.
  8. Bake on 375 for 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown on edges – start checking @ 8 minutes.
  9. Remove sheets from oven and allow to sit for 1 minute. Then, take a flipper and remove the cookies to a cooling rack.
  10. Enjoy warm with a glass of cold milk!

These disappeared quickly last night! Wow…
