Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

July 30, 2010

My Dad sent me a cookbook called “The Cook’s Encyclopedia of Cookies”. It’s full of fantastic recipes, including classics like this peanut butter cookie recipe. Delicious with a cold glass of milk!

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup crunchy peanut butter


  • Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg and vanilla and gradually beat into butter mixture.
  • Stir in peanut butter and blend thoroughly.
  • Stir in dry ingredients.
  • Chill 30 minutes, or until firm.
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray two cookie sheets with Pam cooking spray.
  • Spoon out rounded teaspoonfuls of dough and roll into balls.
  • Place balls on prepared cookie sheets and press flat with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
