Peanut butter cookies

Stopping by today to share my favorite ever peanut butter cookie recipe discovered with the help of Pinterest. These are incredibly good! Enjoy!

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook time: 12 mins.
Makes about 30 cookies.


1/2 cup butter, softened (remember to add some salt if you are using unsalted butter like I do since that is what we have available)
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Sea salt (coarse)


1. In a large bowl beat together butter and peanut butter using an electric mixer until well combined.
2. Add sugars and continue to beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and 1/4 tsp. of salt and mix just until well blended.
3. Roll balls of dough in white sugar before placing on an ungreased baking sheet. Press down lightly wtih the prongs of a fork to create a criss-cross pattern.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F (1700 Celsius) for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake.
5. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt as soon as you remove them from the oven.
6. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for at least 3 minutes before removing them to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
