Peanut butter cookies

Sure! Here’s a simple recipe for peanut butter cookies:


  • 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: Additional granulated sugar for rolling (about 1/4 cup)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  3. If desired, you can roll the dough into small balls and then roll each ball in additional granulated sugar for a slightly sweet and crunchy exterior. This step is optional but adds a nice touch.
  4. Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. If you prefer, you can use a fork to make a crisscross pattern on the cookies by gently pressing down on each dough ball.

  1. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. The cookies will be soft when you take them out of the oven, but they will firm up as they cool.
  2. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Once cooled, your peanut butter cookies are ready to be enjoyed! They can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for several days.

Feel free to adjust the recipe to your taste preferences. You can add chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or even drizzle melted chocolate on top of the cookies for extra flavor and decoration. Enjoy your homemade peanut butter cookies!
