Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a happy Mother’s Day to all those mamas out there!

Last week, I was baking at work and decided to try a few new recipes. I found this recipe on JuliasAblum blog and it was amazing! The cookies were gone within 48 hours and I even doubled the recipe! I can almost guarantee I will be making these again soon!

I like this recipe because it is super easy and they are unique because you don’t press them down like a typical peanut butter cookie 🙂


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar for coating

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, use a mixer together the peanut butter and butter until smooth. Add the brown sugar and beat until combined. Next, mix in the egg and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Slowly combine the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until a smooth dough is formed.


Grease a cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper. Then use your hand to roll small balls of dough. Roll each one in the sugar before placing it on the cookie sheet.


Place the dough balls into the oven and bake for about 12 minutes or until they start to puff up slightly. The cookies should be slightly brown around the edges and begin to crackle on the top. Remove them from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes before moving them to a wire rack.

Enjoy these wonderful cookies and try not to eat them all the first day!
