Delicious peanut butter cookies packed with peanut-y flavor! So delicious and so EASY!

Guys I am here to tell you all that I have found the perfect peanut butter cookie recipe. They are moist, simple and so delicious. Made these for my dad and he was obsessed.

Try the recipe below and let me know what you think. And as always tag taste of genevieve on Instagram if you make them yourself 🙂 Would love to see how they turn out!

Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 1/3 cup (188g) all-purpose flour (scoop and level to measure)
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (105g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (110g) packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (185g) creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two 18 by 13-inch baking sheets with silicone baking liners or parchment paper.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until combined.

  4. Mix in peanut butter then blend in egg and vanilla. With mixer set on low speed slowly add in flour mixture and mix just until combined.
  5. Scoop dough out and shape into balls (30 grams each or nearly 2 Tbsp) then place on baking sheets spacing them 2-inches apart.

  6. Using a long pronged fork flatten cookies slightly then turn fork going opposite direction and flatten just slightly again (it should create that criss cross pattern).

Bake cookies in preheated oven, one sheet at a time, for about 9 minutes (cookies will appear pale and slightly under-baked, they’ll continue to cook slightly as they cool).
