Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

    Ever since I discovered pinterest , Ive seen a whole lot of awesome , mouth watering , delicious and gorgeous to look at cookie recipes. Ive pinned simple , easy , short cut , complicated to even a cake mix cookie recipe. However, I don't know about you..but we like old fashion recipes once and a while. You can never go wrong with it. Sometimes, simple is always the best.


1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened. ( I have tried switching butter to coconut oil, same measurement..still taste fantastic)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter ( natural, creamy or chunky --whatever floats your boat)
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla


Since I mostly bake and cook from scratch , I do "pre made" my mixes  ahead of time. I just set aside about 30 minutes to do this , it saves me a lot of time.

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees
 In a separate bowl , Make your dry ingredients : mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Cream butter , peanut butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in egg until incorporated. Add the vanilla

Mix in your dry ingredients , until well combined. Do not over mix.
I wrapped the dough with a cling plastic wrap, place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hr.

Using a cookie scooper or just your hard working hands.. roll dough into balls. About 1-2 tbsp of dough, its up to you.

Dip the back of your fork with a little sugar and use it to press the cookie down gently in a criss cross pattern

Bake 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

I gave these yummy cookies to Rob , my husband dear. It never failed to make him smile..well..more of a huge grin. This guy of mine LOVES peanut butter cookies!
