Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies - A Bountiful Love

Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

    Ever since I discovered Pinterest, I've seen a whole lot of awesome, mouth-watering, delicious, and gorgeous to look at cookie recipes. I've 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.

Preheat 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!
