For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 200g (1 cup) of granulated sugar
  • 125g (1/2 cup) of butter, softened
  • 250g (1 cup) of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 260g (2 cups) of all-purpose flour
  • 5g (1 teaspoon) of baking powder
  • 2g (1/2 teaspoon) of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 190°C (375°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar, butter, and peanut butter until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the egg until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, mixing until a dough forms.
  6. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.


  • You can use crunchy peanut butter for added texture.
  • Do not overbake the cookies, as they can become too hard. They will firm up as they cool.
  • You can freeze the dough balls for up to 3 months. Bake directly from the freezer, adding a couple of extra minutes to the baking time.


With this simple recipe, you can easily whip up a batch of delicious peanut butter cookies. Whether you’re making them for a special occasion or just because, these cookies are sure to be a hit. Happy baking!
