Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

4 May


I have a different pb cookie recipe up here and even though that is an absolutely scrumptious recipe this recipe is equally as yum but for different reasons. This recipe is a sturdier cookie in the best way possible, it has a perfectly chewy texture and and crisp outside. The salty peanut butter is balanced by the perfect amount of sugar making sure that the peanut flavor shines to its full potential. A fantastic addition to these cookies could be some m&m’s or even white chocolate chips. These are really easy to make and they cook super fast so they can be thrown together in a flash. The only thing is I would have recommend is that you let them cool nearly fully before tucking in because it isn’t until they are cool that you can experience the amazing chewy texture. But if you really can’t resist just eat them anyway, you’ll still be able to appreciate the awesome flavor. 🙂


 Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

`1 1/2 cups plain flour

1tsp baking soda

1/2tsp salt

1/2 cup caster sugar

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

85g butter, softened

1 egg

1/2 cup peanut butter

1tsp vanilla extract

  • Preheat the oven to 180°c/350°f.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the two sugars and the butter until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg, peanut butter and vanilla until well combined.
  • Gently mix in the flour mixture until completely combined.
  • Take tablespoons of the dough and roll it into balls, place them on a large baking tray about 2″ apart. Use a fork to gently press down on each ball, making a criss cross pattern on the top of each.
  • Bake in the oven for about 12mins or until golden brown.
