  • Mixing bowls
  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Baking sheets
  • Parchment paper
  • Fork or cookie press for creating a crisscross pattern


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Additional granulated sugar for rolling optional


Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cream Butter and Sugars:

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Add Eggs, Peanut Butter, and Vanilla:

  • Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the creamy peanut butter and vanilla extract, and mix until well combined.

Combine Dry Ingredients:

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients:

  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix.

Shape and Roll Dough:

  • Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of dough and roll them into balls. If desired, roll the balls in additional granulated sugar for a slightly crunchy exterior.

Create Cookie Shapes:

  • Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving space between each. Use a fork or cookie press to create a crisscross pattern on the top of each cookie.


  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. The cookies will continue to firm up as they cool.


  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Once cooled, indulge in the classic taste of peanut butter perfection!
