  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a medium bowl, cream together softened butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Mix in egg, milk, and vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix into the peanut butter mixture until well blended. Use a cookie scoop to spoon the dough, roll the dough into a ball, then use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern.
  • Bake 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.


If you have leftover dough, these peanut butter cookies freeze very well to bake at a later time. Simply roll them into balls and store them in an airtight storage bag and pop them in the freezer. When you are ready to bake, lay them out on a baking sheet and let sit for a bit, to flatten with a fork.
