Sweet peanut butter cookies

Hubby has figured out a new trick: we can pretty much make cookies any time we want just from the random stuff we have in the house. He knows I LOVE dessert so it's hard for me to refuse when he wants to bake for me! Anyway, he made these really yummy peanut butter cookies the other day and I had to share them with you.

• 1 c sugar
• 1/2 c butter
• 1/2 c peanut butter
• 1 egg
• 1 1/4 c flour
• 3/4 t baking soda
• 1/2 t baking powder
• 1/4 t salt

Preheat the oven to 300.

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Form a ball with the dough and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate the ball for at least 30 minutes.

When you're ready to bake the cookies, use a tablespoon to create small balls of cookie dough and place on a lightly-greased baking sheet.

Bake at 300 for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

These are amazing dipped in cold milk!


  1. I do the whole "I want a treat, what can I make without visiting the store" thing.

    In fact a while back I ended up making Almond Butter cookies because I had picked up three jars of almond butter for $2 each [they are normally at least $8-10] and then realized I could never eat that much almond butter before it all expired.

    I used a peanut butter cookie recipe and just used the almond butter instead. It was amazing!

  2. They look yummy. How sweet of your hubby to make them for you all :)

  3. Yum! I have a weakness for peanut butter cookies. :)
