Peanut Butter Cookie - the only recipe you'll ever need

There are only two reasons I don't make these often.  First, I usually consume an asinine amount of raw dough. Second, this recipe makes a lot of cookies (about 3-4 dozen) and I get lazy after the second batch and usually throw the rest away, leaving me feeling guilty about wasting ingredients and the time it took to mix it all up. Yes, I know I could save it, but this just isn't me. Oh wait there is a third reason.  Cleaning out the little measuring cup and spatula used for the peanut butter eats away at my soul. This recipe came from my grandma.  The angel woman.

this is what things look like at their best.

The best thing about this recipe is you literally put it all in a bowl and mix it and bake it.  No separate bowls and slowly sift this into that bla bla bla.  I am NOT an expert baker and if I can do this, so can you. This sounds like a kitchen version of my Jillian Michaels workout DVD.


So, here it is.


  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. melted butter
  • 1 c. peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 c. flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda

Mix all ingredients with a hand mixer on medium.  Form into one inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Flatten with a fork.  Bake at 375 until light brown (about 12-13 minutes).

That's it.
