Mary's Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
By M L mcmaven
If I had to choose a "signature" recipe, this would be it. I've been making these since I was a teenager... because they're simply the softest, best-tasting peanut butter cookies I've ever had!
This is a great soft peanut butter cookie! My husband’s comment was that the peanut butter taste was not so overwhelming as most cookies of this type... very nice.

Thanks for this recipe. I only know how to make crunchy peanut butter cookies. My kids will be so happy now!

I made these today and they are really very good. The only thing I messed up on is I followed the recipe in order and didn't realiz I was supposed to save some extra sugar to put in later. Even with that mistake they were still really good. How much sugar should I have put aside and which sugar?

Hi Sharon, glad you liked the cookies! Sorry for any confusion... all of the sugar in the ingredients goes into the actual recipe. Additional white sugar is needed to roll the cookies in before baking. I'll add that to the ingredients list! Thanks.

Hi Mary, thanks for the clarification. I didn't roll these in sugar before I baked them but will do so next time. They were still really good even with that step left out. Thanks!

This looks like another winner from your kitchen!
I would love to make these for my friends and parents. :-) I love the easy to remember even proportions too. :-)
Have you ever made these with chocolate chips?
