How To Make peanut butter cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. (Just my preference)
  • 2
    In a mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.
  • 3
    Add vanilla and egg; beat until light and fluffy.
  • 4
    Sift flour and salt over the creamed mixture and blend into other ingredients thoroughly.
  • 5
    Form into 1 inch balls and place on prepared cookie sheet.
  • 6
    Press down the balls with the tines of a fork.
  • 7
    Bake in preheated oven for about 12-14 minutes, or just until golden brown.
  • 8
    It is a good idea to check bottoms of cookies for doneness before entire baking time is finished. These cookies will harden as they cool, and you don't want to overbake them!
