Peanut Butter Heaven Cookies

Alicia .


I don't remember where I got this recipe from, but it has been my go-to recipe for peanut butter cookies for the past several years. After making these I can't see myself using any other peanut butter recipe!

The picture isn't from my batch of cookies, if any survive long enough the next time I make them I'll post a picture.

    all-purpose flour

How to Make Peanut Butter Heaven Cookies


  1. In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, beat butter for about 30 seconds. Add sugars and mix until smooth.

    Add eggs and vanilla and mix until it starts to get fluffy.

    Stir in peanut butter.

    In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Stir into combined wet ingredients in portions.

    If you choose, stir in the finely chopped peanuts.

    Cover and chill for about 2 hours. I usually make my cookie dough the day before and let it chill overnight, but 2 hours is sufficient for these.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease your cookie sheets.

    Roll dough into about 1-inch round balls and place on cookie sheet, at least 2 inches apart.

    Using a fork that has been dipped in water, flatten the slightly. Sprinkle lightly with granulated or coarse sugar.

    Bake 12-15 minutes. I usually start checking at 10 minutes, they should look dry on top. Be very careful not to overcook!
  3. Allow cookies to cool a few minutes before moving them to cooling racks.

    Makes about 3 dozen cookies
