How to Make The Best Peanut Butter Cookie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheets with no-stick spray or use parchment paper or silpat.
  2. In a bowl with an electric mixer beat together peanut butter and sugar until combined.
  3. Beat in egg and baking soda until combined.
  4. Measure out heaping teaspoonsful of the dough, roll into balls (about 1 - 1 1/2" in diameter). Place on baking sheet about 1 inch apart.
  5. With the tines of a fork, flatten balls, making a crisscross pattern.
  6. Bake in the middle of the oven until pale golden, about 10 minutes. (for crisper cookies, bake 1 minute longer)
  7. Cool cookies on baking sheet 2 minutes. Then, transfer to racks to cool completely.
