The Best Peanut Butter Cookie

Deb Kotansky


You will note, these cookies have no flour. Since I found this recipe I don't make PB cookies any other way. As is, this single recipie doesn't make very many cookies. It is so easy to double, triple..

How to Make The Best Peanut Butter Cookie


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix well.
    I put mix in the fridge for about 20 minutes so it will firm up a bit, and return it to fridge in between batches.
  3. Make 1-inch balls (I roll them with my hands). Place on cookie sheet sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Criss-cross them with fork dipped in glass of water often.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes until bottoms are a golden brown. Cookies are fragile when they are hot. Let sit on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then remove with a spatula onto wax paper to finish cooling.
  5. Tip: The easiest way I have found to measure peanut butter is to use a glass measuring cup (I use a 4-cup). I put 2 cups of water into it then drop the peanut butter into the water until the water rises to the 3-cup mark for one cup of peanut butter or to the 4-cup mark for two cups. Pour off the water and the peanut butter will fall right out of the cup. No scraping the cup and very little waste.
