Course: Cookies
Servings: 12


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter Classic-style peanut butter is more dependable in this recipe (i.e. Jif, Peter Pan, Skippy. Natural peanut butters may not work as well in this recipe.)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 white sugar
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt


  • Pour all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir the ingredients with a large spoon. Combine all of the ingredients until completely mixed. This will take a minute or two.The dough will be be a little granular, but the sugar will dissolve into the dough while it chills.
  • Form into 2-Tablespoon mounds and place mounds on a large plate. You will get around 12 mounds.
  • Cover the plate with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at at least 3 hours. (The chilling process is crucial. Do not bake the dough warm.)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray or use parchment paper.
  • Place mounds on greased baking sheet at least 2 inches apart. Lightly flatten the mounds. Bake for 8 minutes or until edges are set and top is just set. (Do not over bake. These cookies will firm up when they cool)
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes.
  • Enjoy!


Unbaked cookie dough can be stored in an airtight container to up to 5 days in the refrigerator
