Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 cup margarine or butter (I bake with margarine)
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2½ cups flour
  • Extra white sugar for coating, ~1/3 cup
  1. Preheat your oven to 375ºF and cream together margarine and peanut butter.
  2. Add in the sugars, baking soda and baking powder and beat until combined.
  3. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  4. Stir in flour and mix well. Chill dough for easier handling if desired.
  5. Take a cookie scoop or tablespoon to measure out some dough, roll it in your hands, coat with sugar (I like to place my sugar in a pie plate and roll it around), then place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Use stamp or fork to flatten cookies work just great.
  7. Bake at 375º for 7-9 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for at least 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack or they will fall apart.
