Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

The best thing about these cookies is that you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry right now, and they come together in just a few minutes. Oh, and they are delicious. They have a chewy texture and strong peanut butter flavor. They would also be good with chocolate chips or even dipped in chocolate!

Ingredients:(adapted from Joy the Baker)
  • 1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter (I used Jif creamy)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, stir together peanut butter and sugars until well combined.  Add egg, salt, and baking soda and stir until completely incorporated.  
  4. Roll into tablespoon-sized balls and create a cris-cross pattern with a fork. 
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned.  
  6. Slide parchment paper off baking sheet and let cool for at least 10 minutes, and enjoy!
