  • 1 Cup Butter, Softened
  • 1 1/3 Cup Granulated Sugar, Divided
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 4 Cups All Purpose Flour


  • Preheat oven to 350º.
  • In a large bowl cream together butter, 1 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar and peanut butter.
  • Add in eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  • Stir in baking soda, salt and flour and combine until just incorporated.
  • Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. *I use a 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop to make sure all cookies are the same size.
  • Roll each dough ball in remaining 1/3 cup sugar and place onto a cookie sheet.  12 per cookie sheet evenly spaced out.
  • Use the side of a fork to make indented lines on top of the cookie creating a criss cross pattern.
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes. You only want a hint of golden brown on top.
  • Repeat with remaining cookies.
  • Once cooled store in an airtight container.
