Wonderfully addicting with lots of peanut butter flavor.
Watch out, these are addicting!!



  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Beat butter until soft.
  3. Add sugar and blend until creamy.
  4. Beat in egg, peanut butter, vanilla, salt and soda.
  5. Add flour and mix.
  6. Roll the dough into small balls.
  7. Place them on a greased cookie sheet and press them flat with a fork (don’t press too hard or you will break the cookie).

To get that buttery, melt-in-your-mouth effect, add 50% more peanut butter and bake them until they are barely brown on the top.
