Well, we got peanut butter from Costco, therefore you can imagine how much peanut butter we have at home…so I decided to make cookies! We all have our favorite peanut butter cookies recipe, this one is a mix and match from many recipes and small changes were made. Like most of the peanut butter cookies recipes this one as well is a very simple recipe to follow. The cookies are so good…and here is what I did.


½ cup sugar, use ¼ cup if you like less sweet cookies
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup butter, room temperature
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt


In a medium bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients but the sugars.

In another bowl, add the butter, sugars, egg, milk and vanilla extract and cream for approximately 2~3 minutes. Then add the peanut butter and mix until well incorporated. Add the dry ingredients, and refrigerate the dough for approximately 3 hours. Once cold, pre heat the oven at 375F and remove the dough from the fridge and make 1 ¼ inch balls, flatten and using a wet fork make crisscross.

Bake for approximately 9 to 10 minutes, and cool on baking sheet.

Did you know that the skin of the peanut contain resveratrol? Resveratrol is a compound found mainly in the skin of the grapes which is believed to have an anti aging, anti cancer and cardioprotective properties.
