peanut butter cookies February 24 2016

March 1st is “National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day”!   For me, that’s every day…  In celebration, here is a five-ingredient, easy peasy Peanut Butter Cookie recipe that you’ll go nuts for!

What You’ll Need

  • 2 cups / 1 jar of chunky or creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 ½ cup of packed Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract


What You’ll Do

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Line your baking sheets with parchment paper to prevent cookies from sticking to pan (and for easy clean-up!)
  • Add Peanut Butter, Brown Sugar, Eggs, Baking Soda and Vanilla Extract to a large mixing bowl
  • Beat the ingredients with either an electric mixer or a large spoon (I find the spoon easier to clean)
  • Drop teaspoons of cookie dough onto the parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them 1 ½ inch apart to allow for spreading
  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until cookies puff and edges begin to brown
  • Let them cool for 5 minutes and transfer to a rack to cool (or plate to eat!)
  • Enjoy!
