Peanut Butter Cookies // These are the softest peanut butter cookies you'll ever try. If you like peanut butter, you've got to try these! | Tried and Tasty I love surfing the net finding new recipes and new recipe blogs. I needed to make a batch of cookies for our camping trip this weekend and I only wanted to use ingredients I had on hand, and go figure I didn’t have any chocolate chips! I looked a couple of different places for good peanut butter cookies and stumbled upon The Cook Next Door’s blog. I love it, she’s got a really cool format to her recipes. Simple, easy to understand, neat, and tasty! They turned out just as good as I imagined they would. I made a few alterations and I will be using this as my staple peanut butter cookie recipe :)

These are the softest peanut butter cookies you'll ever try. If you like peanut butter, you've got to try these!


  • 1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter softened
  • 1 c. peanut butter room temperature
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. peanut butter chips
  • 3/4 c. coarsely chopped dry roasted peanuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

  3.  In a large bowl, beat the butter and peanut butter together until smooth and creamy. Add the sugars, and beat until smooth. Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and vanilla. 

  4. Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in the peanut butter chips and peanuts.

  5. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet, a couple inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Do not over bake; cookies may appear to be undercooked but they are not. 

  6. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet one extra minute before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

    Thank you for the delightful peanut butter cookie receipe! I would love to receive your future shared recipes. Thank you, too, for your time in writing up the recipes and posting them for viewers. I was a newspaper writer and editor for many, many years, so I well know the time it takes just to compile and write the stories I posted. I don’t read blogs, thus the possibility of having these just sent to me is too appealing for me to lose out on! Again, my appreciation!

    Loved the recipie!
    We did not have the chopped peanuts, so I used crunchy peanut butter instead. Also, used chocolate chips instead of peanut butter chips (gotta have the chocolate!).

    Sooo yummy!
