Make these quick and easy peanut butter cookies for a nutty dessert everyone will love.


  • 1 ½ cups crunchy peanut butter

  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar

  • ½ cup (1 stick) softened unsalted butter

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, beat peanut butter, sugar, and butter until smooth. Beat in egg. Gradually add flour mixture, beating to combine.

  3. Pinch off dough by the tablespoon; roll into balls. Place 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Using a fork, press balls in a crisscross pattern, flattening to a 1/2-inch thickness.

  4. Bake cookies, rotating halfway through, until lightly golden, 18 to 22 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
