Super easy and super yummy!

What you need:

  • Medium size bowl
  • Smaller bowl
  • Electric mixer or pastry blender or even a good ole fork will work
  • Cookie tray – non stick preferably
  • Tin foil or parchment paper
  • Measuring cups & spoons
  • Oven


  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) Peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) Butter or Margarine
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) White sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) Brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup (300 ml) Flour (white or whole wheat)
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) Baking soda
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chip or your other favorite (optional)

How to make it:

  • Turn oven onto 375 F
  • Add the peanut butter, butter or margarine, white sugar, brown sugar and egg to a medium size bowl and blend using a mixer until smooth and mixed together.
  • In smaller bowl, add the flour, baking powder and baking soda.  Mix well.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Add the optional Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chip or other favorite to the mix and mix well.
  • Put a little flour on your hands.  Reach into the cookie dough and roll dough into balls of about an inch.  Place the round dough on the cookie sheet and use a fork to squish them down in a horizontal and then vertical pattern.  You can top each cookie off with extra Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chips or even a peanut!  Heck it’s your cookie, add what you love!
  • Bake the cookies at 375 F for around 10 – 12 minutes until they are golden brown and yummy looking.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven when done and yes they will be soft but will firm up when they cool.
  • This recipe makes about 3.5 dozen regular size cookies but if you want to make them bigger, go right ahead!
  • Enjoy the smell of your house with that yummy peanut butter cookie scent!
