Peanut Butter Cookies


These super simple Peanut Butter Cookies, that I found on Pinterest , are absolutely delicious! I’m definitely not the baker in the family and rarely attempt to make much more than a boxed cake for my husbands birthday. However, the cookie jar that sits atop our microwave has been almost begging to be filled- or maybe it’s just me that constantly looks at it and craves a super soft delicious treat. Either way, it was time to find a recipe that I could pull off from prep to clean-up without taking over Reagan’s entire nap time.
If you like peanut butter, have minimal time to spare and are in need of a delicious treat, then this is the recipe for you! According to the site that I found this on, the calculated calories per cookie are around 80. But honestly, who really knows and if your yielding two dozen that will be sitting in a jar in your kitchen, begging to be eaten…who’s really counting????


1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix 1 cup peanut butter and 1 cup sugar

Add into mixture 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon baking soda and mix until combine.


Roll dough into balls. The size of the ball depends on the size of cookie that you want- the bigger the ball, the larger the cookie. Bake on a cookie sheet for 11 minutes.
Make good use of your time and boil sippy cup parts while your cookies are baking!

Super easy and delicious!

My cookie jar is no longer lonely…
