Nana’s Peanut Butter Cookies



I found this recipe written on a piece of paper in my grandmother’s 1954 copy of Betty Crocker’s Good and Easy Cookbook. I’ve published a few peanut butter cookies recipes on here, but curiosity got the better of me, and I whipped up a batch on Saturday morning. Not only are they easy to make, these cookies are soft, chewy, and full of peanut buttery goodness! 

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

1. Preheat oven to 350º. In a large bowl, cream butter with both sugars. Mix in the peanut butter, then add the egg and vanilla.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda – then add to the butter/sugar mixture.

3. Scoop dough by the tablespoon on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Makes two dozen cookies.
