Peanut Butter Cookies

Course Cookies, Dessert


  • 1/2 cup margarine room temperature
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter creamy
  • 1/2 cup sugar plus additional for rolling cookies in before baking
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract pure
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine margarine, peanut butter, sugars, egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl sift together dry ingredients and add to wet mixture.
  4. Form into small balls, roll in remaining sugar and flatten with a fork creating a crisscross design.

  5. Bake 10-12 minutes

  6. Also, be careful not to over-bake. These cookies are best when they're a little under-done.

Recipe Notes

You can substitute butter for the margarine, but I actually prefer the margarine in this recipe.
