Original recipe makes 2 dozen Change Servings


  1. In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter, peanut butter, milk and vanilla. Mix by hand about 3 minutes or until creamy.
  2. Thoroughly mix flour into creamy mix. Roll small balls of dough in hand, about 1 inch in diameter. Place on greased cookie sheet, approximately 3/4 inch apart. Using a fork, make criss cross pattern on cookie (this will flatten cookie partially). Be careful not to over flatten, dough should not touch each other.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) 18 to 25 minutes.

Very Good! I found that the recipe called for a lot of butter (plus peanut butter) so I halfed the amount of butter and the cookies came out lighter - a melt in your mouth kind! Yummy! PS - I baked them for around 9 minutes!

Good flavor but much too dry.

I didn't have any eggs and wanted to make some peanut butter cookies. I came across this recipe and I'm so glad I did! They were super easy and tasted great. My husband thought they were lighter and tasted better than the peanut butter blossoms I usually make. I followed the advice of the other reviewers and cut the baking time to 10-11 minutes and rolled them in sugar. These were great cookies with a good peanut butter flavor!

This is a great recipe when you have someone who can't eat eggs. Very easy and tasty. Make sure that you take them out of the oven when the edges start to brown. I dipped the top of the cookies in sugar before I pressed the fork in. My boyfriend could have eaten all of them in one day! Thank you for the recipe. I will make them again and again.

Your cookies taste fantastic though if your going to make them smaller you should take the 15 or 12 as i did but they were almost perfect!!

Was looking for something simple to make for husband's office christmas party. These were easy to make and everyone loved them. I did have to decrease the baking time after burning the bottom of the first batch!

Yum, these are delish! Mine took 20 mins to cook & they were perfect. Next time I will use crunchy peanut butter for that extra crunch (I only had smooth on hand).

These are very good cookies, especially for how simple the recipe is. I decreased the butter to 2/3 c. and added chocolate chips. Only baked them for about 10 minutes. Great peanut butter taste.
