  • 1 cup (250 g) creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup (125 g) chunky peanut butter
  • ½ cup (1 stick / 113g) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cups (160 g) all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • cup granulated sugar, for rolling cookies


  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190 degrees C).
  • In a large bowl, cream together the peanut butters, butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until well blended.
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into creamed mixture.
  • Scoop dough into balls. (I used a 3-tablespoon scoop). Roll each dough ball in granulated sugar.
  • Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Press each ball once with crisscrossing fork tines.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are lightly browned. Do not overbake!
