Peanut Cookies

18 May

These are HANDS-DOWN one of the best Peanut Cookies you will EVER make in your life. I wouldnt joke around about Peanut Cookies.

Simple ingredients

For some reason, during the Christmas Holidays this year, I was so excited about my kitchenaid mixer, I decided to have a Peanut Cookie Cookoff with myself and pitted 2 recipes against each other. I found one online and it sounded decent to me, so I tried that. And then I tried the Peanut Cookie recipe my mom made growing up and included in our Family Recipe Book this year. I just wanted to see if it really WAS the best ever……

In the bowl of love

Oh baby i like it rawwwwww

I ended up with a batch of the best ever cookies and other peanut cookies that paled in comparison. I got rave reviews from everyone who tried them. They are just downright insane with how peanut buttery they taste with peanuts baked right in. They melt in your mouth but dont taste greasy like so many other Peanut Cookies do.

Poppin’ Fresh Out the Kitchen

I highly recommend you have your own peanut butter cookie cookoff – but just stick with THIS recipe and be happy! These are a total crowd-pleaser 🙂


Peanut Cookies


  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup peanuts


Preheat the oven to 350°.

Cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars with an electric mixer until light in color.

Add the egg and vanilla. Beat until well mixed.

Add the flour, baking soda, and peanuts. At low speed, mix until all traces of flour are gone and the batter seems well-mixed.

Drop tablespoonfuls of batter, 3 inches apart, onto a buttered cookie sheet. Press down lightly.

Bake for 12 minutes.

Yields: 18 large cookies
