CPT: Cookies So Good, It’s Hard to Stop Eating Them

CPT: Cookies So Good, It’s Hard to Stop Eating Them

When it comes to most desserts, it’s hard to go wrong. It’s even better when a delicious dessert recipe is easy to make, only needs a handful of ingredients, and can be made in a short period of time.

Let us present you with this delicious recipe: Easy Peanut Butter Cookies! Only six ingredients (plus one more if you’re a chocolate fan) and less than 15 minutes in the oven!

You may have tasted this recipe or a variation of it’s a classic. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a try yourself!

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt 


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together peanut butter, egg, sugar, baking soda, vanilla, if using, and salt until well combined.
  • Using a 1 3/4-inch scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. Using the tines of a fork, gently press down on each scoop in a crosshatch pattern. Sprinkle with sugar and transfer baking sheet to oven. Bake until slightly puffed, 11 to 12 minutes. Cookies will still be soft. Let cool for 5 minutes. Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely.
