A Great Snack For After School


Peanut Butter Cookies


  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped


Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and peanut butter

Gradually add the sugar and beat well. Add the beaten egg, a little at a time, beating until it is thoroughly combined. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the peanut butter mixture.

Add the peanuts and bring all of the ingredients together to form a soft dough. Wrap and chill for about 30 minutes. Form the dough into 20 balls and place them onto the prepared cookie sheets about 2 inches apart to allow for spreading. Flatten them slightly with a fork. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes, until golden brown color. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and cool slightly before serving.
