peanut butter cookies
July 17, 2013 § 50 Comments
I keep finding myself in the kitchen replicating recipes I find on all the wonderful blogs I read. Pretty soon I may have to start a section on my blog for “featured blog recipes”. I found this recipe at homemadedelish the other day and I used up a whole jar of peanut butter making two batches! No flour in these peanut butter cookies! These cookies are so soft, chewy, nutty, sweet and salty. I am not much of a baker, however, I am trying to change. My son loves baked goods so much and I feel as though I am depriving him of so many good homemade treats. It sure would be better than store-bought cookies, hand pies and puddings. He actually made the second batch!
- 1 cup all natural creamy peanut butter (I used Adam’s)
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup salted blister peanuts, crushed
- 1/8 cup sugar for fork print
Preheat oven 350°. Mix all ingredients in a medium size bowl. Roll little balls of dough in the palms of your hand, then roll along your crushed peanuts. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Dip a fork into sugar and “stamp” each ball to flatten into a cookie shape. Bake for 12 minutes.
Serve with a cold glass of milk.

In France people usually only know of roasted, oversalted peanuts, and only eat them as an apéritif at gatherings or sprinkled over Asian noodles. Most people I know in France either have no idea what peanut butter is, or hate it! I suppose it is my American roots, but I absolutely adore peanut butter! Perhaps these cookies might make my friends change their mind!
Or at the very least “snicker” a little. :) It would be fun to see.
My daughter lived in France for a year during high school and said the exact thing! Then she introduced her host family to her peanut butter cookies and they were hooked :) I hope your friends changed their mind.. if not, then more for you!
i’m impressed. 6 ingredients, 6 sentences of instructions, and some truly beautiful cookies. you epitomize the phrase “brevity is the soul of wit.” :)
i’m going to have to try to adapt this recipe to almond butter / slivered almonds (because i have a few friends with epic peanut allergies). do you think these little guys would be doable in a toaster oven?
For sure! I thought about peanut allergies and perhaps a better post would have been to make them with almonds as well…then posted both recipes! So, if you make them with almonds…and they turn out…post them and I’ll edit my post with a link to your blog! :)
Seana! I don’t usually eat peanut butter (in fact i can’t remember the last time I ate it!) but this looks good, plus sounds so incredibly easy to make! I’ve bookmarked it…hope I’ll put it to good use soon!
lots of love,
We go through stages of eating peanut butter. Actually we have been in a non-stage lately and I have a feeling these cookies were a restart button. We do a few juice / raw food cleanses every year and nut butters are always so good. I get hooked on celery and peanut butter when we do these cleanses! :) This recipe is a must do because without flour it really create a nice chewy soft consistency. You’ll love them.
I just made them tonight!!! They turned out amazing!! Thanks so much for the recipe Seana!
Really? I’m so happy to hear this! That is exactly what I did…I saw the post and made them that day. Than again the next day! :) used up the whole jar of peanut butter so I’ll have to get some more…. so glad you liked them.
we must be on a similar wavelength, I’m going to try out a peanut butter cookie recipe I came across on a fantastic food blog tomorrow :)
ooooh. Do share it!
if they taste good, will do! (the dough was really good :P I’ve been holding off until tonight to try them baked)
They sound delicious. I never have peanut butter but I think I need to get some:)
Yes you should go get some peanut butter and make these cookies….now. :) They are simply delicious.
Yummy – I absolutely LOVE peanut butter cookies. I know – I shouldn’t but I can’t help my little piggy self. I don’t get them often but when I do, I have a tendency to pig out – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
ha! I can only imagine.
I have been meaning to try flourless PB cookies, I love peanut butter and cookies especially, these sound delish!!
They really are delicious! I was surprised how chewy and soft they were. I’ll never make peanut butter cookies with flour again. :)
– My husband loves peanut butter (me too :D ). I shall surprise him with this.
– Every time I visit your blog, I think what a clean and brilliant blog theme you have. I love it!
Thank you so much Fae. I really like this theme too. I like the clean lines and simplicity of it. (Do surprise your husband with these cookies! He’ll love them)
We love peanut butter cookies in our house.This looks like a great recipe to try for a variation.
It really is a good peanut butter cookie recipe. Especially because it does not have flour. Try it. You ‘ll be pleased.
Mouth watering and probably addictive. The reason we went on holiday for a week was to cook all the food blogging recipes I’ve been collecting. Such great food out there!
I know…too many recipes too few days of the week. I have to watch myself because if I am going to maintain a food blog I need to cook my own creations too in order to post something new! :) Looked like Ruby had a wonderful time on vacation! Loved your posts while you were away.
I love easy cookie recipes. This sounds delicious! A glass of milk with this and I’m a happy camper. :)
I printed the recipe! Its easy, and looks delicious!
Thanks for sharing,
great. hope you make them! thank you for stopping by. :)
I’ll leave a comment when I made them.
I’ll let you know if they worked out as good as yours :)
I am excited to try these! They sound wonderful!
My daughter Charlotte loves PB cookies and I will definitely get her to try these out as she’s the baker of PB cookies in our household. They look delish!
Great! My son is 15 and he went “nuts” over these. He kept asking me to make them again and I finally sent him into the kitchen to make them! It was so fun chatting with him while he made them! Charlotte will love them, I’m sure.
These cookies sound super easy…I better buy a jar of peanut butter.
It would be worth a special trip to the store to get peanut butter. ;) Nice to hear from you Karen!
It is definitely worth a trip. We have house guests at the lake almost every week. It would be nice to have a container of these for everyone to munch on. :)
I love how easy these cookies seem, plus I have all the ingredients right in my kitchen. Thanks!
Do make them. You’ll be pleased. Thank you for your comment… :)
These sound like candy! What exactly are salted blister peanuts?
Hi there! Well, according to my package of blister peanuts…” Generations ago folks soaked peanuts in water to remove the red skins prior to roasting. This caused the peanuts to “blister” during roasting resulting in an incomparably crunchy nut.” Interesting huh?!
Peanut butter was my favorite food discovery when we moved to the U.S. and I’ve not outgrown the love affair.
No cookies for this little piggy for awhile yet (or a good while let’s be honest) BUT I absolutely will make this as a treat for a couple of my favorite kids. They will love it I just know.
That is so true for me too with peanut butter. I am so on and off in my relationship with it. I, too, am in an off stage, but I must say after a bite I did eat a few too many of these. :)
I don’t take a lot of cookies but peanut butter always works for me and yours look so good. I would love to try it :)
These sound so wonderful Seana! Such simplicity always leads to complete brilliance in my mind :) I love peanut butter cookies. Weirdly, I’ve never made them in my own kitchen. I think that needs to change! x
What an interesting recipe. I shall definitely try them out for myself. Thank you.
Hi! Yes you definitely should make these. They’re very good and so easy too. You have a lovely blog btw. :)
Thank you. It is early days and I am just feeling my way.

Nice crunchy element with the peanuts + dash of color with the powdered sugar. :-)
These look great, tinywhitecottage. I’ll put them on my cookie-baking rotation. :)
