Calories: 145kcal


  • 1 ⅓ cup 188g all-purpose flour (scoop and level to measure)
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup 113g unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup 105g granulated sugar
  • ½ cup 110g packed light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup 185g creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two 18 by 13-inch baking sheets with silicone baking liners or parchment paper.
  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until combined.
  • Mix in peanut butter then blend in egg and vanilla. With mixer set on low speed slowly add in flour mixture and mix just until combined.
  • Scoop dough out and shape into balls (30 grams each or nearly 2 Tbsp) then place on baking sheets spacing them 2-inches apart.
  • Using a long pronged fork flatten cookies slightly then turn fork going opposite direction and flatten just slightly again (it should create that criss cross pattern).
  • Bake cookies in preheated oven, one sheet at a time, for about 9 minutes (cookies will appear pale and slightly under-baked, they’ll continue to cook slightly as they cool).
  • Let cool on baking sheet 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store cookies and an airtight container.
