  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp sugar (optional-to sprinkle on top)


  • Combine peanut butter, vanilla, dark brown sugar and egg using a hand mixer.
  • Use a cookie scoop and then roll into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    Once all cookies are rolled use a fork to create criss-cross on each cookie and then lightly sprinkle cookies with sugar.
  • Cook at 350 for 10-12 minutes.


  • Do not over-bake these cookies!  They will still be a bit soft when you pull them from the oven, that's ok.  Allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet.
  • I have tested this recipe with natural peanut butter and Jif, and they taste better and are less crumbly with Jif.
