  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter, optional, can substitute for smooth, for a total of 3/4 cup
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt until smooth.
  3. Stir in egg and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Scoop dough by the tablespoon and place on a prepared cookie sheet.
  5. Using the back of a fork, gently press down on the tops of the cookies crossways to flatten (optional - I didn't do this).
  6. Lightly sprinkle the tops of the cookies with granulated sugar (optional). You can also roll them in sugar before you press them with a fork.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating halfway through.
  8. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies will be very delicate until fully cool.
