Classic Peanut Butter Cookies




Yield 24 cookies

These classic peanut butter cookies are thick, chewy on the outside, and melt-in-your-mouth tender in the middle. The ingredients are simple and they always come together flawlessly.



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream together the 1/2 C butter, 1/2 C sugar, 1/2 C brown sugar, and 1/2 C peanut butter till smooth and pale in color.
  3. Add egg and 1 tsp vanilla extract
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together the dry ingredients: 1 C all purpose flour, 1/2 C cake flour, 2 tsp cornstarch, 1 tsp baking soda, and 1/2 tsp salt.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the butter/ sugar mixture. Make sure not to OVERMIX. Mix till all of the dry ingredients are just incorporated.
  6. Scoop 1 tbsp portions onto a lined baking sheet. If using crystalized sugar, sprinkle some on the top before baking.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes. The edges will be slightly brown and the top still light in color! Let cool for 6 minutes.
  8. Drizzle with melted chocolates once cooled.


** if cake flour is unavailable, you could always use  1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour. They just wont be quite as thick.
