Small Batch Peanut Butter Cookies

If you're looking for a small batch peanut butter cookies recipe, this one makes exactly six cookies that taste like they're right from your grandma's oven. 

My grandma never made chocolate chip cookies. In fact, out of all the baking she did, there were actually very little cookies to be had. She did however make these peanut butter cookies quite a few times in my childhood, and I think of her every time I make them. This small batch peanut butter cookies recipe makes six cookies, which is the perfect amount if you're making them for yourself, or a small treat for your family.

Small Batch Peanut Butter Cookies: 

This peanut butter cookie recipe is a paired down version of the classic recipe everyone is familiar with. You use equal parts sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, and butter, mixed with, egg, baking soda, vanilla, and flour. You use a fork to give them that signature criss cross pattern, and then bake in the oven for 8 minutes. A small batch of nostalgia in your own kitchen.

Best Peanut Butter for Cookies:

There are a lot of bloggers that will tell you to purchase only Jiff peanut butter for cookies. I've used generic brands, Skippy, organic, non-organic and they've all had the same results. I think you should be more concerned about consistency than brand. If it has the same consistency as classic peanut butter you're set. I would steer away from the all natural peanut butters that require you to mix in the oil. Any normal creamy peanut butter will be great!

Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 8 MinTotal time: 18 Min

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbsp White Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Egg, whisked
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375º.
  2. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the butter, peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar and egg using and electric mixer. 
  3. Next, add in the baking soda, vanilla, and salt. Mix with the mixer again until it's well combine, using a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides as needed.
  4. Finally, add in the flour and mix again until just combined, and then stop. Don't over mix the mixture. 
  5. Using a 1 1/2 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop the batter into six equal size balls. Roll them into a ball with your hands, and then set them on a cookie sheet two inches apart. 
  6. Using the back of a fork, make a criss cross pattern on the cookies, pressing them down gently to flatten them into a cookie shape. 
  7. Bake in the oven for eight minutes and then remove from oven. They will appear under baked, but allow them to cool completely on the pan. They will firm up in this time, and be completely fine to pick up without breaking once they're cooled.
