Soft And Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Bake the best chewy peanut butter cookies with a perfectly soft center and crisp edges!

  • Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 50 g Salted butter
  • 80 g Creamy peanut butter
  • 40 g Brown sugar
  • 20 g Castor sugar
  • 30 g Eggs
  • ½ tsp Vanilla essence
  • 110 g All-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp Baking powder


  1. Place the softened salted butter and peanut butter in a large bowl. Mix both kinds of butter until they turn smooth. You can either use a spatula or an electric beater for the recipe.
  2. Now add both the sugars, i.e., castor sugar and brown sugar, to the smooth butter mixture and start creaming until the mixture turns pale and fluffy.
  3. Once the butter turns pale and fluffy, add the egg and vanilla essence and mix again.
  4. Now we’ll sift in the remaining dry ingredients, i.e., all-purpose flour and baking powder, and combine to form a dough. You can use a spatula or your hands to combine the dough.
  5. Divide the cookie dough into 40 g balls. Place the balls on a lined baking tray and flatten them a bit. Now garnish the cookies with some peanuts on top.
  6. Now freeze the cookies for around 15 – 20 minutes before baking. This step will ensure that the cookies do not spread too much while baking.
  7. Once the cookies are out of the freezer, bake them in a preheated oven at 180°C (OTG MODE: upper rod + lower rod + fan) for 12 – 15 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown in color.
  8. Our cookies are now ready! Let them cool down a bit, and then enjoy them with a warm cup of milk.
