The best peanut butter cookies to make with your kids

These are the best peanut butter cookies to make with your kids.

That is a big statement to make, but I stand by it.  When it comes to making something with young children it should be easy and straight forward.  It is more fun for them and less stressful for the adults with them.  My daughter loves cracking open eggs and mixing the batter.  She is able to mix up this cookie recipe with very little problems and almost zero mess. Another bonus for me!  Portioning out the little balls is still somewhat challenging, so that’s where mom comes in.

I’m surprised that this recipe is not more widely available, but it does pop up more and more often.  The texture is a little crisp, just a little chewy.  I like to make these cookies with crunchy peanut butter.  Having small little pieces of peanuts through the cookie makes them even better.

The origin of this recipe remains a mystery to me.  Feel free to comment if you think you know where it comes from. 

You most likely have all the ingredients in your pantry so why not try them out today?

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Peanut butter (250 gram)
  • 1 cup White granulated sugar (200 gram)
  • 1 each Egg Large

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius / 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Combine the peanut butter, sugar and egg in a mixing bowl.  

  3. Mix together with a fork or spoon.  I prefer a fork when mixing a single batch.

  4. Roll the dough into balls approximately 3cm wide.   Place on prepared baking sheet.

  5. Flatten dough balls with a fork.  You can add a cross hatch for a decorative touch.

  6. Baking in preheated oven for approximately 12 minutes.  The cookie should be a light golden brown.  They burn easily so do watch them from 10 minutes on.

Recipe Notes

For a vegan alternative substitute the egg with a flax egg.
