Peanut Butter Cookies

Looking for very peanut buttery peanut butter cookies? Look no farther. I modified these from a recipe we've been making since we were married. It's a very easy recipe. 

½ cup softened Earth Balance butter
½ cup peanut butter (only nuts, no other ingredients)
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 Ener-G egg or flax egg (1 Tbsp flax meal)

1 ¼ cup flour
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt


  1. Soften butter as long as necessary.
  2. Make the Ener-G egg or flax egg.
  3. Preheat oven to 350º.
  4. Cream butter, sugars, peanut butter, and Ener-G egg together.
  5. Stir in dry ingredients. 
  6. Roll into balls and distribute on cookie sheet. 
  7. Dip fork in four and crisscross over each cookie ball. 
  8. Bake at 350º for 10 to 12 minutes. 
  9. Watch! These go from not-quite-done to overdone in less than 1 minute!


  • Both the Ener-G egg and flax egg work. However, the Ener-G egg lets the peanut butter flavor shine through more.
