Holiday Cookies: Peanut Butter Cookies

peanut butter cookies

Back in October of 2008, Parents magazine shared a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies that only required three ingredients. I tried it and it was great. Now, it’s my “go to” peanut butter cookie recipe. Then, I just add fun extras to make them special. I don’t see the recipe on, so here’s my version…


Recipe Notes:

-The chocolate and sea salt toppings take these cookies to a greater taste level.  Simply melt the best chocolate that you can find (I prefer milk chocolate) according to the package directions.  Using a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over the warm peanut butter cookies. Then, sprinkle a light dusting of sea salt over the peanut butter and chocolate cookies.  Let the cookies cool in the refrigerator for approximately 20 minutes. They are amazing.

-This is a fun cookie recipe to make with your kids. They can do most of the work!

    What a great recipe! My boys will love these. I have never made PB cookies with a sea salt topping before – I have always just done sugar toppings or colored sugar. I cannot wait to try this!
