Julia's Quick & Tasty Peanut Butter Cookies

With Julia Laxer

My eleven year old daughter Julia recently decided she wanted to make peanut butter cookies that would be perfectly sweet and with a nice, soft, chewy texture.

After doing some surfing around various recipes, she developed her own drawn from a couple of sources.

The measurements here will make 20-25 cookies, though the portions can, of course, be easily doubled.

It is also a very kid friendly recipe that it is both easy for kids to make and it is certain they will enjoy the fruits of their labours!

Julia preps the cookies

3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 heaping tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Take a heaping teaspoon of batter and form into small round balls and flatten with a fork (if fork is sticking to batter dip fork in sugar) pushing down in two opposite directions to make a cross pattern on the top of the cookie.

Ready to go in the oven

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 for 10 minutes until golden brown. Let sit until cooled, otherwise they will crumble.

These simple to make cookies are wonderfully moist and delicious.


  1. Thanks for that Julia - I'm making these soon.

  2. Great cookies, Julia! I've got to try them.
