  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter either creamy or crunchy I like maximum crunch!
  • 1 cup light brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 extra large eggs room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup salted roasted peanuts, lightly toasted and chopped (really need to chop with chef's knife, processing them will easily make the pieces too small).


  • Cookie24Prcookies eheat oven to 350
  • Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Cream butter until light and fluffy the add peanut butter and mix until blended.
  • Add both sugars and mix well. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the dry ingredients a cup at a time, scraping the bowl after each addition.
  • Add half of the toasted peanuts to the mixture and mix just until incorporated.
  • Using a tablespoon to measure dough, roll each spoonful into balls and place on baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Dip large fork into warm water, blot and press each cookie slightly to flatten it; repeat in opposite direction (The warm water will help to keep the fork from sticking to the dough). Sprinkle remaining peanuts on the top of each cookie.
  • Bake for 7 minutes/ alternate cookie sheets on baking racks and bake for another 7 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cool on baking sheets; remove sheets and allow to completely cook at room temp.
