Peanut Butter Cookies in 1…2…3!


We Americans LOVE our peanut butter and we practically invented the modern cookie, so what could be more natural than a marriage between the two?!? With peanut butter now readily available in France, a reunion is definitely in order. Here’s a recipe that our French friends, Michaël & Aline from MaybeSomeCakes were kind enough to share with us:





  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a another bowl, beat together the softened butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Add the egg to this mixture and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Combine this mixture with the dry ingredients in the first bowl and mix well.
  5. Add the peanut butter and mix, preferably with an electric mixture, but a good old-fashioned wooden spoon works just as well.
  6. Make balls (approximately the size of a ping pong ball) and place them on a baking sheet covered with no-stick baking paper.
  7. Using the edge of a fork, press the dough to reproduce the characteristic, decorative grid design (see above photo).
  8. Bake cookies for 10 minutes or until slightly golden.
  9. After removing the cookies from the oven, let them sit for a couple of minutes before placing them on a cooling rack.

    Love peanut butter cookies! But which picture above is accurate? The one above the recipe is a completely different type of peanut butter cookie than the one below the picture. Thick vs. thin…
