SOFT Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup demerera sugar
  •  2 egg
  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Line a few cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Use an electric mixer to combine the butter and peanut butter until smooth.
  4. Add both sugars and the egg, mix until combined.
  5. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix until a soft dough forms.
  7. Use a small cookie scoop and place dough at least 2 inches apart on the lined cookie sheets. (I use a cookies scoop that’s 1 5/8″.
  8. Bake the cookies for approx 8 to 9 minutes. (The trick to keeping these cookies soft is to not over bake them.)
  9. Remove the cookies from the oven and slide them onto a cool countertop. (keeping the cookies on the parchment)


      10. They will firm up as they cool. Don’t stack them into containers until they are completely cooled off.

**Makes approx 50 cookies.

Here’s the cookie scoop I use to make normal sized cookies, it’s 1 5/8″.
My husband bought me these air-bake T-Fal cookie sheets with no edges, so it’s easier to slide the cookies off onto the counter to cool.
