  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups AP flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Cream butter and sugar together, about 1 minute. 

  2. Add the peanut butter and cream together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. 

  3. Add the egg, milk and vanilla and mix until combined.

  4. Add flour, baking soda, and salt.

  5.  mix until just combined and all the flour is incorporated.

  6. Scoop 1-inch balls onto a greased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. When the cookies are done, remove from oven. I like to press 3-4 chocolate chips gently into the center to finish them.
