remember nutter butters?! those cute little peanut shaped cookies. these are a flour based peanut butter cookie as opposed to the classic three-ingredient peanut butter cookies. if baked correctly they produce a crisp outside, and soft inside. eat them plain, with peanut butter or sandwich your favourite jam in between them so you can yell "ITS PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME".


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (i used kraft)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter or jam to sandwich in between

  2. in the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. add egg and vanilla, until well incorporated.
  4. on low speed, sift in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. on a greased cookie sheet place balls of dough and squish with a fork to get the criss-cross design.
