Peanut Butter Sandies

1 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup flour
1 cup light brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, beat together sugar and peanut butter. Slowly add flour and mix until thoroughly combined. Using your hands, roll about a tablespoons of dough together into a ball. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and press slightly to flatten. Bake 8 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly golden. Allow to cool on the sheet for about 5 minutes then carefully remove to wire racks to continue to cool. It is best to allow them to cool completely before eating, they “set” while they cool.

My thoughts:

These are super easy (and vegan) cookies. They have a crumbly, some what sandy texture. I don’t generally eat much peanut butter but these cookies are tasty!


  1. oh wow! These look too easy to be true! Do you think they would work with ‘natural’ peanut butter? I’m afraid the oil might separate and create a mess.

  2. I wouldn’t recommend using natural peanut butter unless you found a kind that doesn’t seperate. I don’t think it would stay together properly.

  3. How easy and beautiful looking! Yum!

  4. That’s a great pic, very clean.

  5. Love this photo and I love peanut butter cookies! Happy Halloween!
