  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature (1 cup = 2 sticks)
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar plus for more coating
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Maldon sea salt for garnish


  • In a large bowl or stand mixer bowl, cream butter, both peanut butters, and both sugars together until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes.)
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • Add in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and beat until combined.
  • Cover bowl with saran wrap and place in fridge for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line 4 baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
  • Pour additional granulated sugar into a medium-sized bowl (start with 1/2 cup - you can always add more.) Set aside.
  • Use a small cookie scoop to scoop dough, roll generously in granulated sugar, then place onto prepared baking sheet (you'll have 12 cookies per sheet).
  • Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until cookies begin to brown.
  • Remove from oven, then sprinkle with Maldon sea salt.
  • Cool slightly on baking sheet before transferring them to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling. Repeat with remaining cookies and enjoy!
