Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies – Light & Chewy

This is my mother-in-law’s Soft Peanut Butter Cookies recipe. She was always baking and this is one of my favorite recipes she had. Yummo!


I could just eat the dough! It’s so light and fluffy with just the right amount of peanut butter.

The best peanut butter cookie recipe I’ve ever used. The cookies come out chewy and with very few crumbs.

If you want to make soft peanut butter cookies vs crunchy then this is the perfect recipe!
