Classic Peanut Butter Cookies Just Like Mama Used To Make

Peanut butter cookies truly make me feel like a kid again and once you taste these yummy morsels you’ll know why.

Disney is my favorite place ever. I can go there week after week, day after day and not get bored. As soon as my husband and I got married, we purchased seasonal passes and the Disney Vacation Club. We go at least 5 times per year using our points for our timeshare and our seasonal passes. Every time we go, we eat at a new restaurant either within a part, or in Disney Springs (their nice shopping and dining area). It has been such a fun and exciting tradition.
We cannot wait for kids to join us in this for many reasons. One, because rides would just be so much more fun with a child who enjoys them as well. I cannot wait to see their faces light up with joy when they see their favorite characters. And the second reason, because of the food!

The food in Disney is delicious, particularly for the kids. It is full of yummy treats and one of those is their classic Peanut Butter cookies. As a kid, I always loved them for their classic flavors, but extra Disney flair and I cannot wait for our kids to try these as well once they are old enough!

Disney cookies are by far the best cookies. I mean, anything made in Disney is awesome. You cannot go wrong with these peanut butter cookies. They are foolproof and positively amazing! Do not worry about these being plain, you can do so much to alter their looks. I have even gone as far as making these into Mickey heads to impress the kids. They love it! Never fails to bring a smile onto their little face when I make Mickey Mouse peanut butter cookies.

The big peanut butter chunks are everything, but I agree, load these babies up with peanut butter chips and you will get practically the same results!


  • 1 cup Land O’ Lakes butter, softened
  • 1 cup Jiffy creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup Domino granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Domino packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/4 cup Domino granulated sugar


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar together. Add vanilla and mix. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda and salt together. Add to mixture in mixing bowl and stir until completely combined. Fold in peanut butter chips.
Roll dough into 1 1/2″ balls. Place 1/4 cup sugar into a small bowl and roll each ball of dough in the sugar until completely covered. Place the dough balls on a baking sheet with a non-stick baking mat. Using a flat-bottomed drinking glass (or whatever flat-bottomed object you have around the house), gently press each dough ball down (I left mine pretty thick – these cookies will stay whatever thickness you press them down to).
Bake the cookies 7-9 minutes. Remove cookies and allow them to cool on their cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, then move to a wire rack to finish cooling. These cookies are very soft – you don’t want them to overbake or turn brown at all. They will continue to set-up as they cool.
