  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Maldon sea salt, or other light tasting flakey sea salt


  1. In a large bowl, beat together butter and peanut butter using an electric mixer until well combined.
  2. Add sugars and continue to beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and mix just until blended.
  3. Roll balls of dough in white sugar before placing on an ungreased baking sheet. Press down lightly with the prongs of a fork to create a criss-cross pattern.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not over bake.
  5. Sprinkle lightly with Maldon sea salt as soon as you remove the cookies from the oven.
  6. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for at least 3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
