How To Make Salted Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s hard to believe that these peanut butter cookies are made with just 5 ingredients. These dairy-free treats are specked with sea salt for added flavor.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • cupslight brown sugar,(packed)
  • 2largeeggs
  • ½tspvanilla extract
  • cupscreamy peanut butter
  • sea salt,coarse grained, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and set an oven rack in the middle position. Line two 13×18-inch baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, vigorously whisk together the light brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until combined. Add the peanut butter and mix with a rubber spatula until well combined and the dough is very thick. It will take about 3 minutes of stirring to get to the right consistency.

  3. Using a #20 (3-tablespoon) cookie scoop, drop the dough into mounds onto the prepared baking sheets.

  4. Sprinkle the dough balls lightly with the sea salt. Slide the baking sheets into the freezer for 15 minutes, or into the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes.

  5. Bake the first pan for 18 to 20 minutes, until lightly golden and cracked on top. Let cool on the pan for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  6. Repeat with the remaining cookies. The cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for several days.
