  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter I used Skippy Naturals
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Maple Cinnamon Glaze

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Cream peanut butter, butter, and sugars together in a mixing bowl.
  • Beat in egg, vanilla, and milk and continue mixing until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, corn starch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Gradually add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture, mixing until dough comes together.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Scoop out dough using a cookie scoop. (You want about two tablespoons of dough.) Use your hands to form into a ball.
  • Roll balls in remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and place on parchment line cookie sheet. Use a fork to press down on the cookie, flattening it slightly.
  • Bake for 9-12 minutes, just until cookie is set. I like mine slightly underdone but you can go the fulll 12 minutes if you like.
  • Remove cookies and cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack. Let cookies cool completely.

Maple Cinnamon Glaze

  • Heat butter and maple syrup together in a small saucepan until butter is melted and ingredients are fully combined.
  • Stir in maple extract and cinnamon.
  • Whisk in powdered sugar 1/3 cup at a time until full incorporated. Add milk one teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Dip cooled cookies in glaze and return to cooling rack.
  • Let glaze set and then serve.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container for up to three days.
