Snowman Peanut Butter Cookies


Upcoming holidays require new delicious recipe ideas! These peanut butter cookies are soft, chewy, and are best enjoyed with a glass of cold milk. A fun and easy recipe to try with your kids too!


Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature (1 stick + 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Snowman Decorations

  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup standard size chocolate chips dark or milk chocolate
  • 20 orange Reese's Pieces


  1. In a large mixing bowl using either a hand mixer or stand mixer on low, cream together room temperature butter and sugar until the consistency of wet sand.
  2. Add in peanut butter, eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly with mixer.
  3. Next add in flour, salt and baking soda and mix until just combined. Allow to rest for 30-45 minutes in the refrigerator, covered. While the cookie dough is resting, preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Portion out 1.5 ounces of cookie dough and roll it into a ball. Slightly flatten like a pancake until the cookie is about 2.5 inches across. Continue until 6 cookies are on the baking sheet. Be sure to leave about 1.5 inches between cookies.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes until slightly golden brown around the edges but still soft on top. Remove from the oven.
  6. Immediately after removing from the oven, using a sifter or fine mesh sieve, lightly dust powdered sugar over each cookie. Dust just enough to lightly cover the surface.
  7. Use 2 chocolate chips and place the eyes on the top half of the cookie but placing the tip into the cookie, leaving the flat side up. Next place the chocolate chip for the center of the mouth on the bottom half of the cookie, again with the flat side up. Add 2 chocolate chips to each side to form a smile, with the flat side up.
  8. Finally, add an orange Reese's Pieces placed on its side for the nose in the center of the cookie.
  9. Allow to cool for 10 minutes total and then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Repeat steps 5-10 until all cookie dough is baked and decorated.
