Tip: Baking Soda — Baking soda helps the cookies brown nicely, adds texture, and makes the cookies taste better. If you are wondering whether or not you can make peanut butter cookies without baking soda, you can! They will be softer and more cake-like in the middle.

Sugar — You can use pretty much any sugar here. We love a combination of white granulated sugar and brown sugar. The combination makes the cookies taste great with the right amount of sweetness. As a base recipe, we use 3/4 cup of sugar, but for a cookie that’s slightly less sweet, you can reduce the sugar down to 1/2 cup without any issues.
