These peanut butter crackers are so simple to make – just dump all of the ingredients into a food processor! We like to eat them with cheese slices, but they are also really great with Nutella or honey.

Peanut butter crackers
I based these crackers off of my super popular homemade Ritz cracker recipe. It’s a simple dough made by food processing flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, butter, and creamy peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Cracker Dough
Follow these tips for the best results:

  • Make sure your butter is cold. The cold butter will make the crackers a little flaky.
  • Use creamy peanut butter, not crunchy.
  • Roll out the dough nice and thin. The thinner you roll the dough, the crispier the crackers will be.

Rolling out cracker dough

  • Don’t skip the part of the recipe where you poke holes in the dough using a fork. This step isn’t just for decoration. It helps the crackers bake more evenly.

I cut my crackers into rectangles using a pizza cutter.

Cutting out crackers
However, you can make them any shape that you like. If you are baking with kids, experiment with cutting crackers out using different cookie cutters to make it a fun project.

The crackers last for about a week.

To keep them crispy:

  • Keep the lid slightly open on the container that you store them in, or
  • store them with a piece of stale bread (the bread will absorb some of the moisture from the crackers).
