How to Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card to get the measurements and full instructions!
- Start by creaming the butter, both sugars and peanut butter together. It will get nice and creamy.
- Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix it until everything is combined.
- Next you stir in the flour, baking soda and salt. You want to mix until the flour is just mixed into the dough.
- Finally add in the chocolate chips. Here I like to use milk chocolate, but you really can use whatever variety you like.
- Scoop the balls of dough onto a baking sheet and then they are ready for the oven.
- You will want to gently press down the balls of dough before you bake. These cookies do not spread very much at all, so unless you want them super thick, gently press down before putting the tray in the oven.
- No need to chill the dough for these. If you want to you can, but they bake up absolutely perfect without any chilling!
- Want the prettiest cookies? Once you scoop balls of dough onto a baking sheet, press in a few chocolate chips into the top. They will bake up and look professional and absolutely perfect!
- You can use crunchy peanut butter if you want more texture to your cookies.
- I like milk chocolate chip for this recipe because of the classic chocolate and peanut butter combination. But you can definitely use semi-sweet or even dark chocolate if you prefer.
These are going to be some of the softest cookies ever. And they are down right addicting! These cookies are perfectly thick, chewy, fluffy, and definitely worthy of a tall glass of milk! If you are a fan of peanut butter and chocolate together, you are going to want to add these to your baking list.
Do You Need To Chill The Dough Before Baking
Nope, with these cookies you definitely can skip that step. That being said, if you want to make them dough ahead of time, it will be fine sitting in the fridge for up to 24 hours before baking.
Can you Freeze Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yes, most definitely! Once the cookies are fully cooled you can place them in an air tight container and store in the freezer for a couple months.
Or you can freezer the dough, so you can bake them fresh. Scoop balls of dough and place on a baking tray. Let them sit in the freezer for 1-2 hours until they balls of dough are solid, then put in a food storage bag and put in the freezer. Then you can just bake a couple cookies at a time when cravings strike or a whole tray if guests show up. Then you have warm and gooey cookies at any time.
What Kind Of Peanut Butter Do I Use
You really want to use the normal commercial peanut butter for the best results. Something like Skippy or Jif brand will give you the best cookies. Will it work with a natural peanut butter? Yes, but they won’t hold together quite as well, be as thick or as soft.
This peanut butter cookie recipe is based on these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies that have proven to be very popular around here. I love my cookies to be soft and chewy, and these peanut butter cookies are exactly that.
If you are looking for a different dessert to make, then these cookies are a must make. I have been asked for the recipe every time I share them with people. Just beware, it is hard to eat just one!
