How to Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Making these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies could not get any easier. Combine the ingredients to form a soft batter. Add the chocolate chip morsels and scoop heaping tablespoons onto a baking sheet. The cookies are ready to go into the oven in like 10-minutes. WINNER!

Finally, sit by the oven door and watch the cookies come to life. This step, of course, is optional, but truly satisfying. Ha! I’m not weird at all and would never do that.

  • TIP: Don’t overbake the cookies or else they will taste dry. When baking, remove the cookies from the oven when the tops begin to brown and center feels slightly undercooked. Set aside to cool completely and the centers will feel just right.
  • TIP: Add few morsels to the tops of the cookies, the morsels don’t sink in and are quite appealing and rather yummy.

Can I freeze peanut butter cookies?

This recipe is the perfect recipe to freeze. Place the shaped (uncooked) cookies into the freezer on a baking sheet or cutting board (lined with parchment paper) until the cookies completely freeze. Then, transfer to a freezer Ziploc bag. To bake, add cookies to a baking sheet, thaw, bake per original instructions.

Can I use natural peanut butter?

This recipe works best with a traditional creamy peanut butter. Natural peanut butter has a higher fat content and more oil and it will not work in this recipe.

What kind of chocolate chip morsels can I use?

You can use either milk chocolate or dark chocolate morsel for the peanut butter cookies. If you really like the taste of peanut butter, mix in some peanut butter morsels with milk chocolate.

TIP: If you enjoy lots of chocolate chips in your cookies, add more than the specified amount.
