What’s the Project? There’s not much better than a warm, soft peanut butter cookie…except one that has melting chocolate chips in it! This easy peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe is soft and tempting and a crowd favorite.
I bake cookies all the time (I’m trying to stop but let’s be honest, I won’t). I’ve got quite a few favorites but inevitably I come back to my old standard…because it’s my favorite.
It’s soft and chewy and utterly irresistible. I mean it. When I cook these I can’t stop eating them. And it’s my favorite combination (and yours?)-chocolate peanut butter.
I’m not kidding-you’re going to love these cookies. This peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe is my all-time favorite and it’s about to be yours too!
It’s ok to want to lick your computer screen. But you don’t have to-you can make these yourself!
First let me tell you a few tricks that I use when I make cookies. You DO NOT have to use these tricks when you make these, but it’s something I do to make my cookies extra soft and extra flavorful.
Peanut Butter Cookie Making Tips:
Soften the butter (for most cookies I fully melt mine but with peanut butter cookies it’s better to not fully melt). This helps dissolve the sugar and gives the cookies a good texture.
I add a tiny bit of milk (about 2 Tbsp.) to every batch of cookies that I make. This also adds to the softness BUT I then compensate with a little bit more flour. You need to experiment with this a little bit but it’s still important to be able to make a solid ball of cookie dough, but it should be a nice, soft ball.
Double the vanilla (don’t do this on this recipe-I’ve already compensated for this).
Bake until they are JUST done. I love my cookies soft and chewy (as you can tell) so I bake them only the minimum needed. For me, it’s 9 minutes on my oven but every oven differs.
Now, let’s make these cookies!
