Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wish I had thought of this myself. Peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips? Brilliant!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie
Recipe from (original PB Cookie recipe from BHG)

1/2 c butter, softened (1 stick)
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 to 1 Tbsp milk (add this at the very end just to make dough smooth and creamy)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
Combine butter and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl. Add in the granulated sugar and brown sugar, blending well. Mix in the vanilla and the egg. Add baking soda, baking powder, and flour. Add enough milk (from 1/2 Tbsp to 1 Tbsp) to make the dough moist and creamy. Add chocolate chips and mix till just incorporated.  If necessary, cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle (I've never done this).

Drop by spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake  for 7 to 9 minutes. I like to take them out of the oven just before you think they are done, then let them settle on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing.  Makes a few dozen cookies (you may want to double the recipe if you are hoping for lots of cookies! The first time I made these, they were gone way too quickly!)

Kathryn first introduced me to Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies using this other recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. That recipe makes a lot more cookies but the dough is very crumbly and doesn't fit well in my Kitchen Aid mixer. But both are yummy so feel free to decide for yourself!


  1. Yum, KellyAnne... I will definitively choose to double this recipe.

  2. I'm eating one of these delicious cookies at this very minute... I'm certain I will eat two without blinking. They are so good! Thanks to Aaron and Em for making them last night. They used half milk chocolate chips and half semi sweet... Guittard... my favorite brand. And yes, they doubled the recipe... loved the look inthe grand-kiddos eyes as they counted the pile of cooling cookies on the counter!

  3. You're right, this recipe is way better doubled! I also discovered that there is no need to grease the pans before baking. I will change the recipe to reflect that!

  4. Been craving chocolate and Peanut for a few days now. I like this recipe better than the other I tried as well. Liked that the batter didn't crumble; milk at the end must have been the trick! I did not double the recipe though, nor should I ever until I have at least three more people in my household! :)
