Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

The other day my friend Jess mentioned that she had made some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and was bummed that they turned out dry. Well after she went back to the source of the recipe she noticed that a lot of other bakers had commented with the same issue. To me there is nothing worse than a dry cookie, I was bummed for her (aren't I so empathetic?)

Then I remembered that I had made these awesome cookies and had never gotten around to blogging them. Well, for Jess' sake (and for all you other peanut butter chocolate chip cookie lovers), here is this awesome recipe.

These are seriously some of the best cookies I have ever had. Doug and I totally loved them. In fact as soon as the last one was gone Doug asked me to make more.... and I was happy to.

I found these on Stephanie Cooks (along with a lot of other really great looking recipes, check out her blog!). These are seriously so good, you won't be disappointed.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

1/2 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1 egg

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375°.

Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light.

Add the egg and mix until fluffy.

Blend the flour, baking powder, soda and salt together well.

Add these dry ingredients to the butter mixture.

Add the chocolate chips.

Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets.

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375°.
