{the BEST peanut butter chocolate chip cookies}


What makes these the best?  Mmmmmmm...it's the perfect consistency--soft but with a little bit of crunch from the now crispy sugar they were rolled in, the richness of the chocolate chips complements the smooth peanut butter exactly as it should, and quite simply, they melt in your mouth!  These have been our family's favorites for a long time, and anytime I serve them or take them anywhere, they're always immediately snapped up.  I like using Guittard or Ghirardelli chocolate chips (I'm a milk chocolate girl ☺), because I like their large size. The more chocolate, the better!  

{The BEST Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies}

1 c. sugar
 1 c. packed brown sugar 
1 c. peanut butter 
1 c. butter, softened
 2 eggs 
2 1/2 c. flour
 1 tsp. baking soda
 2 c. chocolate chips (I use the large Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips) 

 Preheat the oven to 325. Cream together the butter, peanut butter, and both sugars; beat in eggs. Stir together flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture. Beat just until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips. Roll into balls, then roll them in granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Use two fingers to press them down slightly. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool slightly before removing from pan and transferring them to a cooking rack.

DEE-licious!

Hi! These look great.

I think you mean stir together 'flour' and baking soda

And further on I'm pretty sure you remove to a cooling rack.

Maybe edit and remove this post.

Thanks so very much, the rolling in sugar probably makes these and I will make them!

Do you use a crunchy peanut butter?

Do you use hippy peanut butter (the all nut no additives kind) or something like Jif with the added oils?

Thanks again, love your blog.

I made these, and they are delicious! They don't look like yours though, mine look like a Kiss Cookie (peanut butter blossom). Thanks for the recipe!

Anna--

Sorry about the flour--I'll go add it in! I use creamy peanut butter, because that's what my kids like, but I have used crunchy, and I love it. You can use either one! Oh, and I do use Jif.

Aleena--

Mine look different now that we live in Texas--I think it's the added humidity. They still taste good, though!

I just made these and substituted Peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips. They were gone so fast. The recipe is a keeper.
