peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

Do you love peanut butter and chocolate…together? I do! They are one of my favorite combinations.  If you love Peanut Butter and Chocolate you will love this Peanut Butter Cookie with Chocolate Chips.  So, I thought it was time to share with you my favorite Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe. These are some of the best (in my opinion) that you can make at home, and I have tried a few different recipes.


I really hate to do this to you this early in the New Year…what with all your New Years Resolutions and such…but it had to be done.  This recipe is from none other than my favorite Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book.  There are a couple of small changes that I make to the recipe which I think makes them extra special!  My changes have been marked in red.


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

*recipe from BHG with some modifications.


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar or 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon milk (add this at the very end just to make dough smooth and creamy)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup semi-chocolate chips (depending on your preferred chocolate needs)



1. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Add milk (from 1/2 Tablespoon to 1 Tablespoon just enough 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.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Drop cookies by scooping them out of the bowl with a spoon dropping them in small balls onto your greased cookie sheets (instead of rolling them into balls and sugar and then pressing with a fork). Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Makes about 36 cookies.

These cookies come out so soft and have a really great flavor and texture.  Just enough peanut butter to chocolate ratio.  I prefer to bake with smooth peanut butter, but if you prefer the chunkified peanut butter knock your self out.  Either way I think you are really going to like these.

    Hi,Amy.. #Drop cookies in small balls onto greased cookie sheets#—> sorry,i dont get what you mean by drop? the dough is runny? Thanks in advance!

    • says

      Sorry Erin…I just added a bit more to the recipe to help it make more sense. Basically the dough can just be scooped out of the bowl with a spoon and then dropped onto the cookie sheet. So you just have a small rounded “drop” of cookie dough. The smaller the drop, the smaller the cookie. Hope that helps explain it better! Thanks for pointing that out…I am sure there would have been others who might have been confused!

  2. says

    Ya can’t beat a peanut butter and chocolate combination. It just doesn’t get any better than this. Thank heavens I didn’t set any New Year’s weight loss resolutions. It just gives me permission to eat more of these wonderful cookies.

  3. says

    so glad you shared this today! I was planning to make peanut butter cookies but wasn’t sure what recipe to use, so I left my cookbook & peanut butter out on the counter for attention later… so glad I read this before I went back to it! :)

  4. says

    I am making these right now! Thanks for posting these. Saw them on Pinterest and I had to whip up a batch. My boyfriend loves peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies so I am constantly trying different recipes to test them out on his “expert” taste.

  5. Natalie @ says

    These were SUPER good. I had to add about 1/4 cup extra flour, but they turned out perfect!!! Thanks for sharing!

    • says

      Glad they turned out for you. Some recipes I have to add a little more flour too as well. Glad you were able to get it just right!

  6. says

    I found this via Today’s Creative Blog link party. I swear I spent a good 30 minutes looking for a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie today, but didn’t find anything that “spoke to me.” I’m so glad I saw this. I’ll definitely be trying them soon.

  7. Rebekah says

    Where do you find those cute straws? I see them all the time on blogs and pinterest, but have no idea where they come from.

  8. amy says

    They do look amazing!! Is there a link for printer friendly version, I can make it myself, but wanted to ask if I was missing it?A cute recipe card with a picture would be cute to add to gift basket, hint hint!! Thanks

    • says

      Haha! Hint taken…but I unfortunately am horrible at printables ;)! I probably could make it so you could print it off rather than copying and pasting. I will see what I can do.

  9. says

    Making them right now for the kiddles – hopefully my sister and I don’t polish off the batch before they get home from school! Thanks!

  10. Rebecca says

    Just made this recipe on pinterest yesterday and made them today (I halved it because I knew I would eat them all if I made the full recipe). Delicious!

  11. says

    making these stat! thanks for sharing, i LOVE pb and chocolate. i enjoy your blog as well. thanks for sharing your gifts and talents.

  12. Kathleen says

    Loved the honey substitution, but I think it could use a little more peanut butter to suit my taste. Your pictures are AMAZING! Would you please email me the file for one? I am hanging pictures of beautiful baked goods in my new kitchen. Thanks for the recipe, definitely a keeper.

  13. Becky Christensem says

    I use this recipe too and my family loves them! So moist and even better the 2nd day! I have never added extra milk but probably a little extra peanut butter.

  14. Carrie@My Favorite Finds says

    I just pinned this to my Peanut Butter/Chocolate inboard. Yeah, I have a board designated to just that combination because I love it so much!

  15. Lindsey says

    I made these tonight with mini chips, they are quite good! I’m pinning the recipe. Thanks!

  16. Kristi says I just made these, and they are SO SO good!!! I thought 1 cup of chocolate chips was more than plenty! Mmm Mmm Good!!

  17. Ellie says

    Hi Amy – I stumbled across your blog when I was looking for fun/cute valentines decorations, and the kissing balls came up. I started looking at all your posts, and now I’m addicted to this blog. Seriously! I can’t wait to try making a lot of these things, and I love how creative and resourceful you are! So tonight I finally tried making something, and it was these cookies. They are delicious! I’ve already had about three :) Thanks so much for sharing!


  18. Amme says

    A girl brought this to craft group last night and they were wonderful. Had to find the recipe! I cannot wait to make them. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

  19. Kathryn C. says

    I’m so excited to see this recipe! Give me anything with peanut butter or chocolate and I’m a happy camper :) I “pinned” this recipe as soon as I saw it and I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for the recipe.

  20. Stephanie says

    I tried them! Nowhere near as beautiful as yours but every bit as addicting as you implied. Thank you SO much!

  21. Melissa says

    Hi Amy — I found this recipe on Pinterest & made these tonight –I think my boyfriend has eaten a bunch already! :) so so good. Thanks!

  22. Amber B. says

    Can I just say … heaven in my mouth! I too am a chocolate/PB fanatic and LOVE THESE COOKIES! My husband was at work when I made these. Me and my 3 year old almost had them all eaten by the time he got home. I guess I’m gonna have to use the elliptical a little longer tonight. BEST RECIPE EVER!!!!!!!

  23. Kellee says

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! They sound delicious. And thank you for the printable recipe card with a picture! It makes it so much easier for me!!

  24. GunnysGirl says

    Thank you for the recipe!! I am going to add this to possible items to add to hubby’s care packages while he is deployed ~ he LOVES PB and Chocolate! Thanks again!

  25. Erika Gagon says

    So yummy! Made these tonight while my husband was out, didn’t even notice he was gone ;) ha ha

  26. Amy says

    Made them and added my own personal element…1/2 cup mini choc chips and 1/2 cup mini m&m’s…Lets’ just say…Ah-Mazing! Thanks for sharing!

    Fixin to re-post them on my blog…giving a link to here…Love them!

  27. Kristin says

    This recipe is delicious! I tried it out and they turned out great! I got a little inventive and made 2 batches – the first I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out just like the pictures…mmmm! The second batch instead of peanut butter I used Nutella and added a couple tablespoons of peanut butter. Those cookies went twice as fast as the first batch. Thanks for the great recipe – this will definitely be kept in the “go-to” stack!

  28. Sheila says

    I just made these and are delicious! And I have very little experience baking do am very excited!

    • says

      Awww…thanks for sharing that. Your little guy has great taste! So glad you like them and thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

  29. Kaitlyn says

    These are my new favorite chocolate chip cookies! So amazing! A BIG hit at my house!!! :)

  30. says

    I’ve made these once before but tried them this time with chunky peanut butter. LOVED them both times! They were gobbled up by my roommates in no time at all…luckily I stashed away some dough for later ;)

    Thanks for the great recipe!
    my life. my love. my ramblings.

  31. jennie says

    Just made these after I saw them on pinterest. they are to DIE for delicious!! thanks for the recipe!

  32. amy says

    Tried these today. Amazing! I added a little vanilla pudding (just the powder) when I added the flour. I do this with all cookies. Made them so soft!

  33. Lyds says

    thank you so much for sharing. These were (and still are- though I shouldn’t eat any more) GREAT!

  34. Noelle says

    These really are the best peanut butter chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made. I found you from pinterest and will use this recipe again and again! Thanks!

  35. Beverly says

    These were the best pb chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had!!! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  36. Adrienne says

    These cookies are so good. I normally do not like homemade chocolate chip cookies but these turned out fabulous!

  37. Nitasha says

    AMAZING!!! They were super easy and incredily yummy! I just pulled them out 10 minutes ago and I’ve already eaten 4 of them! They are the perfect combo for those who love peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies! Thanks for sharing!

  38. says

    ymmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm this is so good im making them right now and it smells grate ymmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. Jamie says

    These look like heaven, my absolute favorite combination! I think I must make them tonight! Just found your blog, I am liking what I see :)

  40. Peg says

    What elevation are you at? These look delicious but I’m at 4500 ft and I was wondering if my cookies would look as pretty as yours.

    • says

      Peg–I am at 4,226 feet (1,288 m). I just had to google it :)! So it should be pretty close. I sometimes need to add a bit more flour in some recipes but this one should be good for you. Hope that helps!

  41. katey says

    Tried these and they were delish! Even though i over baked the first two batches, (50 yr old oven equals uneven baking) when i make them again ill know for sure how long to let them cook

  42. Diane says

    Hello! I pinned this recipe awhile ago and decided to make these cookies today…they are delicious!! Thanks for posting the recipe!!

  43. Becky says

    I made these and sent them in a care package to my boy friend and he LOVED them!! Two of his favorite things. It made him want to come HOME! Thank you!!! :)

  44. Annette says

    “Depending on your preferred chocolate needs…” Aren’t you cute?! Put a whole cup of chocolate chips in these and call it good! :) Making these now for the 3rd time. It is my favorite cookie recipe. One bowl and about 30 minutes later the first ones are coming out of the oven. THANKS!

    • says

      So glad you love them Annette! They are really that good. And my chocolate needs are always great so…..ha!

  45. Jodie says

    Hi Amy! Thanks for the recipe, it looks delicious! I was just wondering, when you say “1/2 cup brown sugar or 1/4 cup honey” what do you usually prefer to use? Does using one over the other affect the taste? I want to try these soon! Thanks! Jodie

  46. Micah says

    My new favorite recipe!!!!!!! My husband is going to DIE when he gets home. These are so amazing!!!! Thanks for the recipe!! This is my new “go to” cookie!!!

  47. Lisa says

    Just made these today. I have Celiac so made these with my Gluten Free flour. I omited the milk because they were too creamy already, and had to add more flour. I’m guessing more because of my high altitude (5,000 ft.) than because of the flour. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if it is also partly because of the Gluten Free flour, too.
    Anyway, delicious! I haven’t had REAL cookies like this in so long. They’re not as fluffly as yours in the pics, but still fluffly and yummy! Thanks for the pics, blog, & great recipe!! It’s made my day. :D

  48. The Orams says

    Well Erin, so far so good. Currently loading up the pan with fresh cookie dough. One of us chefs sneaked one already. Stay tuned for more updates.

  49. katie says

    Hiya i am from New Zealand and i made these on the weekend, they were delicious! thankyou! :)

  50. Taylor R says

    These look so good and I am testing them out tonight (I can’t wait–its only 10:45 am and its making me hungry lol), but was wondering…does salted or non salted butter make a difference?? I know sometimes when I make my icing that you can tell the difference. Thanks in advance for any help from you or any other commenters who have tried them :)

    • says

      I have noticed a difference when you use the non-salted butter. I think it doesn’t have as great of a taste.

  51. Brenda says

    This question may have already been posted in the comments so I appologize if that’s the case but approx. how many cookies does this recipe yield? I can’t wait to try this one. Thanks for sharing.

  52. Erin says

    I love baking. I love baking cookies more than anything. And while I’ve searched through countless blogs and made a lot of really good cookies, this one is a stand-out. I use dark chocolate (because I love dark chocolate) and a heaping 3/4 cup of peanut butter and they come out perfect everytime! These are impossibly good cookies. They also happen to be some of the nicest looking cookies I’ve ever made. Can’t really beat that. Thank you for sharing your recipe, it’s much appreciated.

    • says

      Yay! I am so glad you shared that with me. We love them too and they are one of my very favorite cookies as well. Thanks for taking the time to come back here and let me know!

  53. Ashley says

    I just made these with crunchy peanut butter, and they turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!

  54. Stephanie says

    Saw this recipe on Pinterest and I have made them at least 4 times now. This is my family’s new favorite cookie recipe. Delicious!!

  55. says

    Man, I must have done something terribly wrong. I make cookies 1-2 times a week and have never had cookies turn out so flat…they didn’t even stay in one piece when I transferred them on the cooling rack. Maybe I’ll try them again…

  56. Kathy E. says

    Great cookies! Anything with p.b. and chocolate has to be a winner in this house! Mine were probably a bit larger than expected in the recipe….got 32…and had to bake about 4 minutes longer in my convection oven. Crispy on the outside and mmmmm on the inside! Thanks!

    • says

      So glad they were a hit. And thank you for taking the time to come back here and share that with me! I always appreciate it!

    • says

      Yay!! Thanks for sharing that with me! Glad you loved them and glad you found them via Pinterest! Would love for you to stick around :)

  57. Jen says

    These are fabulous cookies!! I used a pampered chef cookie scooper – so mine were a little larger. I baked them for 10 minutes. Very yummy! Thanks!

  58. Madie says

    I have baked these twice now and they are the best cookies ever! I made them again today and added 1/2 cup walnuts and they are so yummy! Very easy recipe to add your fav thing to and make it your own! I can’t stand after you make cookies and they cool down and get hard- these cookies stay soft even after they cool down.

    • says

      Thanks Madie! That is really one of my favorite parts too…the soft cookie! I don’t like hard cookies either so sometimes I will only bake a few so I can save the dough and have fresh cookies another day…that is if the dough doesn’t get eaten first.

  59. says

    Hi. I just finished baking these Choco peanut butter cookies and they are hands down FABULOUS !!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

    • says

      Yeah!! So glad you made them and loved them! Also thanks for taking the time to stop by and let me know. I always love hearing when someone makes something I have shared…and even more when I hear they enjoyed it!

  60. Chelsea says

    Oh. My. Gosh. These cookies are so good! And they are even soft and wonderful after five days. My favorite part is that they are slightly crunchy on the outside, but softish on the inside- which makes the perfect cookie.
    I used candy bar chunks instead of chocolate chips, which made them even better. :)

  61. Michelle says


    I saw this recipe and I want to give it as a gift in a jar. Can I just mix all the dry ingredients together and leave out the wet ingredients? Any ideas? Thanks for your help!!

  62. Megan says

    Just made these cookies for my family – turned out to be a TOTAL hit! So gooey and delicious! Thank you for the share!

  63. Christina g. says

    Love love love these!! I want to make them for a cookie exchange next weekend has anyone tried freezing a batch? Just wondering if that would work

  64. Allison says

    These look AMAZING!! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to try them :) I’m at 7,000ft and new to cooking and baking at elevation. Is adding flour the only adjustment that you typically have to make? And how do I know when I’ve added enough? Thanks so much in advance!

  65. Kristen Harris says

    These were delicious even though I made them dairy free (Earth’s Balance butter spread and non-dairy chocolate chips)! Very impressed!

  66. Andrea says

    So glad I stumbled onto your blog via Pinterest. I just made these PB Choc. Chip cookies for a work cookie exchange & they turned out great. On the 2nd batch, I added more PB & less choc. chips & they seemed even more chewy. I recommend using parchment paper to get a pretty cookie like yours. I used a melon ball scooper, but you will need to press the cookie down, unless you prefer tiny cookies. Thanks again for posting as these are my new favorite cookie!

  67. Darce says

    Absolutely delicious!!! We used the honey instead of brown sugar.. So moist and delicious! Thank you for sharing!

  68. says

    These cookies look amazing, wonderful pictures and I guess it’s not just the camera. :-) Love the simple recipe and the beautiful output!

  69. Julie says

    Recipe came out great, but the second time around i used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate and they were even BETTER! (What can i say? We really like peanut butter.)

  70. Kira says

    I made these last night. I divided the dough in half and put chocolate chips in one half, and butterscotch in the other… I let the dough chill in the fridge overnight so it was easier to handle. AMAZING!!! It’s hard to find a PB cookie that isn’t dry the next day… These are wonderful!! Going to make them again (after these are gone :-) with almond butter!! Thank you for sharing!

  71. Shay says

    2nd tray in the oven right now. I didn’t think I would need the milk…boy was i wrong! 1st tray was dry and more biscuit like…..waiting for the perfectness of tray 2!!!! Thanks

  72. Marion Patterson says

    Found this amazing recipe on Pinterest, loved it so did my husband, otherwise known as the cookie monster in this house. Thanks…

  73. Celena says

    These are amazing! This has become my staple cookie recipe. Thanks so much for sharing! The pictures you posted are amazing, too.

  74. Krysten says

    I pinned this recipe a few months ago and haven’t been able to get around to making them until now. I’m 7 months pregnant and currently have a sweet tooth (my 1st trimester and most of my second my sweet tooth disappeared). I just put my first batch in the oven and oh my goodness, the batter itself is sooooooo good!!! Smooth and creamy, the best peanut butter batter I’ve ever made and the chocolate chips make it that much better. I made my own adjustment, I used powdered sugar instead cause I happened to have more of it and I added small amounts of flour at a time and was able to get it all in with my mixer. I used the full 1 tablespoon of milk and a full cup of mini chocolate chips. I did a lot of baking over the holidays and am so disappointed now that this wasn’t one of the cookies I made. I’m definitely going to have to send most of the batch to work with my husband so I don’t eat them all. :o)

  75. Tonya says

    I just made these and they are AMAZING!!!!!!! We had a hard time putting them down! Thanks for the recipe it will be my go to cookie from now on!

  76. Emily says

    These look delicious, but I just tried making these and I think I did something wrong. Instead of being full and soft, they’re pretty flat and hard and have “pores”. The cookies definitely puffed up in the oven, but deflated as soon as I took them out. I followed the recipe closely because the last time I made peanut butter chocolate chip, they turned out just as disappointing. Any ideas as to where I might have made a mistake?

  77. A says

    Simple and amazing. Love that it calls for everything that can already be found in the pantry/fridge.

  78. says

    omg, I just found these on Pinterest while I am here at work. I am SO making these tonight when I get home – can’t wait!!!

  79. Shawna says

    These cookies are great…thanks for sharing. In addition to the chocolate chips I added butterscotch chips just to switch things up…this was also very yummy :)

  80. S says

    I never really comment on blogs but this one deserves it.
    These are the BEST most scrumptious, gooey, perfect cookies ever… EVER!!!!!!

  81. Theresa says

    I thought this was a lovely recipe, but they didn’t bake so well for me :( … I did three batches, all at different times, and they all came out sort of … mushy. I’m not sure if it’s the peanut butter or bc I used honey instead of brown sugar? They were still yummy, but not for someone who likes firmer cookies!

    • says

      Oh no! Sometimes if my dough is a bit sticky I will add a bit more flour to it. High Altitude can affect that a bit. But they are for sure a bit softer.

  82. Andrea says

    These were absolutely amazing! I made these this morning before breakfast. These are a keeper. The only thing about them is I had to cook them for 11 minutes instead of 9 to get them cooked. Other than that my family and I LOVE these! Thank you so much for sharing!

  83. Kelly says

    I work at an orphanage in the Philippines, and I baked these for our kids this week. They LOVED them! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  84. Rhonalyn Orriss says

    My boyfriend is hooked on reeces pieces, so I made these mainly for him. I posted my result on my facebook, along with your website :)

  85. Kristen says

    Just made these and they turned out AMAZING! I added a cup of chocolate chips because to me…the more chocolate the better :)

  86. Anne Marie says

    These look absoloutely delish! In fact, Im going to go make them right now… Thanks for sharing!

  87. Lindsay says

    Delicious! These are the perfect combination of peanut butter and chocolate! I’ll be making these again!

  88. Amy says

    How do you get yours to turn out flat without squishing them like in the original recipe? If I just bake them as the balls, they don’t spread out like they’re supposed to. I’ve just been squishing them beforehand.

    Great recipe though – I’ve gotten many compliments on them! I do use milk chocolate chips however instead of semi-sweet.


    • says

      I don’t know. They just do. Butter tends to make a flatter cookie, so if you want flatter you could try using butter instead of margarine or other shortening. Not sure what you are using now.

  89. Alexis says

    these are really good cookies! I’ve made them twice now and both times they turned out great. I love how fluffy these are! I’d say one batch of these makes about 24 regular sized cookies.

  90. Jillian says

    Making these for the THIRD time! My family is obsessed with this delicious recipe! Thank you so much for sharing!!

    • says

      So happy to hear that! They are addicting for sure! They are one of our go-to recipes as well! Thanks so much for sharing that with me. I love to hear from people who are actually using what I share! ENJOY!

  91. despina nina says

    I hope I make them so delious as the one in the photograh <3 love peanutbutter and chocolate

  92. Jill Kresowaty says

    I am sooo excited to make these today with the kiddos!!! It is a snowy morning and this recipe is just perfect :) Thank you so much for sharing :)

  93. Marcelle25 says

    I just made these with my 3yo. We used 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter chips. They are outstanding! These will definitely be added to my cookie rotation.

    • says

      I am so glad you loved them! Thanks for taking the time to come back and let me know! I always enjoy hearing from others who have really tested them out!

  94. Carol says

    I just made this! Half of it were gone even before they were completely cooled off.
    It totally satisfied my peanut-butter and chocolate cravings!!!
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! Keeping it. :)

    • says

      Ha! Sounds familiar! I am so glad that you loved them. And they totally fix my PB and chocolate cravings too.

  95. Nikki says

    Just made. These are perfect.
    And it made my morning when you said “depending on your preferred chocolate needs”.
    Thank you!!

  96. Amanda Farr says

    Just made these to take to work but they are so good I think the family will be eating them all!! Thanks Amy!!!

  97. Madge says

    These are absolutely DELICIOUS!! I wanted to try a new recipe today and whipped these together! talk about perfect combo to satisfy a peanut butter chocolate craving! I tried sprinkling a little seasalt on top of some and it was also super delicious! Thank you for this awesome recipe!

    • says

      I am so glad you LOVED them!! That always makes me happy to hear! Especially because you take the time to come back and share it here with me! xo

      • Madge says

        Just so you know my family loved these so much I’ve had to make another double batch tonight ;) thanks again

  98. Chris says

    Hi, Amy! It’s about time I thanked you for sharing your fabulous peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe. Since discovering it on Pinterest about 18 months ago, it’s been my go-to cookie recipe. I’ve probably baked them about 6 times so far. The cookies come out great each time, and I always get rave reviews. Thanks so much!

    • says

      So happy to hear that! I am glad you are enjoying them! They are our go to recipe as well! Thanks for coming back here and sharing that with me! xo

  99. Michelle McDonald says

    These were AMAZING! I usually have a hard time following recipes exactly as they say, but I did for these cookies and they were sooooo good! Thanks for sharing :)

  100. Shellie says

    I have used this recipe for two years now and every time I make them I get tons of compliments. This will forever be my favorite cookies recipe.

  101. Allison says

    These are my favorite cookies ever! My 2 year old and I just finished making a batch in honor of the first snow fall. They turn out perfect every time I make them. Nothing beats one (or two) of these cookies and a tall glass of milk. Thanks for the recipe.

  102. Nicki says

    Absolutely awesome cookies! Loved them! I didn’t put any milk in it(we were out) and they still turned out perfect

    • says

      Yay! Yes…they should be fine without the milk…just gives it a little more creaminess. Hope you were able to still wash them down without milk :)

  103. Rikki says

    Hi Amy,

    I just made these today and they are delicious!!

    YUM YUM made these the other night and my husband loved them!!! I did have to adjust the temp and time. I had it at 375 for 8 min but it was to mushy in the center so I put it on 350 for 10 and it was amazing :) I love how simple the recipe is !! I memorized it already lol Im baking another batch for my daughters “Cookies with Santa” event at her school. She’s taking a tray of your cookies to share :) Happy holidays!!!

    Just made these tonight for my bf who loves peanut butter. They were just as good as all the commenters said. Will definitely make again!

    We have made these twice in the last seven days and they are ridiculously delicious!!! I’ve passed on this link to many already!! This is definitely a recipe we’ll be using often. Thank you!

    I know this post is a few years old, but I just made these for the first time and HAD to leave a comment! They are delicious! Absolutely the best peanut butter cookie recipe I’ve ever made! I learned that 7 minutes was the magic number for my stove and then I let them rest on the cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. If I tried to immediately remove them, they crumbled. So the extra minute really makes a difference! Thank you for posting this recipe.

    I saw the title and had to look at the recipe because I think I have the best peanut butter chocolate chip recipe (given to me by a friend) and wondered how close yours was to mine. The amounts are exactly half of mine(except for the mile), and I double mine. :) You are right, they are the best! We must have similar tastes!

    I’m trying these tonight and my first batch is in the oven! I used the brown sugar and thought, “why not some honey too?” So I put both in and made the cookies bigger so I may only get 14 or so out of the batch! Thanks for the recipe!

    These were awesome!!! Made them tonight and my husband and I ate a bunch of them. Will definitely make again !!

    I’ve tried many MANY cookie recipes I’ve found on pinterest which state “best ever” “great” “my family loved” and to be honest most of them have just not been that good. I just made these, expecting pretty much the same result. WOW was I wrong! These cookies are delicious – soft with just the right mix of peanut butter and chocolate. I will definitely be adding these to my Christmas cookie list. Thanks for the great recipe!

    I was just wondering if it was bad to use natural peanut butter when making these…I made them today and they were not as peanut buttery as I was hoping and thought it might be that?

      I think regular peanut butter has more oil and salt. So that could possibly be the problem.

    I wanted to love these but mine were so blah :-( I followed the recipe to the T and the next batch I added more peanut butter. Still lacked flavor.
