Sharing is caring!

If you were to ask my closest friends & family members what their favorite dish of mine is, they will all say in unison that it’s peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! Somehow my peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips make the top of my family’s charts (along with my buffalo chicken dip).

You may ask, what could make this recipe better than the recipe we all used from the back of the chocolate chips? You are absolutely right! 

It’s the unsuspected ingredient, our favorite peanut butter. Not too much, but just enough to add a little something extra to your normal cookie recipe. 

It’s also the perfect pairing with The Guest House sugar cookies that Morgan makes – if you’re baking for a crowd.

Another thing I love to do is prep the dough ahead of time – either while meal prepping or when I am feeling inspired to bake – and freezing the dough for later. That way, when you have a random gathering pop up where you’re needing to bring something for – you’ll be ready just after 10 minutes of baking. 

 Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened (1 1/2 sticks) 
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 whole eggs

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Slowly add in flour, salt, and baking soda, until the flour is just mixed in.

Stir in chocolate chips until spread throughout the dough.

Scoop round balls onto cookie sheet. Slightly flatten the cookie before putting in oven.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Remove and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes.

Move cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. If you’re in the market for a new wire cooling rack – this set of stackable ones is super handy.
