Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

July 26, 2010

Today I’m busy in the kitchen. My little boy is having a birthday party–a Toy Story 3 one to be exact! I’m excited to share all of the pictures and activities we did with you on Wednesday’s post. It’s been a lot of fun and hard work prepping for it. But I’m excited and I know he is really, really excited about his party.

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. I tried a recipe awhile ago and didn’t like how they turned out. These ones were much better tasting. The kids and husband devoured them thoroughout the weekend. At least their gone because today is cake, cupcake and ice cream day!!

And now to find my bottle of Excedrin pre-party. Boys + house = hope your house is left standing afterwards. 🙂


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter softened

1/2 cup creamy or chunky natural peanut butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 pkg (11.5) oz milk chocolate chips

Granulated sugar, for rolling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, place a small amount of granulated sugar and set aside for later use. In a bowl, beat the butter, peanut butter, sugars and vanilla on medium speed until creamy (approximately 1-2 minutes) Beat in the egg and continue mixing on medium speed until mixture becomes light and fluffy.

Incorporate the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt on low speed until mixed thoroughly into the wet ingredients. Turn off mixture, fold in chocolate chips.

Roll dough into tablespoon sized balls, than roll each dough ball in the granulated sugar before placing on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Place dough balls two inches apart on the cookie sheet.

Bake cookies at 375 degrees for approximately 10-12 minutes. remove from oven, allow to cool on cookie sheet several minutes before moving cookies to wire racks to finish cooling completely. Store in airtight container for several days.
