I decided I better fix that problem right away so today you are getting my favorite and the BEST peanut butter chocolate chip cookies recipe.
Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Of course you could make these without chocolate chips but since I think peanut butter and chocolate is basically a match made in heaven my peanut butter cookie have chocolate chips in them! I’ve eaten a lot of peanut butter cookies and think this recipe is the best!
How to Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
After mixing together the dough you can either add in chocolate chips, I like to use semi sweet or roll the balls of dough in sugar.
When I add chocolate chips into the dough I don’t roll the balls of dough in sugar . I just form them into nice little balls and place them on the cookie sheet.
Before baking, smoosh down the balls of dough. You can use the bottom of a glass but I just use my hand. I do this so they spread out a bit more when they are baking. It’s totally a personal preference.
If you like a soft peanut butter cookie be sure and NOT overbake them. They will be just slightly golden brown and probably look like they need another minute or two to bake. I love my cookies slightly crisp on the edges and chewy in the middle.
The next step is grab a nice cold glass of milk and a couple of cookies, maybe more than a couple because these babies are good! On a cookie scale of 1- 5 – they are a 5!! That means you can eat five of them with no worries!!
