Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

The peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe combines two of the best loved cookies of all times! I believe the saying goes “two great tastes that taste great together!”


2 sticks (1 cup) salted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 ounces (about 2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup granulated sugar

Large bowl
Medium bowl
Small bowl
Cookie sheets

Step 2: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
Step 3: In a large bowl, with an electric mixer set on medium-high cream butter for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Add both sugars and beat well.
Step 5: Beat in vanilla extract, and each egg one at a time.
