Ingredients for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Regular smooth peanut butter – use regular, smooth peanut butter like Jif or Skippy! Don’t use natural peanut butter with the exception of Jif’s natural, creamy peanut butter that doesn’t separate like most natural peanut butters.
  • Light brown sugar – light brown sugar yields a soft cookie with rich flavor.
  • Chocolate chips – you can use whatever type of chocolate chips you like! I personally like bittersweet chocolate chips. If you like your PB cookies extra chocolatey, use ½ cup of chips instead of 1/3 cup.
  • Granulated white sugar – white sugar yields a light cookie that’s not too dense.
  • Large egg – an egg binds everything together.
  • Vanilla extract – vanilla extract adds beautiful flavor.
  • Salt or white sugar (to decorate) – you don’t need to decorate your cookies with salt or sugar, but I love the extra touch!

    Add in chocolate chips and mix.

  2. Form.

    Use a tablespoon measure to form dough balls, adding them to a Silpat-lined or greased baking sheet at least an inch apart. Use a fork to push down balls of dough to desired cookie thickness, making pretty cross-hatch designs on each cookie!

  3. Bake.

    Bake cookies for 8-9 minutes at 350 degrees until cookies are dull (not shiny) and just set.

  4. Rest.

    Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with salt or sugar. Let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a plate or wire rack.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I use natural peanut butter?

Stay away from natural peanut butter since it separates, causing unevenly baked cookies. Use regular, smooth peanut butter! The only exception is Jif’s natural, smooth peanut butter that doesn’t separate! I use that PB often for these cookies.

Do I need to chill the dough?

No need to chill the cookie dough. In fact, it’s not recommended!

How long do peanut butter chocolate chip cookies last?

These cookies keep really well for 5 days and sometimes longer depending on how airtight your storage container is!

How do I store peanut butter chocolate chip cookies?

Store these cookies in an airtight container (once they’ve cooled completely) at room temperature.

Can I freeze peanut butter chocolate chip cookies?

I don’t recommend freezing the cookie dough, but you can freeze baked peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! Freeze them in a single layer, separated by parchment paper, in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months.
