I actually didn’t like peanut butter growing up and I eat everything, you know. (except for raisins. They scare me) I did not understand peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
But now I love peanut butter and jelly! Funny how people change, huh? Peanut butter cookies and a glass of cold milk. Guess I am a legit american now.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (Crunchy one)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg room temperature
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped semisweet chocolate
1. In an electric mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and sugar until fluffy.
2. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.
4. Stir in the chopped chocolate. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 12-15 mins at 350’F. (Slightly under bake if you like chewy cookies)
I ran out of brown sugar while I was making my second batch, (yup, these are highly demanded cookies by my family and friends) and I panicked. Can I make this happen without having to run to a store..? I hectically searched my pantry. -my inner MacGyver – I replaced brown sugar with 1/4 cup white sugar and 1 Tablespoon molasses…and it turned out as fabulous! Deeper flavor and deliciously chewy!

Your photos are gorgeous and mouth watering, especially the close up and cross section ones.
Besides cooking time, I wonder approx how much prep time is involved here.
Awwee, Thanks, Fred! Before cooking, I let butter and egg out to get them room temperature, after cooking, I just grab my camera and light box. Picking out the best shot takes a bit though…. 🙂
RaeChelle – Just made these this mnnriog for a new neighbour. SOOOOO delish! I kept half for myself! August 2, 2010 – 7:13 pm
Good for you. hahaha! I keep them in the freezer and sometime take one out even right before bed with a glass of milk….ayayayaya
My Ultimate Weakness is Cookies! Now I enjoy them through photos. Thanks for sharing!
The first batch was a nhgitmare. Not enough baking soda, oven burned the bottoms and they were raw inside. I almost gave up hope!But I decided to try another batch…. And sure enough, with the help of some parchment paper and the correct dosage of baking soda- superb! I’m just gonna pretend the first batch didnt happen. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
I have thrown away lots of batches in the kitchen before (and I still do!). You are not the only one. >*< I take a deep breath, make myself a cup of tea and pretend that bad batch never happened....:D Glad you enjoyed them after all your hard work!!!!

OMG!! Wonderful 🙂
They look delicious, but the ingredients list baking soda, but step 3 refers to baking powder. I hope it’s baking soda, because that’s what I used!
Oooops! Typo!!!! It’s supposed to be baking soda.Thanks so much for noticing it. I must have been high on cookies…..
So how did they turn out? Mmmmmmmmm I want one now for breakfast.
That was quick! They turned out brilliantly. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.
