Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have chocolate chips AND peanut butter chips in them! Wowee-zowee! Did I mention real butter? What I failed to mention that? Well, they do. I gave Donna (my official outside the family taste tester) a few this morning & she text me and said I needed to get this recipe on the blog ASAP....I'm taking that as she liked them! For those of you that have been concerned, rest assured my family does not eat everything I make til its gone. These cookies for example, a big plate went to a family in our ward who helped Owen cut out his pinewood derby car, a few to neighbors & a few to Donna to give her opinion on. My kids have had a few but there's only a couple left. So to those of you that are wondering if I am baking my kids into a sugar coma while I'm dieting, I'm not...just sprinkling their sweet tooth a bit! Nothin wrong with that!
peanut butter chocolate chip cookies:
1 1/4 C. flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C. unsalted butter softened (or salted butter then cut salt down to 1/8 tsp.)
1 C. peanut butter
3/4 C. sugar
1/2 C. firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 TB. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C. chocolate chips
1/2 C. peanut butter chips

1. Mix the butter & peanut butter together until fluffy. Add remaining ingredients. Blend.

2. Drop rolls of cookie dough into sugar until coated (I forgot this step, oh well...couldn't hurt.)

3. Make criss cross pattern on top of cookies with fork or slightly flatten with spatula (skipped this too...obviously I was distracted!)

4. Bake 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes depending on size.

I accidentally rushed over those 2 steps (roll in sugar & press with fork) but apparently it didn't effect the results! Mmmmmmm! I love the smell of warm peanut butter.......don't laugh, you do too!


  1. I can vouch for these yummy cookies!! DELICIOUS!! I love being Erica's "taste tester"...that's what friends are for!! hehehe!

  2. Ok - how do I sign-up to be one of those official taste testers???? I'll even drive to your house to pick the food up :)
