Best Ever Easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

If there’s one thing I consider myself to be somewhat of an expert on in the baking world, it’s cookies.

Over the years, I’ve shared several of my best cookie recipes on the blog, including some of my favorites like Mom’s Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies, The Best Iced Oatmeal Cookies, and my Magical Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies. I’m pretty proud of the fact that my cookies consistently receive rave reviews for being the best, and I never share a cookie recipe with you unless it’s something I absolutely LOVE.

Because let’s be honest – cookies aren’t meant to be just “okay” or run of the mill, they’re meant to be absolutely delicious, full of flavor, and make you say “OMG, that’s the best cookie I’ve ever tasted!”

Which brings me to today’s cookie recipe for my Easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

From the first bite, you’ll know exactly why I say that these are the best ever peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, and trust me when I say you won’t be able to just eat one. From the slightly crispy outer edge to the soft, ooey gooey, peanut butter and chocolate chip center, these cookies are SO good.

But here’s the secret to making the best cookies – it’s all about getting the ingredient ratios just right. And since I’m pretty much a cookie connoisseur, these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are simply perfect.

Let’s dive into how to make the dough. Cookie dough that is.

Tips for Making the Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies:

First you’ll want to start with softened, room temperature butter. Not melted and not hard either. It will be soft to the touch but still in tact. Normally I always use unsalted butter for my cookies, but for this recipe I prefer salted. The sweet and salty combo is amazing and I highly recommend you try it (but feel free to use whichever you have on hand).

Place your softened butter in a large mixing bowl and cream together with the creamy peanut butter until smooth. I like using an electric hand mixer for this part, but you can also do it by hand. Add in brown sugar and sugar and mix together until creamy. Add room temperature eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined.

Next, begin adding in your flour 1/2 cup at a time until fully incorporated and your cookie dough has formed. Lastly stir in your chocolate chips, reserving some of the chocolate chips to add to the tops of the cookies before baking, if desired.

The next step is crucial, and if you’ve ignored everything else I’ve said up to this point DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.

Chill your cookie dough. Yes, I know it’s hard to wait and you want those cookies really bad, but this cookie dough is a softer dough and if you want your cookies to be perfectly soft and thick when you bake them, then you’re gonna want to chill the dough.

I recommend covering with plastic wrap and chilling the cookie dough for a minimum of 2 hours or even overnight if you have the time. This not only ensures your cookies keep their shape when you bake them, but it further intensifies the delicious peanut butter and chocolate chip flavor.

Once chilled, use a small cookie scoop like this one and place cookie dough balls spaced evenly apart on a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. If desired, add on a few chocolate chips to the tops of each cookie dough ball.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until the sides and tops are lightly golden. Times may vary and require less or more time depending on your oven.

Once fully baked, remove from the oven and let cool on the pan for 3 minutes, before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool for 7 minutes. Serve cookies warm and enjoy, and store any leftovers in an airtight container.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 sticks salted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (reserve some for the tops of the cookies)

Instructions

  • Start by placing your softened butter in a large mixing bowl and cream together with the creamy peanut butter until smooth. I like using electric hand mixer for this part, but you can also do it by hand.
  • Add in brown sugar and sugar and mix together until creamy. Add room temperature eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined.
  • Next, begin adding in your flour 1/2 cup at a time until fully incorporated and your cookie dough has formed.

  • Using a small cookie scoop like this one place cookie dough balls evenly spaced apart on a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. If desired, add on a few chocolate chips to the tops of each cookie dough ball.
  • Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until the sides and tops are lightly golden. Times may vary and require less or more time depending on your oven.

Notes

  • You can use salted or unsalted butter in this recipe, I just prefer salted for this one.
  • This recipe makes A LOT of cookies, so you can easily make a half batch which makes about 23 cookies. Just cut down to 1 stick butter, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla, 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter, 1 tbsp + 2 1/4 tsp sugar, 1/4 cup light brown sugar, 1 cup of chocolate chips, and 1 cup, 1 tbsp + 1 tsp flour.

    Hi, I tried these & I’m not accustom to using self rising flour, I found them to be very “chalky/crumbly” was it the flour? Just curious as I’ve never used that flour in a recipe, was so looking forward to but didn’t find edible 🙁

      Hi Jen, So sorry your cookies didn’t turn out. If the dough was crumbly/chalky it sounds like you used too much flour, as this dough is traditionally quite soft. Make sure you’re using measuring cups for getting out the right amount of flour. You also want to make sure the flour you are using isn’t expired. The only difference in self rising flour from all purpose flour is that it has the rising agent in it, so it wouldn’t change the texture of your cookies. Hope you’ll give it another try – these are excellent cookies!

      I had a similar result in the texture. I think it was too much flour but I KNOW I used the correct amount. I always pre measure and re measure when baking. The flavor is good though so I may try again and reduce the flour some.

        Sorry to hear you had an issue as well. Too much flour can definitely make the texture turn out too dry and crumbly. Keep in mind humidity and weather can also impact the way baked goods turn out. Hope you’ll give them a try again and they turn out great! 🙂
