If there’s one cookie I’d pass up a good peanut butter cookie for, it would have to be a chocolate chip cookie. Although, when faced with both at once, I’m not sure I’d be able to choose!

So why not combine the two and enjoy both at once? A peanut butter chocolate chip cookie is the ultimate cookie lovers dream.

A thick, chewy cookie loaded with peanut butter flavor and filled with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Make sure you have a glass of milk on-hand when you enjoy these easy cookies.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Make sure you use a creamy peanut butter that’s commercial brand rather than an organic or natural peanut butter. The organic and natural peanut butters tend to separate and aren’t as good for baking.
  • I always use a combination of white sugar and brown sugar. The white sugar makes it light and fluffy and the brown sugar helps make it chewy and gives it an extra depth of flavor.
  • A small ice cream scoop is the perfect amount of dough for these cookies. Plus using a scoop helps ensure that all your cookies are the same size and will cook evenly.
  • These cookies freeze really well. You can freeze them uncooked or already cooked. Just place in a freezer bag or airtight container until you’re ready to eat.
  • You can use semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips for this recipe.
  • These cookies are extra good with a sprinkle of sea salt on top!
