Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Story:

I am not one of those people that sits around and eats peanut butter with a spoon.  Now, if it’s Nutella we’re talking about…then I can recall many Friday nights when it was just me and a jar of that chocolately goodness.  But I never really acquired the peanut butter taste because my brother is allergic.  That plus the Barney episode where everyone’s mouths are glued shut by peanut butter really scared me away from the stuff.  But oh my, these cookies are just fabulous.  They don’t overwhelm me with the peanut taste and it’s balanced out by rich chocolate chips.  And it doesn’t hurt that they look beautiful as well.[end-story]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 36 Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons water
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bag chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with parchment paper if available. (If not, an ungreased cookies sheet will do just fine.)
2. In a large bowl, beat butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and sugar together until creamy. About 3 minutes. Scrape down bowl as needed.
3. On low, beat in eggs one at a time.
4. Add vanilla, honey and water and mix only until combined.
5. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda and salt together.
6. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix only until combined.
7. Stir in chocolate chips.
8. Place dough balls the size of golf balls onto cookie sheets and bake for 8-11 minutes.
9. Let cool on cooling racks and enjoy with a big glass of cold milk.

    I am have been looking for the BEST peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for a long time. I’ll give these a try after I finished with midterms. I can’t wait till summer, so I can have more time to bake. I love Nutella as well. I would eat it directly from the jar if my mom would not be mad at me. Are there Nutella cookies? I head about them before, but I never see them exist.

    I could definitely eat a spoonful of peanut butter. In fact, just yesterday, my daughter asked me if she could do it! I think this cookie recipe looks like a must-have!

    Hi! Love all your recipes and use a lot of them all the time. I just made the dough for these but forgot to add the water and only used a teaspoon of vanilla. Is it really a tablespoon? It looked like so much it scared me lol. They should come out ok right?
