Peanut Butter Cookies

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I’m sharing a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies. I made these a long time ago and really liked them! These are unique in that they have white chocolate chips in them in addition to the peanut butter chips, which I think makes them extra delicious. After writing this post, I’m totally craving them and am going to have to whip up another batch soon!


Peanut Butter Cookies

Adapted from: Stylish Cuisine



1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup peanut butter

3/4 cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon for sprinkling

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup peanut butter chips

1/2 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium/large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt.  Set aside.

In a large(er) bowl, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy. Then, add the sugars and beat until smooth. Next, add the egg and mix well. Last, add the milk and the vanilla extract.

To the butter and peanut butter mixture, add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in the peanut butter and chocolate chips.

Place sprinkling sugar on a separate plate. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into the sugar, then onto ungreased cookie sheets. Be sure to leave several inches between for expansion. Finally, using a fork, lightly indent with a criss-cross pattern, but do not overly flatten cookies.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not over bake.

Cool the cookies on the sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a rack to cool completely.


This recipe yields about 3 dozen cookies.

    Those looks delicious. The only thing is my boyfriend wouldn’t eat them because they contain both peanut butter and chocolate. I can’t decide whether that’s an advantage or a disadvantage!

      I’d say that’s an advantage! 😛 Sometimes if I’m worried I’ll eat them all by myself I’ll freeze a bag of them. Bonus is I have delicious treats (that I don’t have to bake) some time in the future!

    They sound great. I love the look of the photos, the cookies craggy with flecks of salt. yum
