This peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe is super easy to make!
With about 10 minutes of prep time and a few minutes in the oven to bake, you can have hot and ready cookies in no time flat!
All you have to do is:
- Combine the butter, peanut butter and sugars until they’re well mixed

- Then scoop out a bunch of cookies and bake them on a cookie sheet.
The recipe says that you can make 48, but you can make more or less depending on the size you want them to be. Just remember to adjust the baking time and arrange them on the pan to accommodate the adaptions.
How do you keep cookies soft and chewy?
Ever experience a cookie go from soft and chewy to stale and rock hard (or brittle) within a few hours? It’s such a disappointment, but the good news is that it is entirely fixable!
There are so many different ways that you can make your chocolate chip peanut butter cookies soft and chewy if they become stale.
- Store the cookies in a zipper-lock bag at room temperature with a slice of bread inside.
- Stick a few apple slices in an air-tight container with your hard cookies.
- Steam the cookies in the microwave (this can also be a good way to recreate that “fresh from the oven” feel!
- Simply wrap stale cookies in a damp paper towel and microwave them for about 10 seconds.
Another great way to save them (with minimal effort) is to invest in a Terracotta bear. These bears work for pretty much anything in the kitchen that can become stale such as baked goods and brown sugar. Damped the bear, dab them dry and place in a sealed container with the item you want to freshen up. Wait overnight, and it’s like everything is as good as new.
So now that you know the secrets to make the perfect cookie, nothing is stopping you from enjoying this peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe!
