My Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Very good cookies. I added peanut butter chips. My only suggestion would be to bake at 375 for 10 minutes (instead of 12-15 as suggested in the recipe) to ensure a chewy cookie — after being in the oven for 10 minutes my cookies had a slightly crunchy edge with a chewy center. All in all very good!!

I’ve tried ALOT of recipes, and this is the very best! I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect. I did divide the dough and added milk chocolate chips with peanut butter chips to some of it and butterscotch chips to some. Those were great too as well as the cookies without chips. You don’t have to refrigerate this dough at all, it’s ready to use as soon as you make it. Good job!! I would give this 10 or more stars if possible!
