Yum!April 22, 2013 By rachemily
Great recipe! I substituted Reese Peanut Butter Chips for regular chocolate chips and used just a half cup instead of 1 cup. I might use 1 cup of flour instead of 1 1/4 cup but other than that, fantastic recipe!

Absolutely deliciousnessMarch 17, 2013 By msemmylu
These cookies were absolutely amazing. I doubled the recipe and used half milk chocolate chips and half dark chocolate chips. I have never made a chocolate chip cookie that was this soft and chewy.

Beware Natural Peanut Butter...January 24, 2013 By rygy223
So on the whole this recipe delivered a decent cookie; however, they weren't chewy in the least. I used natural peanut butter (you know the kind that separates if left to sit out). The cookies, no matter how I adjusted baking times and temps over the six rounds, did not flatten and become chewy the way a chocolate chip cookie normally does. Is this due to lack of hydrogenated palm oil in store-bought peanut butter? Wishing I hadn't done this experiement...

Perfect!December 24, 2012 By nicoole16
I made a double batch of these and wanted to eat the full batch right away. I am very new to cooking, and even I could not mess up this recipe. I cooked both batches at 300 degrees for 15 minutes--I love my cookies on the chewy side! Love, love, love it!

DELISH!!!November 20, 2012 By mandamama11
I made these today, in a double batch. I left the mix on the counter while cooking so each ball I rolled individually before I plopped it on the cookie sheet. I also flattened with a fork, because I say some people say theirs was too chewy. I am not a fan of Peanut butter cookies, I infact only made these for my husband and daughter.. but turns out.. MAMA LIKEY! LOL

De-licious! TieemOctober 24, 2012 By sdenis
With a few adjustments, these cookies were sophisticated and delicious treats that all my fabulous guests loved! I took the basic recipe, added some eastern Israeli and Indian spices such as cinnamon, chai, ginger, almonds, toffee, marshmallows, mace, nutmeg, shaved chocolate, yeast instead of baking soda, a splash of hot milk to make the yeast rise, cardamom, and if i had orange peel. I rolled them larger that usual, places six in the oven at time that is set in celcius, set half a marshmallow on top, insert an almond, and sprinkle some toffee. They were D-LiCIOUSSSS.

Wish I had read the reviews before handMarch 04, 2012 By cindush
I usually read through the reviews but was in a rush today and didn't. Just tried one of the cookies I made from this recipe and the the cookies look beautiful but they are crumbly. Even when a recipe has five or even almost five stars you still need to check the reviews. They taste good though, the crumbs :). Would make again but with changes as others suggested.

Used Margarine and Extra PBFebruary 23, 2012 By passionglass
loved the recipe as a guide but made these substitutions based on reviews. i made these for myself as i am a PB and chocolate junkie. to prevent dry cookies or lack of peanut butter flavor, here's what i did to make perfect cookies. - i used margarine instead of butter for lower cholesterol. - i used 3/4 cup of crunchy peanut butter, not 1/2 cup. - i used 4oz of chopped and shaved semi-sweet baking bar instead of chips. all the tiny shavings scattered thru the cookie really gave deep flavor. delicious! - i rolled into 1.5"" balls and made 24 cookies. - i cooked on parchment paper on non stick sheet for 9 minutes at 375 degrees, removed cookies and used fork to flatten balls and returned to oven for one more minute. then removed. - i let cool on cookie tray and cookies have slightly crisp edges with cooked but very soft inside. i love them in the fridge or frozen also. they are not dry and don't crumble.

Good cookie overallFebruary 20, 2012 By herefernow
For some reason these were really crumbly, not quite as chewy/cohesive as I'd like and not as peanut-buttery as I'd hoped. Still a very solid peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. :)

amaz-za-zing!!!January 14, 2012 By kpawlowicz
Followed the recipe word for word and these cookies come out soooo incredibly good. Crispy around the edge and chewy in the middle. Refrigerated the dough for about 20 minutes before baking the first batch then placed cookie dough back in fridge between baking. Baked for 10 minutes. I used ""Imperial"" butter, un-bleached flour, skippy creamy & hersheys semi-sweet chocolate chips. Used an ice cream scooper to measure out my balls and lightly smashed them down with my fingers to flatten. Cookies spread a little, they become about 2 1/2 -3 inches in diameter after baking. Great recipe!

I bake often, but for some reason, these cookies did not turn out right. They smell absolutely delish but they did not flatten out, leaving the middles uncooked. When I added the dry mix to the PB mix, it became very dry and pebbley...

ehDecember 07, 2011 By yummies03
cookies tasted good, but they werent fluffy. not enough dry ingredients to wet ingredients ratio. maybe some more flour and they'd be perfect. and a LITTLE more peanut butter.

So good I doubled the batch but don't overbake.July 16, 2011 By okidoll
Very good cookies. Just the right amount of chocolate chips and peanut butter. I will say that 375 for 12 minutes is too done for my taste. I like a soft cookie that isn't brown -especially for peanut butter cookies. I would suggest 350 for 12 minutes, but that's a personal preference. I also doubled this recipe and it worked just fine.

Great cookies!!!March 25, 2011 By XCelestialSongX
I just baked these cookies a little while ago & they came out perfect! The only thing I would recommend is increasing the baking time. They definitely weren't ready after 12 minutes. They were done after about 20. But they still turned out great! So delicious! Really terrific recipe. I will definitely be baking these again in the future. :-)

AMAZING COOKIES!!February 12, 2011 By prettycakes
I made these today for the first time, and they are easy and AMAZING! They are not heavy on the peanut butter flavor, which was fine with me. (As a side note--I actually used 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour and 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour. And I added a dash of vanilla extract, and used semisweet chocolate chunks instead of chips.) For moist, chewy cookies I only needed to bake mine for 8 minutes. So, check yours early to not overbake! This recipe has been permanently added to my recipe box! YUM!!! :)

I used this as a base for high altitude!May 30, 2010 By snackinator
the elusive peanut butter cookie at high altitude...I have been trying to get this right for at least a year now. So I started with a new base recipe and it worked! their a little cakeyer than I think is ideal, but the flavor is perfect! Heres what I adjusted* for all of you other high altitude bakers! 1/2C. butter *1/4C. white sugar 1/2C. brown sugar 1 egg 1 1/4C. AP Flour *1/4t. Baking Powder *1/4t. Baking Soda 1/4t. salt *1/2t. vanilla *3T water, milk, cream or 1/2 and 1/2 Use the same creaming process, but raise your bake temp to just shy of 400 degrees. This is for 5200 above sea level. Thanks for the awesome recipe! its so close to what I remember my grandma baking!

I made these for my Dad for his Birthday because he likes peanut butter, and they were super nummy. Not too cakey, not to hard, just perfect consistency. I used half peanut butter chips with the chocolate chips, and I think it added to the taste for the better.

Super Yum!January 24, 2010 By Katemon
This has been one of my main go-to cookie recipes for over a year now. They always turn out perfectly. Try throwing in a handful or so of butterscotch chips along with the chocolate chips for an extra special flavor combo. : )

I tweaked the recipe a bit.November 14, 2009 By HaroldRose
This is a good recipe. I used whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup of chopped 100% baking chocolate (instead of what was recommened) and 1/2 cup of coconut. I also added to 1/2 cup of honey for extra sweetening (since the chocolate that I used was unsweetened).

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip CookiesNovember 04, 2008 By SammysThird
I made these for the first time today. Great cookie - great texture and great taste. I did add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and made them larger using an ice cream scoop. I'm adding these to my recipes and will be making them again.

Quick, easy and delicious!July 20, 2008 By KP1223
I found this recipe easy to make and absolutely delicious. I decided to double the recipe because it didn't seem like it was going to make enough cookies. The cookies came out perfect! They were fluffy, soft, chewy and the chocolate chips melted in your mouth. I baked them for 10-11 mins. I definitely recommend these to anyone who likes a combo of peanut butter and chocolate.

Delicious!June 05, 2008 By HowlingMoonDog
I am so happy I found this recipe. I used a natural type of peanut butter (one that is not as sweet as your average peanut butters.) So I had to add about 3/4 tsp. of vanilla extract. I'm assuming this is not as necessary if you use regular old peanut butter. I will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing!

Best EverMarch 28, 2008 By appletree3
My family loves these cookies, since I found it on the internet I have been making them at least once a week. I tend to use margarine more often since we have it on hand as well I add extra peanut butter and never measure the chocolate chips. These are the best cookies I have tasted in a long time! They are not too cruchy but not too soft - AMAZING!!!

Chocolate lovers unite!March 02, 2008 By HiDVan
This is the best cookie recipe I've ever made! My husband and kids liked it so much I've made it three times in 2 weeks. I doubled the recipe so my husband could take some to work and the cookies turned out great. I also threw in the entire bag of chocolate chips and used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips. No matter what you do, you can't mess this one up. It tastes delicious!

My All Time FavoriteJuly 31, 2007 By bake_love18
These cookies are what I've been searching for. : )They are exactly what I like in a cookie...thick and dense not thin and flat, they aren't not overly moist, and they have a wonderful hint of PB. I like to use these cookies for ice cream sandwiches because they hold up well. For these cookies, I usually use salted butter instead of unsalted butter so I decrease the salt a bit. I add about a dash of vanilla and I almost always add more than 1/2 cup of peanut butter. You just have to try these!
