Keyword: chocolate chip peanut butter cookie
Servings: 36 cookies


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips optional


  • With a hand mixer, cream together the peanut butter, butter, white sugar and brown sugar until blended.
  • Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Add flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture and mix together. Stir in chocolate chips at this point if desired.
  • Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough and roll into balls.
  • Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets (I used parchment paper since my cookies tend to burn on my darker pans). Press each ball once with a fork.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375. Don’t overcook! These cookies are much better soft and just barely cooked all the way through! Enjoy!
