To Die For Peanut Butter Cookies

17 Oct

I have been searching and searching for the perfect peanut butter cookie, and I  have lost count of the amount of recipes I’ve tried. There is always something wrong, weather it is they aren’t chewy enough or they are too flat or the recipe is too complicated or simply they aren’t peanut buttery enough…. until now! These are literally the best peanut butter cookies ever. To me they taste like a peanut butter cup in a cookie but 100 times better. Just Magnificent! So if you have been struggling with this major (It really is major!) problem as well, try this and leave me a comment to tell me how you got on! I’d love to hear you’re feedback. If you do not agree with my very long statement above (Sorry there was just no way to shorten it!) then tell me and I will resume my search! Thanks! 🙂

To Die For Peanut Butter Cookies (Makes about 16 big cookies)

1 1/4 cup plain flour

3/4tsp baking soda

1/2tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup chunky peanut butter, room temperature

3/4 cup castor sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 egg

1 tbsp milk

1/2 cup chocolate chips, or more if you want!

  • Preheat oven to 180ºc/350ºf. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • With an electric mixer, beat the butter and peanut butter until soft and fluffy. About 4-5mins.
  • Beat in the sugars until combined and creamy. Beat in the egg, milk and chocolate chips.
  • Put 1-2tbsp of castor sugar on a plate, roll the dough into balls and coat in sugar. Place on a non greased baking tray, far apart then using a fork or spatula very slightly flatten the cookie. Be careful not to flatten too much as the cookies will spread and flatten while baking. As you can see in the pictures, I flatten mine too much but I’ll definitely learn from that mistake.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 mins. Make sure not to overcook them. They are done when they are slightly golden on top,but they will not feel done to the touch. Just take my word for it.
  • Let cool on the tray for about 5mins then transfer to a cooling rack and leave  a comment about how you got on! thanks!
