Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I recently made these delicious cookies for the fun Girl’s Night In gathering Wendy at Around My Family Table hosted. She featured the recipe on her site yesterday and I wanted to give my readers a chance to make these yummy cookies, too. This recipe is based on the time-tested Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe with a few alterations, mainly the addition of peanut butter chips and an increase in the overall amount of chips used. The cookies still have that old-fashioned taste, but adding the peanut butter chips completes the flavor.


Chocolate and PB Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips

Preheat  oven to 375° F.  Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl.  Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla in large mixing bowl until creamy.  Add eggs, one at a time.  Beat well after each addition.  Gradually add flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture. Gently stir in chocolate and peanut butter chips.  Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

    Can I have some please??!

  3. My kids (and husband) would love these. The addition of the peanut butter chips sounds good. I might add a few butterscotch chips too!
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Love anything with the PB and choc chip mix…yummy boost for the kiddos! Quick question, have you ever tried making this with wheat flour? Trying to explore the healthy options too 🙂

  5. Those sound delicious! Adding them to my list of recipes to try. 🙂

  6. These sound wonderful! I love the chocolate & peanut butter mixture in just about everything!

  7. Marina, I have made a similar recipe with 1/2 whole wheat flour, but more than 1/2 and I think they get too dense.

  8. Well I guess I’m going to the store! These sound so good!

  9. Looks yummy! We may have to try this soon 🙂
