SOFT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

November 19, 2013

Last week, I shared a preview picture on my instagram of what I was baking these pb cookies for: Puppy Chow Cookies. (!) Well, I am nothing if not an indulger of theatrics, so I will let the suspense slowly build for the revolutionary treats on Sunday.

Today – step one. (And fortunately, it is a self-sufficient step that is entirely useful on its own). Peanut Butter Cookies! And soft ones at that. Crunchy and crisp cookies are not in my line of business. These are gooey, chewy, and (insert any other delightful word ending in -ooey.)

    Just got done making these cookies and Oh my they are delicious. Perfect and dough was smooth. Easy to do will definetly make again. I got 38 cookies out of it but i made them regular size. Yumm!

  • Becca

    I added an extra egg because the dough didn’t seem to hold up, but considering that I live in a desert, it makes sense. Great recipe! Thank you, kindly!

    I just made half a batch with my 2 year-old-son and the mixture made fifteen for us…with a spare bit of raw dough for eating.They are in the oven as I write this If the biscuits are anything like the mixture they are a winner. This is simple and doesn’t require heaps of peanut butter! The mixture is beautifully smooth! Can’t wait to eat them!

    They crumbled when I took them out of the oven. This could be because I didn’t have any sugar in the house, so I substituted with golden syrup, which is thick syrupy cane sugar.

    Just made these with my daughter. We added 1/2C Mini Reese Pieces and 1/2C Semi-sweet Chocolate chips. YUMMY!

  • Kim Hebb

    This is an excellent recipe. Very easy. Will make again. :)
    Thanks

  • I just made your cookies and they were perfectly smooth & soft. This recipe will definitely be one that I make again. Thank you!

  • Tabitha

    Hi Rachel! I just went to print your recipe so I could make these soon and I just wanted to say THANK YOU seriously so much for making that so easy! I absolutely cannot stand when recipe pages are over 1 page long and riddled with useless links and ads. You made this so seamless and I commend you for it!! <3 Can't wait to make these! Your pictures look amazing!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Great! Thanks Tabitha.

  • Serena

    These were amazing!! Baked with my friend, we accidentally added 1 whole cup of butter instead of 1/2 a cup :( so we just added more flour! Also we only used about 1/4 a teaspoon of salt! These are so good they melt in your mouth, texture is similar to those lofthouse soft sugar cookies but the peanut butter flavor is mouthwatering. Will make again and again!
