Peanut Butter Cookies

Classic old school cookies for sure but that’s the great thing about good classics, they never lose their appeal. I’ve been making these for years and they never disappoint, with a perfect crisp/chewiness that melts in your mouth. This recipe made just over 100 cookies using a 1 oz scoop, a size I prefer as it keeps my personal consumption in check!  I put some in the cookie jar and the rest I toss into a freezer bag for future cookie jar replenishing.


Some favorite variations to this cookie I love are adding chunks of white chocolate to the dough, that combination has such a velvety richness turning it into a truly decadent morsel. Roasted or raw whole peanuts can go in too but since I use crunchy Peanut Butter I find that is enough. In this batch I used Chocolate Chips.


It’s a good idea to have a lot of these Peanut Butter Cookies on hand because they tend to disappear quickly!
