Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whoa. No post yesterday. What happened? The day just flew by. Sorry about that.

Good thing I have a cookie recipe to make it up to you.

It’s a good one, too.

Once again, however, I’m going to have to give the credit to Mark. Truth be told, he’s just better at coming up with cookie recipes than I am.

I’m woman enough to admit it.

Anyway, on our very married Saturday, as I mentioned, Mark and I made cookies.

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, to be specific.

Yes, they were as good as they look.

We didn’t look as good, but that’s no big deal.

Noooo big deal at all.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

makes 2 dozen cookies


  • 1 1/3 sticks butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add egg and cream again. Add peanut butter. Cream again.

In a separate bowl, sift together all dry ingredients.

Add dry mixture to wet mixture and mix until just combined.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Form dough into balls, then press into circles. If desired, press fork into tops.

The cookies will not spread.

Bake 10 minutes and cool on a cooling rack.


They might even be impress-a-boy-worthy.

You know, if you were trying to do that sort of thing.
