I recently made a batch of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip n’ Nut Cookies using a recipe a dear friend gave me over 20 years ago. Soft peanut butter cookies filled with milk chocolate chips and chopped peanuts make these simple old-fashioned cookies a real taste treat!

I slightly tweaked her delicious recipe to include chopped dry roasted peanuts to the mix (you can also use cocktail peanuts), and enjoy the extra little bit of crunch and peanut flavor the nuts bring to the cookie.  I made large cookies and the recipe yielded about 3½ dozen, but if you need a larger quantity, simply make the cookies smaller! Here’s how easy the cookies are to prepare:

How To Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream together room temperature butter, creamy peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and eggs until well combined.  In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture. Continue to beat on low, adding a little flour at a time, until all dough is fully mixed together.

Stir in milk chocolate chips and chopped peanuts. I used chopped dry roasted peanuts, but cocktail peanuts would be fine, as well.

If making large cookies, drop the dough by heaping Tablespoons onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet. If you’re going to make smaller cookies (with greater quantity), drop by rounded teaspoons.

Keep the dough for the cookies about 2 inches apart because they will spread while baking.  I try to form each one into a circle shape by using my clean hands around the edges, then pat them down on top a bit, to flatten them slightly.

Bake Times For Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bake the large cookies at 375 degrees.  They take between 12 and 14 minutes to fully cook and turn slightly golden brown around edges. Smaller cookies will cook in about 9-10 minutes. When done, remove cookies from oven; let them cool for 2-3 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Now you know how to make this simple old-fashioned, delicious cookie for those you love.  I think they get better as they sit, because they seem to get more chewy the next day!

You Can Freeze The Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Dough

I set aside some of the dough, shaped it into 2 logs, then tightly wrapped each in plastic wrap, then aluminum foil, and froze 2 packages of dough to use another time! That way, when we crave homemade cookies, all I have to do is cut, slice and bake a small batch of these yummy cookies!

Servings: 42 (approx. 3½ dozen)
Calories Per Serving: 268 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
  • cups butter (room temp.)
  • cups creamy peanut butter
  • cups granulated sugar
  • cups packed brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • cups all purpose flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts (can substitute cocktail peanuts)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using electric mixer, cream softened butter, creamy peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and eggs until well combined. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add flour mix to peanut butter mixture. Continue to beat on low, adding a little flour at a time, until ingredients are fully combined.
  2. Stir in milk chocolate chips and chopped peanuts.
  3. If making large sized cookies, drop dough by heaping Tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet (*small cookies, drop by teaspoonfuls). Keep cookie dough about 2 inches apart as they will spread while baking. Shape each cookie into a circle by using hands around the edges; pat down the top to flatten them slightly.
  4. Bake cookies at 375 degrees. Large cookies will take 12 -14 minutes to fully cook and turn slightly golden brown around edges. Smaller cookies will take about 9-10 minutes. When done, remove cookies from oven; let them rest for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Recipe Notes

The large cookies are about 3 inches in diameter. If you want to make smaller cookers (more quantity), just use rounded teaspoonfuls, instead of Tablespoonfuls of dough, and bake for less time.
