  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

  • In a large bowl, beat butter, peanut butter, and vanilla with an electric mixer until well blended. Beat in both sugars. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Stir in half of the dry ingredients into the mixture. Add eggs one at a time, blending well after each addition. Mix in remaining ingredients. Stir in peanut butter chips.

  • For each cookie, roll 1 heaping tablespoon full of dough into 1 3/4 inch diameter ball. Arrange balls 2 1/2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Using the back of fork, flatten dough balls and form a crosshatch on tops.

  • Bake cookies until dry on top, about 15 minutes.

  • Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer cookies to cooling racks to cool completely.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Excellent recipe turned out great! (The batter alone is to die for...:) Actually made the exact amount of cookies stated and the bake time was even accurate too. Read More

I have never been a big fan of peanut butter cookies. I made these for my boyfriend and I. I ended eating up most of them. I couldn't stop eating them. They were very addicting. I did use the tip and added a 1/4 cup more of peanut butter. Inormally putt my cookies in something so not to lose the moisture but with these there was no need. The sat out for a few days and were as moist and yummy as when i took then off thebaking sheet. Great recipe. I will be making these again. Read More

Really good tender and crumbly and slightly chewy. I used 1 C whole wheat pastry flour and mostly white flour with a little molasses as I had run out of brown sugar. I split the batch and added peanut chips to one half and chocolate chips to the other. Read More

These cookies were delicious! I did change it a little by using less peanut butter chips (about 1.5 cups) and after the cookies had cooled I melted some chocolate and paraffin wax in a double boiler and drizzled it on top. Everyone loved them! Read More

I loved this recipe. I did a few things differently so I gave it 4 stars since I can't rate something I didn't follow to a tee. I LOVE PB so I added almost a full cup of unsalted chopped peanuts and used only 1 1/2 cups of the PB chips. I also added about 1/4 cup of honey. I wish I tried more because I couldn't really taste it. Even after that it was not too sweet which is the way I like them. I also prefer the lower cooking time - about 12 minutes. I did not feel the batter was crumbly but didn't care because I did not want to bother with shaping them and doing the criss-cross. I used an ice cream scoop only smooshed them down a tiny bit and I love how they retained their height and irregular shape that way. Absolutely my favorite PB cookies so far. Read More
