  • In a medium bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter and buttermilk. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients, then fold in chocolate chips. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place them 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Use a fork dipped in flour to flatten the balls slightly.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly brown at the edges. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

I had a craving for homemade big soft cookies but had no eggs at hand - this recipe fit the bill! They came out nice and soft but with a slightly crisp bottom. Really liked them and was super easy to make. And just because I felt like having some spicy flavor I also added some ground ginger(just a personal preference). Read More

quick easy cookie. i chose this one because it used different ingredients than the usual chocolate chip or oatmeal cookies i bake and i was glad to mix it up. The cookies are pretty light and taste good. On the first pan I forgot to flatten them and they stayed in ball shape. Read More

I can't beleive how quick and easy these were! I did have to bake for about 12-13 min but I think that is because I made the cookies a little on the large side as I ended up with 22 instead of the 30 the recipe said. I did end up using about 3/4 c. choc. chips since my boyfriend is a choc-o-holic. These are super tasty. A nice moist chewey cookie!! I will definately make again! Read More

I love these. I am always able to make my own little changes (whole wheat flour milk or water in place of the buttermilk etc.) to fit what I have on hand. This is a great recipe! Read More

My new favorite cookie recipe! I used natural peanut butter and substituted soymilk with 1/4 tbsp lemon juice for the buttermilk to make them vegan. They turned out soft and very good. Read More

These are really easy and really good cookies. the oats gave them a nice texture that you don't normally get in a cookie. I added a little bit of wheat germ to mine for more texture and health benefits and it made the cookies very good. Read More

I used oatmeal and crunchy peanut butter and they turned out well. Not my favourite cookie but nice as a change. I got 43 random sized medium to small very pretty cookies. Oh and I broke a spatula mixing the dough! Read More
