These are my favorite cookies to bring out when harvest comes! Peanut butter is just about my favorite thing in the world, not to mention cookies being pretty much the most versatile dessert ever.
Their consistency is just right, they’re so flavorful, and you can make them as monster-y or as plain as you would like! If all you have on hand is chocolate chips, they will taste just as delicious.
I doubled this recipe, so the photos will look a bit more “full” than one batch.
Preheat the oven to 350. Mix 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar & 1/2 cup brown sugar.
Add 2 eggs & 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
Add 1/2 cup peanut butter.
Add 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda & 1 teaspoon salt.
Add whatever “peanut-butter-y” goodies you wish! I added peanut butter m&m’s, peanut butter chips, & chocolate chips. Other good options are Reese’s Pieces, peanut butter cups, or peanut m&m’s.
Separate into balls on a greased cookie sheet. I personally love to use foil. I don’t know why, it’s just what I’ve always done.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Don’t overbake! If they don’t look quite done, but are beginning to brown around the edges, get them out.
