Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies

These are my go-to cookie when it's after dinner and I'm craving a quick cookie for dessert.

My friend Marcia and I both found this recipe at the same time a few years back. I called her to tell her about it and vice versa. I’ve been making it ever since. I’m not even sure where I first saw it, I think in my Name Brand Cookie cookbook maybe.

Anyway, as is typical for recipes I like, it’s fast and easy and has few ingredients.


Few ingredients...super easy!

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 cup chocolate chips (I use semi sweet)

1 cup peanut butter

1 egg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Put all ingredients into bowl and mix thoroughly.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, about 2″ apart. Press down lightly with fork and sprinkle a little sugar on top of each one.

Bake 12 minutes until set. *check for done at 10 minutes, 12 may be too long depending on your oven.

Let stand on cookie sheet 2 minutes, remove to wire cooling rack. Cool completely.

Makes 2 dozen
