Disneyland’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Is there a better smell than Main Street USA at Disneyland? I have heard rumors that they pump delicious “smells” into the park, just to make your mouth salivate . . . I don’t know if it’s true or not, but the smells get me every time!

One of my favorite places to visit is the bakery at Disneyland. Their cookies are seriously to die for – I love the Snickerdoodle cookies and these Peanut Butter ones are a close second! They are thick, chewy, and so, so soft (which is how a bakery cookie should be!). The cookies at Disneyland have big peanut butter chunks in them, but I wasn’t able to find any so I went with regular peanut butter chips (which still turned out delicious!). If you happen to come across any big peanut butter chunks that I can add to these cookies, please let me know!

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar together. Add vanilla and mix. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda and salt together. Add to mixture in mixing bowl and stir until completely combined. Fold in peanut butter chips.
  4. Roll dough into 1 1/2" balls. Place 1/4 cup sugar into a small bowl and roll each ball of dough in the sugar until completely covered. Place the dough balls on a baking sheet with a non-stick baking mat . Using a flat-bottomed drinking glass (or whatever flat-bottomed object you have around the house), gently press each dough ball down (I left mine pretty thick - these cookies will stay whatever thickness you press them down to).
  5. Bake the cookies 7-9 minutes. Remove cookies and allow them to cool on their cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, then move to a wire rack to finish cooling. These cookies are very soft - you don't want them to overbake or turn brown at all. They will continue to set-up as they cool.

      These are really fantastic. I don't even like peanut butter cookies and I couldn't stop eating them! The texture is great and the added chips just give them something extra. This recipe made so many that I ended up packaging them to give to teachers and neighbors, but now I need to make my family more because my kids are addicted ?
  1. Can you leave the chips out? Do you feel it would make a big difference in the structure of the cookie? I know it makes a difference if you leave ingredients out sometimes! I don't think hubby would like the chips. And since he's who I make them for....

    I just made these, I follow recipes exactly. These cookies tasted bland. Not enough sugar to flour or peanutbutter. When they came out of the oven, the color of the cookie was almost like a sugar cookies (with no sugar). If I could rate this cookie less than 5 stars, it'd be in the negative.
  3. I don't understand all the negativity in these comments. I have made this recipe probably twenty times since I found it, and I always do a double batch because people go nuts for them. They are the best cookie I have ever eaten - not bland at all, and I always use 4 cups of flour. I can't imagine using 2-1/4 cups of sugar and three eggs with only 2 cups of flour; it would turn this into pancake batter. Anyway, my family and all my friends and coworkers love these cookies!

    First off, I have not tried a recipe by the Six Sister's Stuff that I didn't like! These cookies are no exception! They are delicious! It is the first recipe I have found that I can use Adams Natural crunchy peanut butter (because that's what we always have) with good results! Good chewy soft texture, and the peanut butter chips make the cookie!! Well done Six Sisters' Stuff!! Thank you for another great recipe!
  5. These are absolutely delicious! I made them today and my family loved them. The only thing I did different was that I used extra crunchy peanut butter and added about 2 tablespoon more of smooth pb. These are not bland at all! Full of flavor; sweet, salty, crunchy and so soft at the same time..just magical. Mine baked right at 7 minutes. I used parchment paper on cookie sheet. Perfection. Thank you for this amazing recipe!
