Have you ever heard of those people who go to Disneyland without kids? My husband used to think it was crazy that people would go to Disneyland without kids but then he married me and is totally on board the Disney train.
My husband and I have gone to Disney World and Disneyland without kids multiple times, solely for the food (and a few rides, of course).
I don’t think there is anything better than walking down Main Street U.S.A. and smelling all the delicious foods in the park!
One of our favorite places to get treats in Disneyland is at Pooh Corner Bakery right by Splash Mountain. That place is a hidden gem in the park filled with freshly made baked goods that are absolutely amazing.
We couldn’t stop dreaming of the bakery’s peanut butter cookies and created these Copycat Disneyland Peanut Butter Cookies that are thick, chewy, and so soft.
If you love Disneyland cookies, BE SURE TO TRY OUR DELICIOUS COPYCAT DISNEYLAND SNICKERDOODLE COOKIES. THEY ARE SOFT AND CHEWY. A FAMILY FAVORITE RECIPE!
HERE IS EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THESE COPYCAT DISNEYLAND PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES!
Copycat Disneyland Peanut Butter Cookies Ingredients:
- Peanut Butter
- Brown Sugar
- Baking Soda
- Peanut Butter Chi
Kitchen tools needed to make Disneyland Peanut Butter Cookies:
- Silicone Baking Mat: This baking mat can turn any pan into a nonstick surface making for easy clean up. It also provides consistent heat distribution and promotes even baking and browning to give you perfect cookies every time.
- Baking Sheet: I use these baking sheets for brownies, sheet cakes and cookies. They never rust and I love the rim on them to hold in batters and dough.
- Glass Mixing Bowl: I use this bowl to mix everything. It is safe in the oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher.

Find out how to make these easy and delicious Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies!
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!
These Copycat Disneyland Peanut Butter Cookies are thicker than traditional cookies, which I think gives them the perfect texture.
These cookies have a lightly crisped edge but a soft and chewy inside.
Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl cream together butter, peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, and brown sugar. Then add in vanilla and mix well.
Add in eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt together. Add to the peanut butter mixture and stir until combined.
Fold in the peanut butter chips.
Place 1/4 cup of sugar in a small bowl. Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll each ball into the sugar. Place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Press each cookie down with the back of a glass or something that is flat. Flatten cookie dough to about 1/2 inch in thickness.
Bake for 7-9 minutes. When done cooking, leave them on the warm cookie sheet for about 5 minutes. Then place them on a cooling 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.
Traditional peanut butter cookies have a criss-cross design on top, but these are gently flattened with a glass after the dough is rolled in sugar to give them an unfinished edge and a dense cookie center.
Why Are My Peanut Butter Cookies Dry/Crumbly?
Cookie dough can be a little fickle when it comes to altitude, so if you feel like your dough is a little too dry or crumbly you can add a little milk until you reach your desired consistency.
Can you freeze peanut butter cookies?
If you are making these cookies ahead of time or need to store extras, you can store them on your countertop for 3 days in an airtight container, or in a sealed freezer bag or container in the freezer for 1 month
