  • Large Bowl
  • Mixing Bowl
  • small bowl
  • Baking Sheet
  • parchment paper


  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • cups sugar divided
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
  • ¼ cup sugar


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, and brown sugar.
  • Add vanilla and mix.
  • Add the eggs in one at a time, mixing well after each one.
  • 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.
  • 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 rolled dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and gently press each dough ball down to 1/2 inch thick.
  • Bake the cookies for 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 over bake or turn brown at all. They will continue to set-up as they cool.


  • 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.
