Warm and chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are delicious!

It had been a while since I had made peanut butter cookies, but since the holidays are approaching, I've been in the mood for baking. Yesterday, I decided to bake chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. My husband loves these cookies, and I knew he would be very happy to see them in the jar.

This time, I decided to reduce the amount of granulated sugar called for in the original recipe because I added semi-sweet chocolate chips into the mixture. However, you're welcome to use the regular amount of granulated sugar, or you could choose to replace it entirely. If you'd like to replace it, you could substitute more dark brown sugar.

I also found that adding dark or light corn syrup will make the cookies taste even better. If you'd like to use another liquid sweetener in place of corn syrup, possible substitutes include agave nectar, malt syrup, maple syrup, molasses, or golden syrup. Let just say you can use whatever you have in the pantry.

In terms of the peanut butter, I prefer to use the creamy kind in order to get a smoother texture in my cookies. If you prefer the chunky kind, I'm pretty sure that that would work well, too. Also, if you like a richer, more peanut-y taste, you can add more peanut butter to the mixture.

These cookies are super easy to make. Since my husband loves cookies that are chewy and soft, I don't let them bake for too long. In my oven, 14 minutes is the perfect length of time to make these cookies extra soft and chewy.

I hope you and your family will enjoy these cookies as much as we do!

Let's see the full ingredients.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  8. Use an ice-cream scoop or a spoon to drop the cookies onto the pan.
  9. For chewy cookies, bake for 14 minutes.
