About the Recipe

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


Tip One: Be sure to use ‘conventional’ peanut butter spread for this recipe, not the all-natural kind of peanut butter which separates.

Tip Two: If you have the time, chilling the dough in the fridge for at least 24 hours enhances the flavor and texture of the baked cookies. Think of it as a marinating period!

Tip Three: To boost the flavor, sprinkle the cookies with some flaky sea salt when they come out of the oven!
