try extra peanut butter & chips

 Star(s)

ELIZABETH DELINE from Marysville, MI

my mother's sunday school class loves any cookie with peanut butter so we tried this recipe. she increased the peanut butter to 3/4 cup and instead of all chocolate chips we mixed chocolate & peanut butter chips. we say excellent because not only did the class (senior adults) eat almost all of them, they want this one again!

    We are addicted to these cookies!

    Barbara Gentile from Houston, TX

    I increased the peanut butter to 1 cup, used half crisco & half butter, used semi sweet chocolate chips, omited the sugar topping & did not flatten the cookies. Everyone that tastes these cookies asks for the recipe. They are fabulous.

    GREAT!

    Courtney Yaste from KY

    These cookies were great! I couldn't get them out of the oven quick enough for my company. My husband loves them. I am sure I will be baking again. I did add a 1/2 c. more flour than it called for!

    Great with PB Chips Too!

    Naomi Reen from State College, PA

    These cookies are the perfect mix of crunch and melt-in-your-mouth goodness. I am unable to eat chocolate, but I added peanut butter chips, and they worked very well.

  •  Star(s)

    Sooo Good!

    Tara Crook from Boise, ID

    These are sooo good and so easy! Very light & delicious! I will totally make again! A nice alternative to regular chocolate chip cookies.

    YUM-E

    Sharon Gonzalez from Azusa, CA

    I know 'YUM-E' is not a word, but, these cookies are great! I altered it by adding a teaspoon of cinnamon and added about 1 3/4 cup oats.

  •  Star(s)

    Definately worth a try

    MARY SELL from ,

    This recipe makes a very tender cookie with a light peanut butter taste (not overwhelming). The only alteration I did in the recipe was to use 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. My family LOVES them--a little too much!

    Peanut Butter Lovers

    Maria Brennan from Abbotsford, BC

    I used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips for an amazing peanut butter cookie. I brought them to work and they were gone before lunch. Still soft and chewy after a couple of days.

    Crystal Brower from ,

    I added 1/2 a cup of peanut butter chips, my kids loved them...notice I said loved them, Im already on my 2nd batch!

    more peanut butter

    Billie Linder from Everett, WA

    I agree you couldn't really taste the peanut butter very well, so I upped it to 3/4 cups peanut butter and they are yummy!

  •  Star(s)

    great with a few changes

    Amy Sauder from ,

    I'm a peanut butter lover so I doubled the recipe and used 1 cup of butter and 2 cups of peanut butter for great results...just grab a cup of milk when you're ready to eat them!

  •  Star(s)

    okay...

    Kristen Riedstra from ,

    can't really taste the peanut butter, but my kids loved them anyways - i myself prefer a little more flavour.

    Mom's Favorite

    Antonieta Medrano from ,

    My mom who is not a big cookie person absolutely loved these cookies. She didn't want to share with anyone but I promised her that I would make some more once I get some more chocolate chips.

  •  Star(s)

    My family loved them!

    Jennifer Campbell from ,

    After reading the reviews I made a few adjustments, I added vanilla pudding, I used a mixture of semi sweet chips, milk choc chips and reese chips, they were great!

    GREAT RECIPE

    ROBERT HARKNESS from temecula, CA

    WE MADE THESE - I FOUND THE RECIPE VERY EASY AND EVERYONE LOVED THEM. I COULD NOT MAKE ENOUGH.

  •  Star(s)

    Okay, nothing spectacular

    Clare Prezzia from ,

    You can hardly even taste the peanut butter in these cookies, so I recommend looking for another recipe with more peanut butter. Other than that, they're all right - just not as good as they are hyped up to be. :)

  •  Star(s)

    Yummie!

    Zoila Carroll from Flushing, NY

    I baked these cookies last night and oh boy were they a hit. My kids loved them. Instead of vanilla extract I decided to add maple flavoring along with a box of vanilla pudding. They came out soft and while baking, the cookies oozed with a sweet endicing smell that permeated everyone's nose. My kids could not keep their hands off the cookies. This is one recipe I defintely want to hand down to the next generation.

  •  Star(s)

    One of the better recipes

    Marci McBride from Danbury, IA

    I think this recipe is one of the best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes I have ever made. Everyone in my family loves them and the whole batch will be gone in the same day. I feel they have an excellent flavor unlike the other review stated.

  •  Star(s)

    Very bland

    Kari Johnson from Los Angeles, CA

    I have to agree with another reviewer. These cookies have very little flavor (surprisingly) and even the addition of some chopped dry-roasted peanuts the second time did little to improve them. There are any number of other good peanut butter-chocolate chip cookie recipes out there; I won't be trying this one again. When not a single one of my colleagues stops by my desk to thank me for bringing homemade cookies to work, I know I've made a loser!

    peanut butter in chocolate chip cookies

    Jean Hasenflue from Kingston, NY

    I have at times put peanut butter in my TollHouse cookies because when I use all butter the cookies are flat, but they are not with peanut butter. If I do not use peanut butter, I use half butter and half shortening and they are nice and chewy which is my favorite cookie.

  •  Star(s)

    mmmm

    Noelle Rauber from PATCHOGUE, NY

    i did the same by adding extra peanut butter and the peanut butter chips. Everyone loved them i didn't even get a whole cookie to myself.

    GREAT COOKIES!

    Jason Perez from Hagerstown, MD

    I have been using a variation of this recipe for years. I have found that using shortening instead of butter or vegetable oil works better.

  •  Star(s)

    Pretty good, a little dry

    Luree Nor from salida, AK

    They tasted pretty good, not amazing, the chocolate chips are what made them as good as they were ... they were a bit dry and crumbled easily ... and they don't have that much of a peanut butter taste ... they were pretty good but could have been better

  •  Star(s)

    addictive cookie

    kim mackrith from winkler, MB

    i'm not a big fan of peanut butter, but i decided to look for a recipe. i found a lot, but none of them interested me. but then i came upon this one. and i thought,"lets try it". i made it and the cookies turned out better than i thought. i love the teture of this particular cookie. if there's major peanut butter lovers out there.....then this is %100 for you

    Yummy cookies

    Lorinda Miller-Jackson from Saint Germain, WI

    I made these cookies and they are YUMMY!! I substituted 2 cups of candy for the chips for a fun change. This recipe is definitely going in my recipe box. They were so quick and easy as well.

    No Peanut Butter Taste

    Cathy Boarts from LEHIGH ACRES, FL

    I tried this recipe today because I was looking for a peanut butter cookie recipe with something different. I thought this recipe sounded good, but was disappointed with the results. I used all butter, as the recipe called for 1 c. butter or margarine. I wondered if this would make the cookies greasier, and it did. The first batch was very greasy and flat. I then adjusted the dough by adding flour, up to one cup to get the right consistency. This did improve the dough. The cookies did not taste like peanut butter. I had two other tasters who agreed that there was barely a hint of peanut butter there, and had I not told them, they would not have guessed there was any in the recipe. All in all, I would not recommend this recipe and I doubt I will try it again. It's too bad because the idea of peanut butter and chocolate sounded good, but just didn't work out with this recipe.

    Yummy!

    Barb McCammon from OSBORNE, KS

    What a great variation of the traditional Toll House cookies. The hint of peanut butter is wonderful. I used crunchy, so the little chunks of peanuts really spruced up the cookies! I brought the whole batch to work yesterday morning, and this morning the plate only had a half dozen left!! I think that says it all! :)

    NOT Peanut Butter!!

    Ginger Marszalek from SOUTHWICK, MA

    My husband and my grandson did not want peanut butter in their chocolate chip cookies! I made them anyway without telling them and they both LOVED them. In fact there's hardly any left! The whole family came over for mother's day today, and everyone loved them! I didn't have to make a "fancy" dessert for after dinner. These cookies did the job just fine! they're moist and very tasty! very yummy in fact! These will be a staple in my house!

    Sandra Clements from JACKSON, MO

    I COULDN'T WAIT TO TRY THIS RECIPE AS I LOVE CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER TOGETHER. I USED THE CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER, BUT WILL TRY THE CRUNCHY THE NEXT TIME. I ALSO USED THE SEMI-SWEET MORSELS AND IT WAS GREAT. JUST PERFECT FOR THE KIDS FOR AN AFTERNOON SNACK WITH A GLASS OF MILK.

    Perfect!

    Jennifer Daniels from COLUMBUS, OH

    Very light texture, nice and crispy but moist. A hint of peanut butter. I was a little short on the peanut butter, but they still came out great and I used mini semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of milk since that's what I had on hand. Quick and easy to make.

    The Very Best

    Yolanda Ballard from VICTORVILLE, CA

    Everyone at work simply loved them. Even my husband who is not a cookie lover. Everyone said these were the best they ever had. The secret is to beat butter and other ingredients well in your Kitchen Aid mixer if you have one and gradually add flour. Very MOIST cookies.

    won't make these again

    Barbara Elliott from OSAWATOMIE, KS

    I made the bar cookie version, usually they are moister..very disappointing. Dry, lacking in peanut butter flavor. No redeeming qualities, it's a shame that I wasted the ingredients.
