More About This Recipe
  • Make room in your recipe box for this twist on a classic peanut butter cookie! It’s quick to make and has twice the peanut buttery goodness, thanks to the addition of peanut butter chips. In 40 minutes, you can have a rave-worthy cookie perfect for a bake sale, potluck or a special after-school snack. This recipe skips the step of imprinting a criss-cross pattern with the back of a fork, so all you have to do is shape cookies into balls and roll in sugar before baking. In fact, these cookies can go even faster, if you use a spring-handled cookie scoop to help you shape the dough. Though it may seem like a luxury item, the cookie scoop is actually the busy baker’s best friend, as it’s a quick way to ensure all cookies are the same size so they bake evenly. An ice cream scoop can also work. Betty’s got more tips about baking perfect peanut butter cookies, plus plenty more kitchen-tested peanut butter cookie recipes.
