Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


These are REALLY good. The reason I know these are good is because that is EXACTLY the words I over heard my husband say when he ate one. Being the CALM (insert sarcasm here please) person I am, I remained calmish and did NOT spaz (I have learned that this does always amuse my always calm better half) and run over and stammer “what?!?!? really?!?!? YEAH!!! say it again?!?!?”….. instead  I just smiled and said “thanks.” He seems to like most things I make, being the very unpicky  man he is. But when I can tell he genuinely LOVES something I get giddy, cannot help it, I love to make food that people LOVE!  This is by far my FRAVORITE peanut butter choco chip cookie. Give it a whirl, it may be yours too!

* I added M & M’s, just a nice handful…..or two.

* I prefer butter flavored shortening, but that my just be me.

* I cannot lie. I love chocolate and peanut butter and I want to taste the peanut butter so add about 1/2 c. of it! Seems not to mess up the cookie at all!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. vegetable shortening
1/4 c. peanut butter
1 egg
1 TB. milk
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/2 – 4 c. flour
1/2 pkg. chocolate chips
1/2 pkg. peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350*. In a large mixer bowl combine sugar, shortening, oil, and peanut butter. Add eggs and milk and beat well. Add baking soda, vanilla, cream of tartar and salt and mix. Gradually add flour, 1 c. at a time, until mixture is thick. Stir in chips. Bake @ 350* untill cookies are slightly brown around the edges. (a few more of my lovely notes.  * I baked for 11 min. It made a nice chewy cookie, that which I love.    * At my bestest guess these will get you about 52 or so cookies.) Enjoy!!!

About Bobbi

I am a wife to my wonderful husband. I am a mom to 5 wonderful/busy/crazy/noisey/happy snappy boys. My hobby is cooking and baking, I love to read recipes and organize the recipes I have. I enjoy making food for people and sharing recipes. My husband is not picky and will eat almost anything, my kids are not quite as easy, they can be picky eaters, which has lead me to try to make more “favorite family foods”. I am hoping that through this blog some of my friends and family, or anyone for that matter, will share their favorite recipes too!!! Feel free to email me at if you have any questions, suggestions or recipes you would like to share. I look forward to hearing from you! Bobbi
