Peanut Butter Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Soft peanut butter cookies with peanut butter chips throughout for the ultimate peanut butter treat! This recipe for Peanut Butter Chip Peanut Butter Cookies will go into your constant cookie rotation!

It’s no secret that I LOVE peanut butter. PB&J sandwiches, peanut butter and honey on toast or graham crackers, peanut butter swirled into ice cream, peanut butter mixed into yogurt to make a fruit dip…or a spoonful straight from the jar.

I have made many versions of peanut butter cookies and previously posted a recipe HERE. That is the recipe that I have used for years and it is simple to throw together and oh so peanut buttery! I’ve made versions that are more of a peanut butter shortbread and versions that are soft and chewy.

But I wanted to play around the recipe and get a bit MORE peanut butter in there.

Adding browned butter is a trick that I use often in so many recipes to add depth of flavor. Just browning the butter smells amazing but then you add it to this cookie dough and you get a buttery, nutty flavor that accentuates the peanut butter.

I love the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate so initially, I grabbed a bag of chocolate chips to add to this cookie dough. I mean, you can’t go wrong with that, can you?

But I happened to notice a bag of peanut butter chips that had been hanging out underneath the chocolate chips. So I opted to up the peanut butter flavor with MORE peanut butter!

The addition of a little cornstarch helps to get a little crisp edge surrounding a soft center. Absolute perfection!

Ingredients

  • 250 grams (1 cup) creamy peanut butter

  • 226 grams (1 cup) browned butter, at room temperature

  • 200 grams (1 cup) granulated sugar

  • 200 grams (1 cup) light brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs, room temperature

  • 280 grams (2 1/4 cups) all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups peanut butter chips

  • Additional sugar for sprinkling

Directions

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream together the butter and the peanut butter until well blended, about 1 minute. Add the granulated and brown sugars and mix on medium for 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla extract and mix briefly. Add one egg at a time, mixing after each addition.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  • Add half of the flour to the mixer and mix until incorporated. Add the remaining flour mixture and mix just until incorporated.
  • Add the peanut butter chips and stir in with a spatula.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mat. Using a 2 Tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the dough into rounded balls of dough. Sprinkle with sugar. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  • While the dough chills, preheat the oven to 350℉/175℃. Bake the cookies, one tray at a time, for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then move to a cooling rack. Store air tight for up to 5 days.
