The Last Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe You'll Ever Try

The Last Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe You'll Ever Try created by Dine  Dish

These are the most amazing cookies. They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and freeze so well. You can't even tell they were frozen! The best part - they are drop cookies, no shaping necessary. If you love nuts, use crunchy peanut butter and add the nuts, if not, use creamy PB and 2 cups of peanut butter chips. Cook time is for one batch. Dough keeps well in fridge so you can bake a batch every day and have fresh cookies!

ingredients

directions

  • Cream peanut butter and margarine, add sugars and mix well.
  • Add eggs and mix until creamy.
  • Add remaining ingredients.
  • Chill for one hour-I usually skip this step and chill between batches.
  • Drop by teaspoonful onto cookie sheets- do not flatten.
  • Bake at 325°F for 15 minutes.
  • Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes then transfer onto newspaper- the newspaper soaks up extra grease so the cookies don't become crumbly, little trick I learned from my MIL- this is also optional.
  • Edited to add - Immediately after the cookies are completely cooled I always transfer them to an airtight container. Several posters have mentioned the cookies get hard if you leave them out. I have never had that problem - these cookies have always stayed soft and moist if they are stored in an airtight container.

    Truly outstanding! I used 1 1/4 cup bread flour, 1 1/4 cup cake flour and 1 1/4 cup all purpose, then split the dough in half-kept one plain, and added choco chips to the other, then chilled finished doughs for 2 hours, the plain one, I used a small scoop filled it half way, added 1/4 tsp of Reeses spread in middle, filled in the rest of the scoop to top tightly packed, and put on cookie sheet, baked suggested time, and I cannot believe that I made these unbelievable creations!!

    Not sure where I went wrong. They are really dry. I only baked half the batch. I'll add some moisture and try again tomorrow.

    These turned out absolutely perfect. I added small package of chopped pecans. I chilled the dough as directed and rolled 1 tablespoon balls and kept them chilled until they were ready for the cookie sheet. FYI Following the recipe amounts and using tablespoon size balls this made 71 cookies. Thanks so much for this recipe.
