  • Use crunchy peanut butter for these cookies. They give a good crunch and an additional texture.
  • Make sure the peanut butter is very smooth. Don’t use it straight from the fridge. It would be very hard. Let it soften first.
  • Use roughly cut dark chocolate chunks whenever possible. You will not regret it. You get a gooey chocolate surprise with almost every bite. And remember bigger the chunks the better!
  • The cookie dough will be hard to mix after adding the chocolate chunks but that’s ok. To combine the chocolate into the dough you can always use your hands. Mixing with your fingers makes it easier for the chocolate to blend into the dough.
  • These cookies do not spread. So you need not give a lot of space between each cookie when arranging them on the baking tray.
  • After the cookies are arranged on the baking tray you can immediately bake them. No need to chill them.
  • These cookies are easy to double. Just don’t forget to double the ingredients proportionately.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven when they are just done. This keeps the chocolate still gooey inside.

How to tell when these homemade peanut butter cookies are done?

How to store these simple peanut butter cookies?

If any cookies left, just store them in an airtight container for up to 5 days at room temperature.

Can you freeze peanut butter cookie dough?

Once the dough is ready to be shaped, the peanut butter cookie dough can be double wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen for up to 2 months. When needed, just remove the plastic wrap and let the cookie dough thaw until pliable. Then shape the dough into cookies.  It is easier to shape the cookies when the cookie dough is softened.

You can also shape the cookies, arrange them on a tray and freeze them. Once frozen you should plastic wrap them individually, then store them together in a zip lock bag until needed. When you feel like having a cookie, take a cookie out of the freezer and remove the plastic wrap. Wait for a few minutes to soften the cookie dough. Then bake and enjoy!
