World’s Greatest Peanut Butter Cookies

World's Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip CookiesThis recipe has some history!

I originally got it from my oldest sister Becky, who got it from a friend. I made them often for my adorable nephews when I lived with them my last semester of college.

I took the recipe with me when I moved into my first apartment and would take them to school to treat my students.

They were my “never-fail- go-to cookies”.

So – of course – it was these cookies that I made for a certain good-looking blond guy in the singles group that I wanted to impress.

And of course – they failed. Miserably. (To this day I wonder what – in my twitter-pated state – I left out when I made them!)

Would you believe that he ate them anyway and declared them them to be the best cookies ever.

Of course I married him – and the cookies have never failed since! 🙂

World’s Greatest Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
12 ounces chocolate chips

Cream together the margarine, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar.

Add the flour and baking soda.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonful on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 325 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.

Note that these cookies don’t have eggs! That means you can eat as much dough as you would like with no worries – I know we do!

Some day I might just mix up the dough and not bake it – just leave it in the fridge and eat it!

  1. Gotta add this recipe to my box. Sounds yummy. I miss the days when we could take homemade goodies to school for parties and treats. We can only take prepackaged treats now.


  2. Mmm… yummy! (Confession… my best friend and I used to make cookie dough- the kind with eggs in it- and stick it in a bag in the fridge and chow down. So tasty, but not recommended… ;))
