Peanut Butter & White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made some pretty yummy cookies for a picnic we went to yesterday.

These peanut butter and white chocolate chip cookies pretty much MELLLLLT in your mouth!

I was looking for something new and different and came across a similar recipe on one of my favorite baking blogs, Cookies and CupsShelly made me chuckle with her description of her “big-boned” version!

I didn’t want mine to be quite as “big-boned,” so I used another favorite blogger’s recipe (Sally’s Baking Addiction) for soft peanut-butter cookies.

Combining Shelly’s idea with a tweak or two to Sally’s recipe, I came up with a winning version (at least according to my guys – – –  and there were none left at the picnic either!).

Here’s the recipe:

Peanut Butter & White Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 cups (4 sticks) salted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large egg
  • 3 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 5 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 bags white chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars together in mixer until light and fluffy.  Mix in peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients. Do not overmix. Chill dough for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Remove chilled dough from fridge and roll into balls.  Then flatten slightly as these cookies will not spread very much.

Bake for 9 minutes until the tops begin to start cracking slightly.  Do not over bake.   Cookies may not look done, but they will firm up as they cool.

I got about 7 dozen from this recipe.

(And I was sure to set a few aside for a certain sweet someone whose favorite candy bar is White Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups that I think is going to LOVE these!)  🙂

Mikey is always such a big helper in the kitchen too!  He always cleans the floor for me.  All I need do is brush crumbs from the counter to the floor, and they magically disappear.

And since we polished off this jar of Jif, Mikey took care of cleaning it out for me before we put it in the recycle bin.

Enjoy!

Cheers & Hugs,
