Recently I had to make some cookies for a party. Much to my dismay, I was out of chocolate chips and had one bag of peanut butter chips I didn't know what to do with. This recipe was (fortunately) a successful experiment as I crossed my favorite brownie and chocolate chip cookie recipes. My family likes it better than both. It tastes something like a peanut butter cup in cookie form.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter, shortening, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended, then beat in the vanilla with the second egg. Mix flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt in another bowl; mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just incorporated. Fold in peanut butter chips, mixing just enough to evenly combine.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are set, about 8 minutes.

instead of peanut butter chips, I added 1/2cup chunky peanut butter and 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. i didn't have shortening, so instead used another 1/4 cup of butter. bake at 350 for 11 minutes. perfect.




This was my first time trying cookies with peanut butter chips. And I loved it! I only had 1/2 cup of white sugar so I filled the other half with pure cane granulated sugar. I also added about a cup of semisweet chocolate chips. They turned out wonderful! Thanks for the recipe, will make again for sure.




Very nice recipe. I've tried 2 chocolate cookie recipes previously and while neither was bad neither was worth remaking. This recipe is a keeper. I grabbed butterscotch chips rather than peanut butter chips by mistake and subbed 1/4 cup flour with 1/4 cup oats(to add a little texture), otherwise followed the recipe. It's a bit sweet so I added almost 1/4 cup flour to the remaining 1/3rd of the batch which improved it. The butterscotch chips are far too sweet and attributed much to the over-sweetness. These are wonderfully tender cookies with a wonderful flavor. Good stuff, deserves 4.5 stars or a 9 out of 10 rating by me. Very nice cookie. Almost forgot for added interest I sprinkled just a touch of salt on top of some of the cookies (less than 1/8th tsp for approx 24 2.5" cookies). It was a nice surprise ... salty and sweet chocolate. Hey, they're not health food!
