Who doesn't love a good cookie! These moreish, chewy, peanut butter chip cookies, are really easy to make, and super quick too.

It's a nice recipe for the kids to get involved with, as there is lots of mixing. In fact, my 5 year old can pretty much make these by herself, as they are that easy.

WHERE CAN I GET PEANUT BUTTER CHIPS?


Back when I started blogging in 2008, peanut butter chips were like gold dust here in the UK. I could not find them anywhere! In fact, I resorted to paying my American friend to ship a whole load out to me (after seeing lots of yummy recipes using them from US food bloggers).

These days, peanut butter chips are now widely available in large supermarkets, but if you're struggling to get hold of them, you can bulk buy peanut butter chips* online too.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THESE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES


  • I've used some white chocolate chips along with the peanut butter chips. If you prefer you can use all peanut butter chips. Or, use milk chocolate chips instead of white chocolate chips.
  • The cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days. I doubt they will last that long though.
  • They make a fantastic mid morning snack for kids, with a glass of milk.
  • The recipe can easily be doubled if you're feeding a crowd.

CAN YOU FREEZE THESE COOKIES?


Yes you can! The baked cookies freeze really well. Just make sure they are in a sealed container to prevent freezer burn.

BEST WAY TO FREEZE THE UNCOOKED COOKIE DOUGH


The uncooked cookie dough can also be frozen. The best way to do this, is to put walnut size balls of cookie dough onto lined trays, then open freeze. 

When completely frozen, pop the frozen dough balls into freezer bags, and stash in your deep freeze until needed.

When you are ready to bake, just put the dough balls, well spaced, onto lined baking trays, and pop straight into the preheated oven. You will need to extend the cooking time by 3 minutes.
