Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies

February 17, 2014Teresa

I really enjoyed this delicious Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies recipe. Each bite was chewy, crunchy, and mouthwatering! I have several recipes for peanut butter cookies, but this one is the only one that actually uses crunchy peanut butter in the batter rather than smooth.

These cookies have a little bit of a crunchy, peanutty texture to them that most peanut butter cookies don’t have. Since I used a large cookie scoop to measure out these cookies they’re also whoppers!

Back when we lived in Largo, Florida, I had a good friend from church who asked me to type up all her recipes. She wanted help getting them organized into a cookbook. She had seen the one I had done for myself back in the early 1980s. That was when personal computers were just becoming affordable for everyone.

I would type and type and type recipes in the afternoons when my oldest was napping. Or I worked on the cookbook in the evenings when he had gone to bed. It was a huge project to get completed. Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies are from that cookbook.

I’ve called them “crunchy” peanut butter cookies to distinguish them from my original Peanut Butter Cookies. Those are also posted on my blog. Mimi’s Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies are really excellent (as are all the recipes she’s shared with me over the years). These cookies are also fairly easy to make without a lot of detailed steps. They turn out perfectly every time.

If you’re looking for a dynamite cookie recipe with peanut butter, then I can highly recommend these jewels. They have incredibly good taste, nice texture and crunch. If you make whoppers like I did, they are very sturdy and hold up well without dissolving into crumbs! Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies are the real deal. I think you’ll agree when you sample one for yourself.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies have one of the best textures for a peanut butter cookie you’ll ever experience!

Here’s a close up so you can see the texture of Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies. 

We baked up a batch of these cookies for a wedding we attended recently. The bride wanted me to provide an assortment of 150 cookies like I usually bake for their Christmas trays at John’s workplace. Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies, Almond Brownies, Raspberry Lemonade Bars, and Almond Joy Cookies were all on the menu! Yum, yum! 🙂

Here’s what I did.

Place softened butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and extra crunchy peanut butter in a large mixing bowl. Mix with an electric mixer to combine.

If you make whopper sized cookies like these you’ll get about 2 dozen out of a batch. Normally, this recipe would make about 3 dozen smaller cookies.

Bake at 375 about 12-15 minutes or until done. If you make a smaller cookie they may take only 8-10 minutes.
