Crunchy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021

I don’t make very many crunchy cookies. I usually make them with a softer chewier texture. But I loved Crunchy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. These lovely Peanut Butter Cookies include chocolate chips for a burst of flavor. Or I could just as easily say, these Chocolate Chip Cookies have a dab of crunchy peanut butter in them to amp up the flavors! 🙂 Either way works.

When I started out my Christmas Cookie Extravaganza cookie list this year, I made mostly tried and true recipes. But I wanted to make a couple of new ones, so I tossed in some Lemon Curd Almond Bars, Iced Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies and Molasses Date Cookies. I also added this cookie along with several small batches of cookies made with Paradise candied fruit.

We weren’t planning on doing any more Christmas Cookie Extravaganzas. But my husband begged me to make up cookies for our neighborhood so we could get to know our neighbors a little better. That has been the best part of this process. We also made up trays to take out to his former place of employment as well as doctor’s offices, church offices and other friends. I baked almost every day in October and the first week of November. It was exhausting but finally the Christmas baking is over for 2021.

Now we get to sit back and enjoy the holiday season. We’ve never baked cookies quite so early before, but it was really nice being able to have a de-stressed Thanksgiving and Christmas season because all the holiday baking was done early.

If you enjoy peanut butter and chocolate, you’ll love these cookies. If you have sweet tooth cravings, these are just about perfect. 🙂

With a large cookie scoop, place cookie dough on ungreased cookie sheets about three to four inches apart. These cookies expand a lot while baking. (If you want the cookies to spread less, freeze on cookie sheets about 10-15 minutes before baking).

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until done. I took the cookies out while they were still raising. They flatten out as they cool.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: My cookies took about 16 minutes to bake.

NOTE: These cookies spread a lot. Be sure not to crowd the cookies.

NOTE: Be sure NOT to grease the cookie sheets before baking as these cookies spread a lot and do not need extra grease to cause them to spread more.

NOTE: I took the cookies out at 16 minutes while they were still rising but well browned. Then the cookies sank as they cooled.

NOTE: For a slightly rounder and softer cookie add ÂĽ cup more flour.

NOTE: If you don’t want the cookies to spread quite so much, freeze the cookie dough balls on cookie sheet about 10 to 15 minutes before baking.
