Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

This peanut butter cookie recipe I have been making since I was a little girl.  Throw in the chocolate chips and it just gets better. 

Funny thing, I noticed the Pampered Chef recipe I have on file is the exact same one and I KNOW this recipe is not just a PC recipe.  I don't even think PC was around when I was a wee one...wait, I take that back...I just googled it and they started in 1980.  OK, so I was barely born after their inception. 

I have no idea where my mom got this recipe, we've just had it.  The reason I know this is because she'd never heard of PC until I was middle school-ish age.  Regardless, this's wonderful.  Never fail PB cookies.  I love 'em.  My mouth is salivating looking at the picture below, in fact. 

Try 'em soon, I know my ex-neighbor is enjoying them alongside his glazed apple cookes.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup peanut butter (I always use crunchy)
3/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package (6 oz.) chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Beat peanut butter, shortening, sugars, egg and vanilla until creamy.  Stir together flour, baking soda and salt.  Add to creamed mixture; blend well.  Fold in chocolate morsels.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheet.  Make criss-cross marks with fork to flatten (coat fork in sugar to keep dough from sticking to fork).  Bake 10-15 minutes.  Cool 2 minutes, then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.  Enjoy!


  1. Oh these looks good. I totally agree that when making PB cookies you always have to use crunchy!!!

  2. I think I just gained 10 pounds! YUM!
