What ingredients do you need to make the recipe?

I give you below the list of ingredients (the detailed quantities can be found in my recipe at the bottom of the page):

  • Light brown sugar : in cookies in general, I really like to use brown sugar, here too! Its caramel flavor is perfect for this recipe.
  • Butter : Soft, softened butter is used here. It adds fluffiness to the dough and allows the cookies to spread out on the baking sheet.
  • Peanut butter : for this recipe, I take peanut butter with pieces. It is easily found in supermarkets, spreads. The peanut pieces add a little crunch to the cookies.
  • Egg : we want a large egg for this recipe.
  • vanilla : I use liquid vanilla extract, it helps to enhance the other flavors.
  • Flour / Yeast : there is little flour in this recipe, just enough so that the cookies hold together well and are not dry, but rather soft.
  • Dark chocolate : I use dark pastry chocolate in tablets to be able to crush it coarsely. I recommend a rather full-bodied chocolate (about 60-65% cocoa).

My tips for successful peanut butter cookies

  • Measure the flour well : if there are too many, your cookies will be drier, that's a shame. I advise you to measure well using a scale.
  • Do not overmix the batter : once the flour and yeast have been added, the dough must be mixed as strictly as necessary. If you mix too much, the cookies will go flat. You can make this recipe at pastry robot or manually.
  • Do not cook more than necessary : even if the cookies still seem soft to you, it's normal, they harden as they cool on the baking tray out of the oven. It is therefore not necessary to extend the cooking time.

How to keep them?

These peanut butter and chocolate cookies keep very well at room temperature about 4-5 days if you put them in an airtight box. They will keep their softness. If not, you can prolong their lifespan in the fridge (up to 1 week), but they will get harder.

Can you freeze cookie dough?

Unbaked cookie dough freezes very well ! That's good news, right? Once the balls of dough have formed, they are first placed on a plate and put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Then, place them in a freezer bag and in the freezer.

With this technique, the cookie dough keeps up to 3 months. To cook them, there is no need to thaw them but the balls of dough are placed directly on a baking sheet, adding a few minutes of cooking in the oven compared to the basic recipe.

    Hello, do cookies always seem soft when taken out of the oven? Also, should the dough have a very reliable texture as it did for me when forming the little balls? Thank you :)
