chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

These delicious, easy to make cookies went over so well with friends + family that there was zero time to grab a just-out-of-the-oven shot! This makes about 3 dozen cookies but if you’re a huge fan of fresh baked goodness, make up the cookie balls ahead of time and freeze. When you’re craving a cookie, set out a few cookie balls on a baking sheet to thaw, preheat your oven + bake!

Another reason I love this recipe? It’s all about the ½ (for the most part) + it uses only one bowl! || Read more

…unless you have no oven. This year, I thought I would share a friend’s recipe for no bake peanut butter balls that she made for a Christmas dinner she hosted over the weekend.

Definitely looking forward to making these just as soon as I get a real kitchen back in my life.  **I do not have the fridge/freezer/counter space to make these but I wanted to share anyway!** || Read more

This recipe is not mine but I’m really excited to share it with those of you who choose to or demand a gluten free lifestyle. Peanut butter cookies are a favorite and this recipe from Miss Kait is just what the world needed!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 egg
    that’s it…really


Mix all ingredients together – her recipe says to roll into balls but it looked like such a mess. I just spooned the dough onto my cookie sheet and flattened with a criss-cross pattern with a fork and sprinkled some sugar on top before baking.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

original recipe found here (check out the rest of her blog too – she has some really amazing stuff to share!)

I’ve been holding off on posting this recipe. It’s something from my childhood that always reminds me of my mother and Christmas in Nebraska.

Growing up, mom would go all out. Cut-out sugar cookies, her famous rum balls (if you want this recipe, you’ll have to ask her – I’ve never been a fan – a subject for another time), and the crème de la crème – the peanut butter cup cookie. Trust me. It won’t get any better than that – unless you a) hate peanut butter or b) heaven forbid, you’re allergic!

I guess at some point I’ve come to realize this blog was just as much, if not more, for me than my six or seven readers. So, here’s another recipe to add to the archive. I hope you love it as much as my family does.

What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup softened margarine
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg

Beat the above ingredients until smooth.

  • 1¼ cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Peanut butter cups (if you can find them, the dark chocolate ones ar—–

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until well combined.

Roll into balls and place in mini muffin tin and bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-9 minutes until the tops are lightly brown. Remove from the oven and press your peanut butter cup into the middle of the dough.

**Place the muffin pans in the freezer for a few minutes so the chocolate won’t melt**
