  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter creamy or crunchy
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (measure correctly)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Using a mixer, mix the butter, sugars, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla together until combined.
  • Add in the flour, soda, and salt in and mix until just combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the dough onto ungreased cookie sheets. (6 per sheet, these will be large, thick cookies!)
  • Use your hand and slightly flatten each scoop of dough.
  • Cook for 12-14 minutes at 350.
  • Remove cookies from oven and cool on baking sheet 2 minutes before placing on cooling rack.
  • Makes 18 cookies.


If you want to reserve about a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, you can lightly press 4-6 chips into the tops of the cookies so you can visually see more chocolate chips. :) I love doing that!
Make sure you don't over-measure your flour.  You should spoon your flour into your measuring cup and then level it off.
