1990s blog: World’s Best Peanut Butter Cookies

The title says it all. A good basic peanut butter cookie with chocolate chips and peanuts. Wish I could eat them all day! When making these to give away, I would probably buy creamy peanut butter, but for home use, I always just use chunky peanut butter. And Skippy or a similar brand, not a “health food store” or fresh ground peanut butter.

World’s Best Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped, roasted peanuts

Cream margarine and peanut butter, the add the sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until creamy. Add the baking soda to the flour and stir to mix, then add this dry mixture to the creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and peanuts.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets and flatten slightly with the back of a fork (this both flattens and decorates the cookies).

Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes. Makes 6-7 dozen.
