Affiliate disclosure for Reese's Peanut Butter Chip CookiesIt is no secret that I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. When I was younger, I used to spread graham crackers with peanut butter, then top them with chocolate chips- a quick chocolate peanut butter fix. 🙂 These Reese’s Peanut Butter Chip Cookies definitely a step up! They are addictingly delicious!Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I love peanut butter chips, and could just eat them by the handful. So could my kids, so I have to hide them if I want to make these cookies. LOL! Reeses Peanut Butter Chip Cookie RecipeDon’t be put off by the lemon juice in the cookies. It doesn’t affect the flavor, it just reacts with the baking powder/soda to make the cookies more pretty and puffy. Peanut-Butter-Chip-Cookies

Reese’s Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs

3/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups Reese’s Peanut Butter chips

Cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice. Add flour, soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir till just blended. Stir in chocolate and peanut butter chips. Roll in balls (or scoop) onto lightly greased or silpat lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for about 10 minutes or till golden brown around the edges. Cool for a couple minutes on the pan, then remove to cooling racks. Makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies

  1. Made these for my son’s Christmas office party cookie swap. He is a peanut butter lover, big time. I ran out of butter and had to substitute Crisco (I never use Crisco, but needed some for a recipe and I happened to come across it in my baking cabinet). Any way these cookies are so delicious and came out great. I lightly pressed down on each one with my spatula before putting them in the oven. I was so pleased with the end results. Thanks so much for sharing. I am sure he will beg me to make more, sooner than later.

  2. These are terrific! Thank you for sharing

  3. These cookies look yummy Kara! My hubby would be a fan I’m sure.

  4. I love chocolate and peanut butter … the best! Great idea to use lemon juice. I’ve never seen that in a cookie recipe, and I can’t wait to try it:)

  5. That’s a great idea to use lemon juice. My chocolate chip cookies are always so flat but they taste good 🙂 Thanks for the recipe. Pinned 🙂
