Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

    I made these today and they are delicious. Came out looking exactly like yours did. I love your website and recipes Every new recipe I try turns out great and finds itself in my cooking/baking routine.

    My pregnancy cravings and I thank you for this recipe. Bless you! 🙂

    Can you post some variations without peanut butter? I love this idea, but my daughter doesn’t like PB (more for me!!). Could you make this work with say, oats? I imagine you would have to add some moisture?…

    These are just brilliant! I love baking with my girl in the kitchen — we’ll have to add these to our list!

    Love this idea, Jenny! A delicious treat that doesn’t take a lot of effort! Plus, it’s hard to eat just one peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. This helps with portion control! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!


    This is perfect for all of those times when I don’t feel like making a whole batch of cookies but I just really want a hot one. I’ll just have to figure out how to keep it a secret now!
