Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
There is nothing like a batch of homemade cookies. The cookie dough, the warm cookies right out of the oven. Just doesn’t get much better! Sharing one of my favorite cookie recipes with you today that you are going to LOVE. I added some Reese’s Peanut Butter Puff’s to the dough and these are delicious!
To make the best chocolate chip cookies, you want to start with the best ingredients. Make sure your eggs are fresh, you have pure vanilla extract and real butter. These are some of my must do’s when making my cookie recipes. Invest in a nice cookie sheet from your favorite kitchen store. I really enjoy the ones from Williams Sonoma or Sur La Table. It’s also helpful to have a great cookie scoop. I look for a medium sized one that gives me uniform cookies when placing onto my baking sheet.
These really are some of the best chocolate chip cookies. Love the texture with the cereal and buttery crisp edges. A family favorite for sure. I had all of my ingredients and I was ready to start my cookies!!
This dough is amazing!!!
I mean come on!!!
With this recipe, I’ve included one of my favorite simple buttercream recipes that you can use to make a chocolate chip cookie sandwich. You spread a couple tablespoons onto a cookie, top with another cookie then press some Reese’s Peanut Butter Puff’s Cereal onto the buttercream. These are decadent and perfect for entertaining your family and friends.
Be sure to store any leftovers in an airtight container, chilled in the refrigerator or at room temperature on the kitchen counter.
