Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies: These soft peanut butter cookies are extra wonderful with three kinds of chocolate, plus a sprinkle of sea salt!

Cookies deliver comfort and happiness to anyone you share your baking with, there’s just no denying that.

And if we stopped and thought for just a minute, I bet that every single one of us could jot down a number of names – people we personally know who would appreciate a little home baked love, for comfort or for celebration.

We could then take that list further, to include all those affected by our world’s tragedies. Hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, and senseless acts of violence. It’s felt a little overwhelming to have the news on the past couple months. I feel it. Our kids feel it. There have been times where I’ve had to turn off the news, simply to keep young eyes and ears from bearing that pressure.

So when my friend Bridget from Bake at 350 asked if I’d like to bake cookies to share with Imperial Sugar’s #GiveAFriendACookie movement, I didn’t hesitate. I knew I needed to do this, to bake and share a little love and joy.

These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies will bring smiles to every fan of that awesome peanut butter and chocolate combination. I do hope you’ll join me in baking and sharing the goodness!

* Thank you to Imperial® Sugar for providing me with sugar and for sponsoring the #GiveAFriendACookie movement.

Imperial Sugar was founded in 1843 in Sugar Land, Texas. Known for its consistent baking performance and highest quality, this pure cane sugar is legendary throughout Texas and the southeastern U.S.

Since the recent Texas hurricane, Imperial Sugar and Bridget have been talking about what they could do to bring communities closer and to care for each other. And all conversations led right back to baking >>> one way that all of us can provide comfort and support is through baking.

Cookie dough = JOY

Cookie dough is joy. Pure joy. It makes our whole house smile.

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

I love soft peanut butter cookies with a lightly crispy exterior. And these cookies are just that.

And you already know very well that I’m a huge fan of chocolate.

In this recipe, I incorporated not one, not two, but three different kinds of chocolate.

There’s dark chocolate chunks, my favorite semi-sweet chocolate chips, and our kids’ favorite milk chocolate chips. This gives a variety of chocolate flavors and textures to the cookies, a different chocolate experience with each and every bite.

Sweets love salt

And the final kicker is the sea salt sprinkle. It’s no secret. A touch of salt kicks most sweets up a notch.

I like to use this sea salt, famous for its awesome large flakes.

I simply crush the flakes a bit between my fingers while sprinkling it over the scoops of raw dough.

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping the bowl 2 to 3 times. Add peanut butter and incorporate. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture and mix until fully incorporated. Fold in all three chocolates.
  • Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough onto baking sheet, about 2” apart. I like to use a medium scoop (mine is 1-5/8″ in diameter), loaded just a bit generously. Sprinkle dough with sea salt. Bake for 11 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Take care to not over bake, as the cookies will set as they cool. Let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

    I’m digging that sea salt on top. I pretty much won’t eat a cookie without a sprinkle of salt. I know, it’s weird. :-)
