Ok so my family is a huge peanut butter fan! We like peanut butter on almost everything; pancakes, waffles, cookies, and frosting for cake! If you are allergic to peanut butter this may not be the post for you and please out of safety do not consume if you are allergic!
Today I’m going to share with you one of my favorite cheater recipes for cookies. All you need a few things and before you know it you will have Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have used this “recipe” in a pinch if I need a quick yummy snack to make for parties, groups, or a treat! When I say cheater recipe it means that it is not entirely homemade.
What you will need
Super easy and not a whole lot of mess! One package usually is 13 servings and can feed 10 or more people. If you’re making them for a large party maybe make two packages or more. I like making these for my small group and house parties I have gone to in the past.
You can make this with whatever homemade recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough you may have just add the peanut butter step. I like cheater cookie dough because it is a fast alternative when I am in a pinch to make something yummy! I will say that I don’t always use non stick cooking spray I often use a very thin layer of flour if I do not have non stick spray. It is a very handy alternative if you don’t use spray or have ran out
You can also coat the bottom of the cookie sheet with butter if you don’t have either. The problem with butter is that it absorbs into the cookie and evaporates almost when baking. So practically it is your digression on what kind of cookie dough you use and what non stick method.
Below I have taken some pictures to show you what the steps look like, my cookies are small so I didn’t need that much peanut butter. If you are making larger cookies you can add more peanut butter if you would like. I have noticed though that to much peanut butter and it will seep through and you wont be able to fold the cookie dough around the peanut butter.
There you have it guys, this is how I make my peanut butter stuffed cookies. I like to use chocolate dough too, it tastes just like a Reese’s peanut butter cup if you use chocolate cookie dough!
What is one thing you like to bake?
