Bakery-Size Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have I got a delicious recipe for you today!
It’s one that I get asked for all the time, but I only give out sparingly. So now you guys know how I feel truly feel about you. (You know I love you, right?)
Don’t let me down…these cookies must be enjoyed, mmkay?!

What really makes these cookies extra special is the ginormous size of the cookie!
Bigger really is better when it comes to cookies!!

The secret to getting such large cookies is in the formation. A neighbor taught me this trick several years ago and I will forever be indebted.

Once your dough is mixed up, fill 1/3 measuring cup with the dough.

Remove the dough from the measuring cup and place on a greased cookie sheet. You can fit 6 per cookie sheet.

The second tip is baking the cookies at a lower temperature – 325 degrees. (In case you were wondering about the double numbers…I have a double oven).

The cookies will be done when you start to see the edges turning slightly golden. Remove from the oven, then let them sit on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes. This cooks the bottom of the cookie just a little bit more so you get kind of a crunchy bottom, but chewy center.

Remove from cookie sheet and place on a cooling rack.

The mini chocolate chips are perfect to add that hint of chocolate.
And c’mon…we all know that peanut butter + chocolate = DELICIOUS!!!

  6. Oh my! 1/3 cup PER cookie? Wow, those are huge! Have you ever made them smaller? Pretty sure if I made them that big, that would be more than half my calories for the day. Or maybe I'll have to go run a 5K just to be able to eat one that day. :) But they definitely look SO delicious.

  8. My daughters and I are making them right now. The dough tastes good! We used a quarter cup to measure them out.

  9. Okay I made these today. YUM. Thanks! Now can you tell me how to make my chocolate chip cookies this good and big??
    For anyone interested in trying them, we did not get that many cookies because we ate a lot of dough. :) I refrigerated the dough before baking and then mine didn't fall as much as I'd wanted. But after I let them sit on the pan and banged it a few times, they were just right. The second pan of them I made I kind of smashed down but they really didn't need it. These are going to make a great gift for my primary girls!
