dustin's peanut butter chip cookies...

i have been looking for a great peanut butter cookie recipe for a while & i got it from the most unexpected source! one of my brothers bff's, or should i say- my little girls "boyfriend":) dustin has been my brothers friend for as long as i can remember & he has been avi's boyfriend, in her eyes since she has been about 2. everyone loves dustin, & now you will love him too for sharing this recipe.

{dustin's peanut butter chip cookies}

Oven Temperature: 375 degrees

Makes about 50 Cookies

Cooks in 7-10 Minutes


The cookies taste the best when they are made all in the same day. The batter is still really good after 24 hours, but it is best if mixed and cooked within the first 24 hours.

If you hate hard/stiff cookies, try placing an additional empty cookie sheet at the bottom of the oven to protect the cookies from direct heat of the elements. Next, place the cookie sheet with cookies, closer to the top of the oven than the bottom.

Take the cookies out just before they appear to be done, as they will continue to cook after they are taken out of the oven. (If the cookies are undercooked, you can place them back in the oven a little bit longer. It's better to undercook the cookies than to overcook them. The reason for this is that you can always cook the cookies longer if needed.)

Try only a few cookies at first to see how they will react to your oven.


2 Cups Margarine (Must be room Temperature)

2 Cups Peanut Butter

2 Cups Sugar

2 Cups Brown Sugar

4 eggs

5 Cups of Flour

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1 teaspoon Salt

3 teaspoons Baking Soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

A bag of Reese's Peanut Butter chips.


Preheat the oven to 375.

Mix ingredients 1-4 together.

Once the ingredients are mixed together, slowly beat the eggs into the mixture.

After the eggs have been added, slowly add the rest of the ingredients to the mixture.

When the mixture has been mixed, add enough Reese's Peanut Butter chips to the batch so that you have about 3-4 chips in each cookie. (Feel free to add more.)

Please shape the cookies to about the size of a small shaped ice cream scooper. (Depending on the oven, you may need to increase or decrease the size of the cookies.)

Place the cookies on a cookie sheet, and place them in the oven for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes flatten the cookie with a fork or spoon. Once you have finished flattening the cookies, allow the cookies to cook for another 3-5 minutes until lightly brown around the edges.

When the cookies have finished cooking, take them off of the hot cookie sheet, and allow them to rest for 5-10 minutes (really to your preference).
