Soft Peanut Butter White Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter White Chip Cookies...super SOFT peanut butter cookies LOADED with white chocolate!

These super Soft Peanut Butter White Chip Cookies are crazy thick…the inside will melt in your mouth and the white chocolate adds a perfect addition of sweet and creamy!

Oh hey giant peanut butter cookies. What up.

When I decided I needed to make super thick peanut butter cookies I really didn’t think they would tun out THIS thick.

But I went big.

And fat.

Or thick.

Is thick better than fat? Or do we not say fat anymore?

Obese? I made obese cookies.

No, I don’t think that’s right.

So while *I* wouldn’t want to really be called thick, fat or obese…I can’t think of another way to describe these cookies.

They are large? Big boned?

Ugh. Anyway, I stuffed them jam packed full of white chocolate chips to make them even more epic. Because that’s how I do.

SOFT and THICK WHite chocolate peanut butter cookies!

I love me a peanut butter cookie, but I do NOT like a crumbly cookie. So that was my mission. A non-crumbly thick-fat-obese-large-big boned peanut butter cookie.

With white chips.

White Chocolate Chips

The batter is super easy…and also tastes delicious unbaked.

Salmonella be damned!

Peanut Butter White Chip Cookie DOugh!

To get your cookies looking like mine, use a large cookie scoop. Mine is a 3 Tbsp scoop by OXO.


ORRR if you want less thick cookies, press them down before baking…


And bake them for 9-ish minutes. They will set up on the bottoms, but the insides will stay soft and delicious. Trust me.

SOFT and THICK WHite chocolate peanut butter cookies!

We really loved these!

Love these!!! Thick, soft, big-boned :) full of white chocolate and PEANUT BUTTER! Yes, these are my perfect cookie. And I’ve got you beat, my cookie scoop is a 4 tbsp number. Errr, 1/4 cup of dough. Oh well there are worse things, right :)


Obese cookies are the best cookies… especially when they involve white chocolate and peanut butter!

Holy cow, they make a 4Tblsp cookie scoop??? I need THAT in my life.

I prefer big boned cookies. They’re the best, especially when they’re PB!

Having recently discover just how much I like peanut butter combined with white chocolate over other types of chocolate, these are dangerous!

Zaftig? Zaftig cookies. Yes. At any rate, I love this combination of white chocolate and peanut butter! Totally underrepresented, IMHO.

When I first saw these cookies, I thought they were scoops of ice cream… Cracking up here at your choice of names to describe the cookie! They look delicious and I absolutely love peanut butter and white chocolate together:)

Curvy! Delish however you characterize them! Can’t wait to try this recipe.

I like that they hold their shape after baking.

White chocolate chips sound delicious with peanut butter! I’m not sure why I haven’t thought of it before! And I also like my cookies big! The bigger, the better :)

OMG!! I was looking for a cookie recipe with white chocolate chips since I can no longer have regular chocolate(I know, horrors, right?) and these are the bomb, especially since I love PB too! They are perfect!!!

So far, this is one of the very, very few recipes on your site that I didn’t like. I followed the recipe and made them giant cookies (like three cookies in one), but I think I would have liked them as smaller cookies. I thought they were too sweet and would have liked something to cut the sweetness a bit. I found that eating just one of these was almost too much for me, and I am the self-proclaimed queen of overindulgence. With that said, this is just how I felt about them, and perhaps to someone else, this would… Read more »
