Super Soft Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

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!

Tips on How to Make Peanut Butter Cookies

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!

  4. Beat mixture on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping sides as needed.
  5. Mix in flour until combined and finally stir in white chocolate chips.

  1. 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 be the greatest cookie ever. Like I said, I love TONS of your recipes (favorites being the Amish sugar cookies and the vanilla pudding M&M cookies). This one just wasn’t my cup of tea.

  2. 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!!!

  3. I just made these with milk chocolate chips (ghiradelli bc their the best). And they came out fabulous! Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

  4. Shiran @ Pretty. Simple. Sweet.

    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 🙂
