When you are married to someone who has a peanut butter cookie addiction, you end up having a peanut butter cookie baking addiction. I’ve made three batches in two days searching for the perfect cookie! It’s become a little bit of a problem but I have it totally under control. The first two were very yummy and I could have easily stopped there and have been satisfied but something inside of me knew I could make a cookie that was a little bit chewier, peanut butterier, and even more melt in your mouth soft! When I came across a recipe labeledย Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies I was more than tempted and skeptical. However, like all addicts I couldn’t help myself and I bought another jar of peanut butter and went at it. The third time’s the charm because these cookies are theย  best batch out of out of all three! I’m done baking peanut butter cookies…for a little while at least. ๐Ÿ™‚

Super Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

My husband has a slight addiction to peanut butter cookies. And by slight I mean every time we go somewhere that sells peanut butter cookies, he can’t help himself, he’s drawn to the cookies with wide eyes and automatically orders two, then proceeds to eat one right away and saves the other one for a late night snack. This past Christmas, I made the most delicious, soft baked peanut butter cookies that were gone in 5 minutes, however my husband was having a hard remembering how tasty they were since he has cheated on my cookies so many times since then! So, I thought it was about time I made more to remind him homemade cookies are the best! I was determined to make him love them and I think I succeeded…or at least he lied and said I did, which I’ll take ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s hard to go wrong with Sally’s Baking Addiction PB recipe, it’s one of the best.

I made a second batch of Crisco peanut butter cookies to compare which are also very tasty but ultimately, Sally’s won the vote for chewiness and softness! Both recipes are included below.

Soft Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love a good soft, chewy, and warm chocolate chip cookie with every bite dipped into a cold glass of milk! Sounds like a rockin’ Wednesday night, right?? Well, that is just what I did this past week. I made the best soft baked cookies I’ve ever made. They are taken out of the oven slightly under baked which I was a little nervous about doing but they sit on the baking sheet for 10 minutes to continue baking once removed. This process makes them turn out perfect..more than prefect actually! You will love these, I promise ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow, this title is a mouth full but the “Whoopie Pie” is what I was eventually trying to get to. Besides a Little Debbie Oatmeal pie I’ve never had another version. I suppose I never felt the need to since they are so damn good! Even though I’m no Little Debbie, I must say my Whoopie Pies came out pretty darn good ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t think you can go wrong when peanut butter is involved and you pair it with chocolate…ahhh, perfection! I took too different recipes to get the exact flavor I wanted. For the chocolate cookie pie I used a recipe from TreatsSF and for the Peanut Butter filling, I used a recipe from Williams-Sonoma. I think mine came out looking like little chocolate hamburgers but they are still delicious! These are a great dessert to indulge in and I hope you enjoy!
