Servings 5 dozen


  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • In a large bowl, mix the peanut butter, butter, sugar and molasses until soft and creamy. Using a stand mixer is really helpful, especially when you start adding the flour.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and combine well.
  • In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients and whisk until well-combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, a little at a time, and combine completely.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  • Spoon about 2 tablespoons at a time onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or greased). Flatten them each lightly.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes. Don't overbake or they'll get crispy. Let them rest on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
