Tips for baking Peanut Butter Cookies

Before you start baking, there are a few tips and tricks you should know to ensure your cookies turn out perfect every time. Here are some of our top tips for baking peanut butter cookies:

1. Use room temperature ingredients

Using room temperature ingredients is essential for making sure your cookies bake evenly. When your ingredients are at room temperature, they mix together more easily, resulting in a smoother dough. This means your cookies will bake evenly, which is especially important for cookies like peanut butter cookies, which can be prone to burning on the bottom.

2. Chill your dough

Chilling your dough is another important step in ensuring your cookies turn out perfectly. When you chill your dough, it allows the ingredients to meld together, resulting in a more flavorful cookie. It also helps the dough firm up, which makes it easier to form into balls before baking. We recommend chilling your dough for at least 30 minutes before baking, but you can also chill it overnight for even better results.

3. Don't overbake your cookies

Overbaking your cookies is one of the most common mistakes people make when baking peanut butter cookies. Peanut butter cookies can be tricky because they don't change color much as they bake, so it can be hard to tell when they're done. We recommend baking your cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to turn golden brown. The cookies will continue to bake on the sheet for a few minutes after you take them out of the oven, so it's important not to overbake them.

Now that you know our top tips for baking peanut butter cookies, it's time to get started on the recipe!

Peanut Butter Cookie Variations and Add-Ins

Now that you have the perfect peanut butter cookie recipe, it's time to get creative with some fun variations and add-ins. Here are some of our favorite ways to mix up this classic cookie:

Chocolate Chips

Adding chocolate chips to your peanut butter cookies is a classic combination that never gets old. Simply fold in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to your dough before chilling and baking.

M&M's

For a fun and colorful twist, add 1/2 cup of M&M's to your dough before chilling and baking. This is a great option for kids' parties or any occasion that calls for a pop of color.

Jam Thumbprints

For a more sophisticated take on peanut butter cookies, try making jam thumbprints. After forming your dough balls, use your thumb to make an indentation in the center of each ball. Fill each indentation with a small spoonful of your favorite jam before baking.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies

If you love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, then you'll love these peanut butter and jelly sandwich cookies. Simply sandwich a small spoonful of your favorite jelly or jam between two peanut butter cookies for a delicious and nostalgic treat.
