Is there really anything better than a chocolate chip cookie? (Or the cookie dough that you’re NOT supposed to eat, but I do…)

Well something that could be better is a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie.

Taking one of my favorite dessert recipes and adding another favorite ingredient, just.made.sense.

How to Freeze Cookie Dough

If you want to freeze part of the dough for this cookie recipe, simply wrap waxed paper tight around the cookie log, (more instructions on that in the recipe card) and wrap in aluminum foil, tightly.

Place in freezer, and keep up to 6 months.

Simply thaw in the refrigerator overnight, remove the log, and slice and bake when desired.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Tips

When it comes to backing, I’ve found some favorites for cookie supplies and tips to make cookies even better!

  • Bake on parchment paper to reduce clean-up!
  • Or, grab this silicone Silpat Baking Mat to change your cookie-life. It is a gift from heaven! Jamielyn, from I Heart Naptime gifted one of these to me, and I can’t think her enough. It’s a game changer for the bottoms of cookies!
  • Chilling your cookie dough can make a BIG difference in how the finished cookies turn out. Refrigerating solidifies the fats in the cookies, so it takes a longer time to melt when in the oven, makes a fluffier cookie. (Rather than spreading out super thin.)
  • Salt? YES… adding salt can create the perfect salty/sweet contrast. I always shake the shaker one or two times more than the recipe calls for because I love that extra little kick. (It’s a secret I’ve had since making chocolate chips cookies as a little girl.)
  • Let your baking sheet cool before adding a new batch of cookie dough to them. If you don’t, they will start cooking before you place them into the oven
