Peter Pan Neverland Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve never met a peanut butter cookie I didn’t like.

Between dozens on my blog and many more in my first cookbook, I can never have too many recipes for them.

These soft and chewy cookies loaded with chocolate chips are right up my alley.

I used the new Peter Pan® Simply Ground Peanut Butter. It’s no-stir and spreads like a creamy peanut butter but has a crunch-like texture. The consistency is like peanut butter ground by hand but without the hassle. It’s creamy with a bit of crunch.

The subtle crunch of the peanut butter gives the cookies a slight nutty texture.

And the fun name reminds me of all the dozens and dozens of times I’ve rode the Peter Pan ride at Disneyworld and Disneyland, both as a kid and as a mom taking my kid, and wishing I had some of these cookies to snack on while waiting in line.

If you’re like me and can’t resist the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, you’re going to love the cookies.

I took the cookies to a party and they were gone in minutes. Never mind that my daughter ate five and declared they’re one of her new favorite cookies.

Peter Pan Neverland Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve never met a peanut butter cookie I didn’t like and these soft and chewy cookies loaded with chocolate chips are right up my alley. The peanut butter is creamy with a bit of crunch and gives the cookies a slight nutty texture. If you can’t resist the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, you’re going to love the cookies.

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • heaping 3/4 cup Peter Pan Simply Ground Original Peanut Butter®
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or large bowl and electric hand mixer), add the egg, butter, sugars, and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the peanut butter, vanilla, and mix on medium-high speed until incorporated, about 1 minute.
  3. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the flour, baking soda, salt, and mix on low speed until just incorporated, about 1 minute; don’t overmix.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and mix on low speed until just incorporated.
  5. Using a two-tablespoon cookie scoop form approximately 18 equal-sized mounds of dough. Tip – Strategically place a few chocolate chips on top of each mound of dough by taking chips from the underside and adding them on top.
  6. Place mounds on a large plate or tray, cover with plasticwrap, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, up to 5 days. Do not bake with unchilled dough because cookies will bake thinner, flatter, and be more prone to spreading.
  7. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray. Place dough mounds on baking sheet, spaced at least 2 inches apart (I bake 8 cookies per sheet) and bake for about 11 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just set, even if slightly undercooked, pale, and glossy in the center; don’t overbake. Cookies firm up as they cool. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before serving. I let them cool on the baking sheet and don’t use a rack.
  8. Cookies will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Alternatively, unbaked cookie dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 4 months, so consider baking only as many cookies as desired and save the remaining dough to be baked in the future when desired.
