Peanut Butter Cookies with Peanut butter and chocolate morsels

If you haven't already noticed, I am partial to a bit of peanut butter... well ok a lot of peanut butter! It's something I never used to like eating but now I just can't get enough of it. I still had 1 packet of the Tollhouse Swirled Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter morsels left.  I made the recipe from the pack last time but it wasn't terribly exciting. I saw a recipe for peanut butter cookies on one of my favourite blogs - the caked crusader and thought it would be perfect with the addition of these chocolate chips.  The result is truly amazing cookies especially if you love peanut butter. The smell of the cookie alone is enough to make your mouth water.  The cookies are light and crunchy and full of peanut buttery goodness :)

 adding my swirled milk chocolate & peanut butter morsels

Makes approximately 30 cookies 
90g butter
130g soft brown sugar 
4 heaped tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
1 egg
125g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup swirled milk chocolate & peanut butter morsels (or chocolate chips)

  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  • Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. 
  • Add in the peanut butter.
  • Beat in the egg.
  • Stir in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon and mix well. 
  • Add in the swirled milk chocolate & peanut butter morsels.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop cookie dough onto the baking sheet, allowing room for the cookies to expand. 
  • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. 
  • Allow to cool in the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 


  1. I have half a package of the morsels left. I think this is the recipe for them!

  2. I love peanut butter too! I love your idea of putting chocolate 'morsels' in there too

  3. Love the addition of chocolate chips - genius!

  4. You couldn't ask for a more perfect cookie!! I could eat a whole plate full!! :)

  5. Glad you found a way to use up the morsels! I am so bringing too many packs of these back in my suitcase when I come back to England! lol
