Soft & Thick Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

Soft & Thick Peanut Butter Cookies

Welcome to the one and only peanut butter cookie recipe you’ll ever need again.

The cookies are soft, thick, puffy, and will melt in your mouth.  They are not hard or crunchy like traditional peanut butter cookies.  In fact, they get softer on day 2 and day 3.

I’ve used this cookie dough for several of my favorite cookies:

To make the Peanut Butter Hug Blossoms, simply make the cookies according the recipe, then press a Hershey’s Kisses Hug into each cookie when they come out of the oven.  Quickly stick the baking sheet in the freezer or fridge so the warm cookie does not completely melt the Hershey’s Kisses Hug. Let the chocolate set (about 15 minutes) on the cookies in the freezer/refrigerator.
