Small Batch Peanut Butter Cookies

The boys were out of school last week. When they’re home, I always make more desserts. They love to help cook; they especially love helping me make cookies. I warned them beforehand that this was going to be a small batch cookie and that we wouldn’t have much dough to eat if we wanted to have any cooked cookies to eat. They assured me it was okay, but when all was said and done, they’re a lot like me and regretted not getting to eat any of the cookie dough.

I made these Small Batch Toffee Cookies and thought it was just the right amount of cookies. I like cookies to be fresh, actually I like to eat them when they’re just out of the oven. I thought cutting down the batch to make just 10 to 12 cookies was genius. That was until the boys helped me make a batch. They much prefer to have plenty of dough to eat before baking the cookies. Note to self, when they help make a regular batch and freeze the leftover dough!

These Small Batch Peanut Butter Cookies have a rich peanut butter flavor. I like to under cook my cookies so they’re still soft and gooey. These cookies take just minutes, maybe seven, to mix together. I do recommend chilling to dough before cooking. If you don’t chill the dough you’ll have thin cookies, not fat chewy cookies. When you plan to make them, plan for that chilling time.

  1. You are the small batch Queen. I normally cut my batches in half, because I have a ‘thing’ about cookies being fresh. I often take cookies to work. If the previous cookies I baked are over 2 days old, I toss them in favor of the fresh ones. BUT once I discovered my boss fishing the cookies out of the trash, I gave up about the matter. Wasn’t there a Seinfeld episode about getting food out of the trash???? You do make a wonderful selection of cookies.

    • I remember that episode, it was with a donut. too funny, just make a normal batch and take them to your boss sounds like he likes them.

  2. What a brilliant idea. Of course, 10-12 cookies will be gone in a day but that is better than 48 being gone in 2! We have a cookie-thing going around here. Paula, if you haven’t already, will you come by one of my blog hops and share this? You know the drill, we go live Tuesday eve for Wonderful Wednesday. The FB party goes live tonight at 10:30pm

  3. These cookies look so soft and delicious! I would probably eat the whole batch :)

  4. What a great idea to make a small batch. I like baking cookies but sometimes the big batches take so long to make and I end up with too many cookies that tempt me all day! I love it that I have all these ingredients on hand already! Pinning this and hoping to try it out soon!

  5. Yum! Just pinned this! I need to start baking more!

  6. These look AWESOME Paula!! My dad is obsessed with PB cookies and he only likes the soft ones.

    • Thank you Julie! Me too. I always have to make the boys and I a batch and Wesley a different batch because he likes crispy cookies.

  7. I’m eating some of these cookies as I write this, delicious . I think I erred though. don’t know why but I flattened the cookies before I baked, probably shouldn’t have done that, because my cookies weren’t soft nor crispy but chewy. My only problem with these cookies are that they’re too tempting .

    • I like thick gooey cookies so I never flatten them (for myself) but my husband loves flat crispy cookies.
