Every week I have to do some cookies for my children. It is a classic in my home that brings us comforting memories. Usually, I can do this with my kids help.

This week I have made some easy, crispy and chewy recipe of peanut butter cookies. These cookies are extra soft and incredibly tasty!

This week I have made some easy, crispy and chewy recipe of peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips. This time I use dark and milk chocolate. These cookies are extra soft and incredibly tasty!

This is a very easy recipe. You can whip up in minutes. All you need is to mix all ingredients in a bowl. Then you will have to keep it in the fridge and wait for almost an hour. And now you are asking me why? It’s simple. The reason I prefer to keep it in the fridge is that cookies dough becomes firmer and easier to mold.

Unfortunately, in my family, these cookies don´t last very long. They grab a big glass of milk and enjoy one of the BEST COOKIES EVER! Everybody eats them just in a second.  When I want to keep some cookies for kids to take to school, I must confess that I have to double the ingredients quantities. You can store the cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
