I was never a fan of sugar cookies. My all-time favorite cookie is the chocolate peanut butter chip cookies on the back of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chip bag. My brother is quite the sugar cookie fan. So why am I bothering with a post about chocolate sugar cookies?

Well, between the chocolate peanut butter cookies and my topping my morning waffles with peanut butter and Nutella, I have a slight obsession with chocolate and peanut butter. I found this recipe on Pinterest (linked below) and all I could think was I could smear peanut butter on these!!!

I haven’t made sugar cookies in any form in probably 20 years. They were part of the Christmas cookie rotation my mom went through each year during her baking spree.

This recipe can be found at the blog: http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2016/03/07/chocolate-sugar-cookies/.

On the Cooling Rack:

The cookie cutters I used were: a witch’s hat, a broom, a maple leaf, an acorn, another leaf shape (blanking on the type of leaf!), and a small half-moon shape to get as many cookies out of that dough as possible. I also managed to get all of them on my large cookie sheet.

I, of course, had to Quality Control this batch. Being the type of cookie lover that prefers a chewier cookie, these passed my test! They were still too warm (read: fragile) to smear with peanut butter.

Once they completely cooled, I added whipped peanut butter. And the result….it was alright. The cookie itself isn’t very sweet, which is fine by me. But peanut butter frosting would probably be a better choice.

Husband likes them too! Normally, he’s a firmer cookie lover, but he liked how chewy these turned out to be.

My husband and I are both cookie monsters, so I don’t expect these cookies to be hanging around long. Plain or “frosted” with PB, I think these chocolate sugar cookies are marvelous! I never thought about looking for a chocolate sugar cookie recipe. I’m glad this one popped up into my Pinterest feed.

    I’m with you on the peanut butter. Everything (well, not everything) tastes better with peanut butter. Loved the cookie cutters. Cool that you have a collection of them!

      You’ll need to do peanut butter icing. Straight peanut butter didn’t work as well as I thought it would.
