Soft, a little chewy and a little cakey, these sweet Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are filled with chocolate flavor and perfect with a cup of coffee.


  • 1/2 cup shortening regular or butter flavor

  • 3/4 cup cream peanut butter

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar packed

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla with an electric mixer until well blended. Add the egg and mix just until combined.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir until combined.
  • Scoop the cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet to form 1 to 1 ½ inch dough balls. Use a fork to press the dough down and create the traditional crisscross pattern on each cookie.
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes at 375F just until set around the edges. Cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool.
