Everyone, and I mean everyone needs a good peanut butter chocolate chip cookies recipe. One that’s not crisp and crunchy, but one that’s tender, gooey, and chocolate-y with the perfectly creamy peanut butter flavor.
Recently I was able to spend a week in Rexburg, Idaho. I know what some of you are thinking, “why would you ever spend a week in a little town in Idaho?!”, but it’s because my parents just moved there. And, I actually think it is a lovely town. Take away the wind and crappy winter, and I think I could actually live there. It’s quiet, the pace is a bit slower, and it’s beautiful. I really enjoy the people too. I love farmers. I truly do. They are the most compassionate, hard working, and lovely people that I know. Did I mention hard working? I love that it can be dark out and yet you will see the farmers out on their tractors getting ready to start planting.
My girls especially loved it. Mom and Dad have a big back yard and my little brother hung this sweet tire swing for P. Oh my lands, she loves that thing. She was so nervous at first, and then you couldn’t swing her high enough or fast enough.
Will Peanut Butter Hurt Dogs?
Most peanut butter is safe for dogs to eat, and in moderation peanut butter can be an excellent source of protein and healthy fats, vitamins B and E, and niacin.
However, some peanut butter contains a sweetener called Xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.
Xylitol causes a rapid release of insulin in dogs, which results in an equally rapid and profound decrease in blood sugar levels. and can be life threatening if left untreated.
All you need to do is check the label of the peanut butter and any other product you plan on feeding toyour dogs for xylitol, and keep xylitol products out of their dogs’ reach.
Is Peanut Butter Still Good If It Separates?
Yes, peanut butter is still good, and fine to eat if it separates.
Peanut butter contains a lot of oil, and sometimes the oil will separate.
When the oil is coming out its fine to mix it back in, as it will keep it spreading nicely.
Can You Freeze Peanut Butter Cookies?

Place the cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze.
Once frozen, transfer cookies to a heavy duty freezer bag and store for up to 3 months.
