3) Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, chocolate chips and peanut butter chips until blended. (Dough will be soft and creamy) Let the dough sit for about 10 minutes. The dough is much easier to work with if you do this!

How To Store Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
You can store these peanut butter cookies in an airtight container or even sealable bag. They will last 4-5 days on the counter. If you don’t think you will eat them in time, I suggest freezing extra peanut butter cookies.
Best Way To Freeze Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
The best way to freeze these cookies is to allow them to cool completely before you transfer to a container to freeze them. Lay them in a bag or container and store up to three months. When you want some, pull them out and allow the cookies to thaw on the counter or pop in the microwave for a quick reheat.
You can also freeze the dough if you don’t want to bake the cookies beforehand. Prep the dough and place in a plastic wrap and roll it so the dough is sliceable. Place in a freezer bag or wrap tightly in a few layers of aluminum foil. Then slice and arrange on a baking sheet to cook. You will add cooking time on due to frozen cookie dough in this case.
Do I Have To Add Peanuts On Peanut Butter Cookies
No, you do not. This is optional if you are a fan of crunch and peanuts, then add some on. They also give the cookies a fun look to them, and adds flavor but feel free to leave them off if you prefer.
