  • Serves

    125g Tararua Butter, softened
    1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy) (125g)
    1/2 cup Chelsea Caster Sugar (113g)
    1/2 cup Chelsea Dark Cane Sugar or Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar (100g)
    1 egg
    1 1/2 cups Edmonds Standard Grade Flour (225g)
    1 tsp Edmonds Baking Powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 cup chocolate chips (175g)
    Sea salt, to sprinkle (optional)


    Preheat oven to 180°C bake. Line 2-3 large baking sheets with baking paper.

    Cream the Tararua Butter, peanut butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg.

    Add Edmonds Standard Grade Flour, Edmonds Baking Powder and salt. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips.

    Roll heaped tablespoons of cookie dough into balls and place on prepared trays, leaving enough room for the cookies to spread. Flatten with a fork. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Leave to cool on trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Sprinkle with a little sea salt, if desired.


    This recipe also works well as a gluten-free option. Simply replace the Edmonds Standard Grade Flour with Edmonds Plain Gluten Free Flour.

we love this recipe. We have added crushed peanuts in there to make it even nuttier. My partner eat it with ice cream. He said if he ever open a cookie shop this would definitely sell it. If he ever open an ice cream parlor, he would sell cookie dough ice cream with this cookie.

its delicous i dont care what you say to these cookies there just delicous its perfect for sitting on the couch and eating chips and watching the lorax taste amazing fom max the 8 year old kid

Easy to make with the kids and turn out really well

This is my absolute fave biscuit recipe! Always a crowd pleaser and my son adores both making and eating them! Highly recommended by our whānau :)

Great but a bit sweet i would use less sugar next time

This recipe is phenomenal!!! I have made it so many times. I now have to do a double batch because they go so quickly. My tip would be to refrigerate the cookie dough for half an hour before baking - it helps the cookies hold their shape and they come out with a lovely squishy texture.

I have made these cookies a number of times. The first time I omitted the egg (rather I forgot the egg), it didn’t spread as much but it was still delicious, more crumbly with a thicker chewier biscuit. The 2nd time I halved the sugar and still came out brilliant. I now have to make two batches, my younger son prefers the eggless version and my older boy loves the original with less sugar. Either way it is a winning recipe quick and easy... so so moreish.

I had to make this Gluten free, so followed the recipe exactly but used plain gluten free flour instead.They turned out really good. I didn't use as many chocolate chips. Came out better that the picture.

Yummy recipe but quite sweet

Pretty Darn Special, caramelized chocolate if you can access is beautiful for a richer addition..♡

Just so yummy!!!

These are amazing and so easy to make.

These are amazing I suck at baking but they turn out perfect every time.

A firm favourite in our household!! :)

Absolutely delicious! I put a chunk of chocolate in the middle of each because I had run out of chocolate chips and it worked really well. Can imagine them with Mars bar in the middle too - very sweet, only need one of these at a time! But will definitely make them again.

Very yummy!
