Default In search of a chewy peanut butter cookie

Have baked a couple different recipes for peanut butter cookies that are claimed to be 'chewy'.
I follow the recipes exactly but do not end up with what I say is chewy. Anyone have a recipe for a chewy peanut butter cookie that they would share? Thanks so much.

I really like using the Peanut Butter Blossom cookie recipe and roll into balls and bake them and NOT put any Hershey's Kisses on the top when they come out of the oven. They seem to be quite chewy. HTH

The best secret I found was to use a mix of Crisco Butter Flavored shortening and butter. Half and half of each. Use any recipe you have just make this adjustment.

I have been baking for 47 years, and I finally found the perfect peanut butter cookie recipe. Do you watch the FoodNetwork Show, Farmhouse Rules? Well google the show and you can get the BEST Peanut Butter cookie recipe. I have made this at least 10 times in the last year and if I can get 2 cookies from a batch I consider it a good baking day. They never last. And at the volunteer bake sale for the pee wee ball team, they sold these cookies for 3 dollars a piece. I mean every word they are the BOMB. I even got my baby sister to admit they were better than her Better homes and garden recipe. Now that is almost a miracle. Enjoy.

I think using brown sugar in a recipe is what makes it chewy. You could try adding molasses.

Have you tried King Arthur? Their recipes never disappoint me and I do a lot of baking. Good luck. Let me know. I'm always looking for new cookie recipes.

I have never tried this on my peanut butter cookies. But to make my chocolate chip ookies chewy I - decrease the white sugar and replace it with brown sugar, remove one of the egg yolks and replace it with a tbsp of milk. Make chewy choc chip cookies.

gennie1950, I tried searching for the peanut butter cookie recipe on foodnetwork farmhouse rules, but came up with a lot of different recipes. Which one do you use?
