1 cup creamy peanut butter

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 large eggs

1/2 cup softened butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Melting chocolate disks (one per cookie)

Chocolate chips (3 per cookie)

Note: For 48 cookies, prepare 48 chocolate disks and 144 chocolate chips.


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Mix softened butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar in a large bowl until creamy.

Blend in eggs and vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.

Gradually fold the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture.

Scoop tablespoons of dough onto a baking sheet, spacing them two inches apart. Optionally, roll them in granulated sugar.

Bake for about 8 minutes until puffy and set.

While warm, press a chocolate disk and three chocolate chips into each cookie to form a paw print.

Cool on a wire rack, allowing the chocolate to set.
