½ c butter, softened

1 c creamy peanut butter

1 c granulated sugar

½ c light brown sugar, packed

2 large eggs

½ tsp vanilla extract

2 c all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

48 chocolate melting disks

144 chocolate chips


Preheat your oven to 350°F.

In a bowl beat together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until they become smooth.

Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the mixture. Mix them well.

In another bowl gently stir the flour, baking soda and salt together until they are evenly combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture while blending them thoroughly.

Use a tablespoon to scoop out portions of dough onto a baking sheet. Shape them into tablespoons, with about two inches of space between each cookie.

Place the baking sheet in your preheated oven. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes. The cookies should appear puffy. Set when done.

After removing from the oven press a chocolate disk into the center of each cookie. Create a paw print by placing three chocolate chips around it.

Transfer your cookies onto a wire rack to cool completely.


For those who adore the concept of these Peanut Butter Paw Print Cookies but require an alternative worry not! You can effortlessly modify this recipe to create a delight with just a few simple replacements. Instead of all-purpose flour opt for your preferred gluten-free all-purpose flour blend – one that substitutes on a one-to-one basis works best. Make sure your free flour blend already incorporates xanthan gum, a component for achieving the desired texture. Additionally, double check that the peanut butter, chocolate disks and chocolate chips you use are certified gluten-free since certain brands might have traces of gluten due, to cross-contamination.
