Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Leave a comment

I made these for dessert for our Super Bowl munch fest yesterday.  I really am not a fan of peanut butter but I took a taste and they are quite good ~ even if they are peanut butter.  I cut up a whole bag of Reese’s peanut butter cups miniatures (9oz, 12 oz?)  and only used 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

1 cup butter, soft
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsps vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup semisweet choclate chips
2 cups chopped peanut butter cups

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, peanut, and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and the vanilla. Add in the flour, baking soda and salt and mix well. Stir in the chips and peanut butter cups.

Drop by tbspfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350º for 10-12 minnutes or until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned.

Cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Makes about 6 dozen.

Happy Cooking!
