I really wanted to make peanut butter cookies this year but I wanted to do something a little different, so…what goes better than peanut butter and chocolate? Here is my recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Cookies.
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups peanut butter cups (I used Trader Joes Mini’s)
In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and peanut butter cups.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.
