Peanut Butter Time!

So, I love peanut butter. It’s great with apples, graham crackers, in peanut butter jelly bars, and of course in cookies. 

 

I’m making some cookies tonight from one of my favorite bloggers: Sweet Pea Kitchen. She’s just a might pregnant (congrats!) and she’s very excited about chocolate and peanut butter lately. She’s posted Reese Peanut Butter Cookies and I thought that sounded great! My coworkers aren’t pregnant, but they have gaping sweet teeth. 

 

So here it is; this will be brought to work tomorrow. 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 cup light brown sugar

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups milk chocolate chips

  • 2 cups chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups

 

Directions:

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugars and peanut butter until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed, scraping the side of the bowl occasionally, until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Roll a heaping tablespoon of dough into a 1½-inch ball and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten balls slightly into 3/4-inch disks. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the balls about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake 8 minutes, then remove cookies from oven and lightly press cut up pieces of the Reese’s peanut butter cups over the top of each cookie. Return to oven until Reese’s peanut butter cups are slightly melted and cookie edges are slightly golden brown, about 2 more minutes. Cool cookies for 2 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.


Yields: 4 dozen cookies
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 10 minutes
