Peanut Butter Cookies with Mini Peanut Butter Cups

On Cookie Madness blog I found this cookie recipe. It is most likely the best peanut butter cookie I have made. Zehrs had the mini peanut butter cups so I was all set to make the cookies.

Peanut Butter Cookies with Mini Peanut Butter Cups

1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
8 tbsp. softened butter
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cups peanut butter (used Kraft)
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup mini peanut butter cups
1/3 cup chopped salted peanuts (did not use)


In medium bowl whisk flour and baking soda together and set aside.
In bowl of mixer add butter, sugar, brown sugar and salt and beat on medium until smooth and creamy. About 1 minute.
Add peanut butter, egg and vanilla and beat for about 30 seconds.
Remove bowl from mixer and stir flour mixture in until combined.
Cover dough with plastic wrap and put in frig for 2 hours or over night. (I put in frig overnight)

Preheat oven to 325ยบ.
Take tablespoon sized bits of dough from bowl and roll into balls.
Place on baking sheet 2 1/2" apart.
Use a fork to make the marks on the cookies or whatever design you wish, just make sure they are about 1/2' thick.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Cool cookies before storing in your cookie jar.
Make about 36 cookies.

Rosemary..They are the president choice brand.

Brownieville could use peanut butter chips as well..they would be just a good.....Or you could chop up peanut butter cups the large size. That might even be better... :)
