Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 C. butter room temperature
  • 1 C. brown sugar
  • 1 C. granulated sugar
  • 3/4 C. peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 3/4 C. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 C. milk chocolate chips
  • 1 C. mini peanut butter cups

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line cook sheets with parchment paper.
  2. 2. In a stand mixer combine butter, sugar and brown sugar. Beat for 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add in peanut butter and beat for 1 more minute. Add eggs and vanilla and gently combine.
  3. 3. In a separate bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together.
  4. 4. Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Just before it's totally combined, add in 1 1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips. Stir until just barely combined.
  5. 5. Make dough balls (mine were large, about 1/4 cup) and place them on cookies sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes (less time for smaller cookies). Be careful not to over bake because pb cookies can turn out dry if you do!
  6. 6. When you pull them out of the oven, give them 1 or 2 minutes to cool and then press in the extra milk chocolate chips and the peanut butter cups. Just push them into the cookies to make them look picture perfect! They'll melt a bit once added!
  7. NOTE: Next time I make these I'll be making them smaller because the mega cookies were a tad too rich for me, but we ate them with ice cream and it was incredible!
