Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies My family seems to have a thing with chocolate and peanut butter.

I mean a serious “thing”with the combination.

A shopping trip with my mom and sister never ended without a chocolate/peanut butter ice cream cone at Baskin Robbins and you better not touch their Reese’s peanut butter cups!

So I was not overly surprised when my sister made these peanut butter chocolate cookies.

I was surprised, however, that she shared them with me!  Soft, moist and full of both chocolate chips AND chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups, these are very addicting!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups (about 6 1.6 oz. packages)

Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add vanilla.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to the creamed mixture.

Stir in chocolate chips and chopped peanut butter cups.

Drop by rounded Tablespoons about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool about 2 minutes on the sheets before removing to wire racks.

Enjoy!
