This recipe comes from another cooking blog that I check out regularly, Real Mom Kitchen.  I think this is the first of her recipes that I have tried and the cookies turned out great!  I will definitely go back to find more things to cook.  These cookies are rich and delicious!!!

3/4 butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup peanut butter

2 large eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

32 mini Reeseā€™s peanut butter cups, chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Sift together the baking soda, salt & flour; set aside.  With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and two sugars.  Add the eggs one at a time.  Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla.  Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.  Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips.


Scoop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet and use your hand to slightly flatten each cookie.  Cook for 12 minutes.  Remove from the oven and lightly press about 6 to 8 pieces of the chopped peanut butter cups onto each cookie.  Return the cookies to the oven to bake for another 2 minutes.  Cool on the sheet for about 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. I like to use two cookie sheets so I can bake the next batch without waiting for the first to cool.  Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
