Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Good Morning Lovelies! I am a peanut butter addict. On toast, in my oatmeal and most importantly in cookie form! Sharing my super duper peanut butter cup cookie recipe today. Peanut butter + mini peanut butter cups = one amazingly awesome cookie.

Ingredients:

1 stick of softened butter

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup of granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

1 3/4 cup of flour

1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1 cup of smooth peanut butter

12 oz of mini peanut butter cups for baking {I love the Trader Joe tiny PB cups}

yields approximately 24 cookies

Directions:

1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2 – Add the butter, brown sugar & granulated sugar to your mixer. Using the paddle attachment whip the ingredients until fluffy {approx. 2 minutes on medium}. Be sure to stop and scrape down the sides.

3 – Stop mixer and add egg and vanilla and continue to beat mixture for another 2 minutes.

4 – Stop mixer and add 1 cup of peanut butter then mix until well blended.

5 – Turn mixer to lowest setting and add flour, baking soda and salt.

7 – Once mixture looks like it is coming together add the mini peanut butter cups to the mixture. Tip: Add very soon after you add the flour mixture.

6 – Scoop mixture using a small to medium size cookie scoop on to parchment paper. It is okay if the cookies appear to be like little ice cream scoops.

7 – Bake for 12-14 minutes {one cookie sheet at a time, in the center rack}.

8 – Pour yourself a glass of milk because these cookies are peanut buttery!

Note:

Make sure to mix the flour, baking soda and salt together before you add it to your peanut butter, egg mixture.

My oven tends to cook them faster, so I cook them for 12 minutes.

If you wanted it extra chocolaty add some chocolate chips to it, makes a delicious cookie even better.

Happy Baking!
