Ingredients

1 c
unsalted butter, softened
2/3 c
peanut butter, i used jiff omega 3
1 c
sugar
1 c
brown sugar
2
eggs
1 tsp
double strength vanilla or 2 tsp. regular
2 1/4 c
flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
1 1/2 c
semi sweet dark chocolate chips
1 pkg
reese's mini peanut butter cups (the unwrapped type- they are tiny)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a stand up mixer or large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and the sugars until they are light and fluffy. Make sure the sugar is disolved.
2
Next beat in the eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt and gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
3
Stir in the chocolate chips and the peanut butter cups (I cut mine in half but next time will not).
4
I chilled mine overnight but chill at least one hour. Bake at 350° and drop by the rounded teaspoons on parchment paper on a cookie sheet until edges are lightly brown about 10 minutes. Cool for a few moments and then remove to the wire rack.
5
Note: I always do a test run before I bake all my cookies this way I can make sure the oven temp is right and so is the baking time for my oven. I will bake only 1 cookie first. That way if I don't have the timing right for my particular oven, I will only lose 1 cookie and not an entire sheet of them.
