Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies

Get the hot chocolate ready and let's make cookies!

Tempt my Tummy Tuesday.  In keeping with my past format I am sharing a family favorite recipe today.  Last August I found this chocolate chip cookie recipe and it is a keeper for sure.  Give it a try and see if you don't agree.  

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups chopped peanut butter cups (about six 1.6-ounce packages)

In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.  Stir in chocolate chips and peanut butter cups.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking
sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks.  Yield: 7-1/2 dozen.

Note: I buy the mini peanut butter cups that are already unwrapped and just chop them slightly saving time.

Blessings and Hugs,
