Delectable Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

This is a LOADED CHOCOLATE /PEANUT
BUTTER CUP COOKIE....Loaded with Reese's
Pieces, Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups,
Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter & a Chocolate
dough...Wow that's chocolaty.......

These would be great for a special occasion.
I found these on a number of blogs, pretty much
the same recipe, This one was adapted from
Kitchen Cafe ....(I didn't put the 1 cup of peanut
butter chips that was in the original recipe & you
may want to do that)....

Ingredients:

1 Cup Butter, (softened)
3/4 C. Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy)
(I used crunchy)
3/4 C. Sugar
3/4 C. packed Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 1/3 C. Flour
1/3 C. Cocoa Powder (I think I would use not
as much..... maybe 1/4 -1/2 Cup)..you decide
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1 Bag Reese's Pieces

~Note: Cut the Peanut Butter Cups in half
(gently) and put in refrigerator or freezer
til ready to use. Original Recipe said to
freeze first.......(but 1 blogger stated she had
problems cutting them after they were
frozen)....we don't want problems like that...

Preheat Oven to 350F.

In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together
softened butter, peanut butter, white sugar, &
brown sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a
time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa,
& baking soda; stir into the creamed mixture.
Mix in chocolate chips, & Reese's Pieces (hand
stir them in so the shells of the Reese's Pieces don't
get broken).

I used a Cookie Scoop to have each cookie round &
look more uniformed. I also used a Slipat Cookie
sheet liner...(they are the BEST non-stick liners!!!)
These are 2 of my Favorite Kitchen Items......

Push one Peanut Butter Cup half into the center of
each ball of dough. Bake for 8 to 10 min. (My oven
they were done at 9 min. (You don't want them to
fall apart so make sure you let them cool completely
before lifting them off the cookie sheet).....

  2. Thank you for these delicious treats. These were amazing! Leslie and I devoured them! (Terri is abstaining from sugar, so she didn't have any. That was fine by me :-p) I will absolutely be making this for our next work potluck.
