Mini Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Filed under: Cookies, Dessert — Tags: , — bettylou79 @ 4:24 am

I found this recipe when I was first reading food blogs this past summer. I stumbled upon it at Deborah’s Culinary Confections, she’s even a local Seattle gal. These cookies turned out delicious and the peanut butter chips were a wonderful hit with my husband who loves anything with peanut butter. The mini peanut butter chips can be found at Trader Joe’s. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups mini peanut butter cups (recommended – Trader Joe’s brand)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar with a hand held mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well incorporated. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Carefully stir in mini peanut butter cups. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.

4. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until just golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
