Soft peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips and Reese's cup bits throughout!
I adore peanut butter cookies. My mom made them a lot when I was little and I always got to help make the little markings on the top with a fork. As an adult, I am still on the hunt for the perfect classic peanut butter cookie. However, I get distracted into finding recipes like this one where it's not just a plain peanut butter cookie. Side note: if you have a go-to peanut butter cookie recipe, I would be forever grateful if you commented and shared a link!
I found these cookies and couldn't pass up making them because I am a sucker for chocolate chip cookies and I loved the addition of Reese's cups. I tried to place a few on them after the oven and they didn't really stay and they were kind of messy, so my chopped cups went into the cookie dough and that result was much better for me!
What you need:
- 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 bag Mini Reese's peanut butter cups, chopped
- Cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter until light and fluffy
- Add eggs and vanilla and combine.
- Slowly add in flour, salt, and baking soda and mix until combined.
- Fold in chocolate chips and Reese's cups (you can also reserve them for topping the cookies fresh out of the oven).
- Using a cookie scooper, scoop dough onto a parchment paper or silicone mat lined baking sheet and then slightly flatten with your hand.
- Bake cookies for 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.
- Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack.
