Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

  1. 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (recommended: Skippy or Jif)
    1/2 cup dark brown sugar
    8 peanut butter cups, such as Reese's, pulverized to a paste, plus 1 cup (7-8) peanut butter cups, chopped
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup chocolate chunks

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl (or mixer), cream together butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add brown sugar and pulverized peanut butter cups. Mix again until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add eggs, 1 at a time, blending slowly until mixed; stir in vanilla.
  5. In 3 batches, add flour mixture on low speed until blended.
  6. Add chopped peanut butter cups and chocolate chunks. Mix thoroughly.
  7. Using your hands, make small 1-1/2-inch balls. Flatten balls, and create a crisscross pattern using tines of a fork. Bake on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet until the cookies are just beginning to brown, about 13 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven, and cool on the sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack. Store in airtight container.
