Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

















I just made these this afternoon. They are probably still warm and just perfect for a late night snack with a cold glass of milk. What do you think?

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup butter...
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
2 cups miniature Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
1/4 cup melted chocolate chips

Beat peanut butter and butter. Beat in sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in flour. Stir in peanut butter cups. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour. Scoop dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake 12 minutes at 375. Cool. Drizzle cookies with melted chocolate.

  1. These look wonderful and remind me of a delicious cookie I found at our local Italian bakery. It was a sandwich cookie, made of two butter cookies about the size and thickness of 'Nilla Wafers. They were sandwiched together with Nutella (I had never had it before - WOW!) and then Nutella and melted chocolate were combined and drizzled over the top. Delicious. My favorite cookies to make are Spritz (my Mom's favorite) and I can already imagine Nutella spread between two of the flat, ridged Spritz.
