Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Ok, these are the best cookies I have made in really long time. They are crunchy around the edge and chewy in the middle. Perfect combo of chocolate and peanut butter plus some chopped peanuts thrown in for extra texture. I guarantee these will be gone quickly and I've packaged up a few for friends before my hubby and I eat them all. Here is the recipe:
1 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
1 C All-Purpose Flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 C room temperature unsalted butter, I usually cheat and soften in the microwave
3/4 granulated sugar
3/4 brown sugar
1 t vanilla, I use the bourbon vanilla extract from Trader Joes
2 eggs
2 C mini peanut butter cups, you can find these at Trader Joes
1 C chopped peanuts

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl
Combine butter, sugars and vanilla in a large bowl
Add eggs to the butter, sugars and vanilla, mix until well combined
Slowly add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Then stir in peanut butter cups and peanuts.
I use a small ice cream scoop to drop mounds of dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Bake in preheated 375 degree oven until golden brown.

  1. These look terrific! I've never made this flavor of cookie. I'll have to give it a try! With money being a bit tighter this year I may be giving cookies to everyone for a gift. I think everybody would love these!
