3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cup hershey chocolate chips
3 bags of Reeses Peanut Butter Bites
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Start off by combining the butter, brown sugar, sugar, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Blend on medium for 2 minutes.
Next just add the baking soda, salt and flour. (I add the flour in 1/2 cup portions)
Blend on medium, again for 1-2 minutes.
Fold in the chocolate chips using a large spoon or spatula
Now you are going to ball up the dough into a size just slightly smaller than a golf ball. These cookies are bigger than normal.
(Feel free to make smaller cookies just adjust the cooking time)
Place the balls on an ungreased cookie sheet. On my standard sized cookie sheet I only put 6 on at a time. Continue by using your palm to press down the balls to create a flat top.
Place in oven for 11 minutes.
While waiting, cut up your Reeses Peanut Butter Cups like so...
After the 11 minutes is up, remove the pan from the oven and press the candies in to the top of the hot cookies
Return the pan into the oven for an additional 3 minutes. Let stand for only a minute on the pan and then move to a cooling rack or wax paper!
Makes about 3-4 batches.
They are wonderful with a scoop of vanilla ice cream :)
