I just can’t get away from the “peanut butter” theme I have going with the recipes I’ve been posting lately. What can I say… my family LOVES peanut butter.
In addition to the usual peanut butter that is mixed into the batter, these peanut butter cookies are also loaded with Reese’s peanut butter chips – which makes them doubly delicious!!
I used Fred Meyers Roasted Peanuts & Honey Creamy Peanut Butter for these cookies. I usually use crunchy peanut butter when I’m baking, but I just love the touch of honey that is blended into this creamy peanut butter. It tastes wonderful.
Double Peanut Butter Cookies
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy; your choice.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (10 ounce) package REESE’S Peanut Butter Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and peanut butter until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Fold in peanut butter chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2-inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until lightly browned around edges.
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet. Remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack and cool completely.
