Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Since Don likes cookies in his lunch, I seem to be working my way through the Taste of Home cookie cookbook!  These are nice and crunchy and I had all the ingredients in the house!
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Faith Jensen Taste of Home Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups chopped peanut butter cups (about six 1.6-ounce packages)

1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and peanut butter cups.

2. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Yield: 7-1/2 dozen. Beth got 5 dozen using a small cookie scoop.

Editor's Note: Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe
