Triple Threat Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 38 Cookies
Inspiration: Real Mom Kitchen Blog

1 ½ Sticks Imperial 53% Vegetable Oil Spread, Softened
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Peanut Butter
2 Large Eggs
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
½ Teaspoon Salt
2 ½ Cups Flour
25 mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Cut into 4 Pieces
75 mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Cut into 4 pieces
Optional: Salt to Taste

1.     Pre-Heat Oven to 350˚
2.    Use a wooden spoon to mix the Butter, Sugar, Brown Sugar and Vanilla.
3.    Stir in Eggs one at a time.
4.    Sift together Baking Soda, Salt & Flour. 
5.    Incorporate Flour Mixture into Sugar Mixture.
6.    Add 25 of the quartered mini Reese’s and stir to combine.
7.    Optional: Lightly sprinkle the 75 mini Reese’s with salt.
8.    Scoop out 2 Tablespoons of Dough and Roll into a ball.  Roll each ball in sugar.  Use a glass to slightly flatten the balls.
9.    Bake on 350˚ for 12 Minutes.
10.  Remove cookies from oven and add 7-8 of the quartered mini Reese’s.  Return the cookies to the oven and bake an additional 5-7 minutes.   Let the cookies slightly cool on the baking sheet before moving to a wire rack.

This recipe was inspired by the Real Mom Kitchen’s recipe for Over the Top Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies… I made a couple of slight changes and made it my own… I just couldn’t resist adding Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to the dough instead of Chocolate Chips…  My girlfriend Laura helped me decide on the name Triple Threat Peanut Butter Cookies.  It seemed to fit because of the Peanut Butter IN the dough, the Peanut Butter in the mini Reese’s that went INTO the dough and the mini Reese’s the top the cookies! 

I hope you’ll enjoy them JUST AS MUCH AS WE DO!
