Tasty Tuesday: Peanut Butter-Cup Cookies

October 26, 2010

It’s still hot here. I so long to be making cider and spiced cookies, but instead I’m still craving a strawberry shortcake, (not so fall-ish). I’ve determined to begin to embrace fall baking, even if I’m doing it in a sundress. It’ll be a gradual process, but it has begun.

I found this recipe in Real Simple about a year ago in one of their Fall/ Halloween baking articles and just never seemed to find time to make the yummy goodness.  This weekend I made the time to try the cookies. Boy, were they good! Not only did they come out picture perfect, but they taste AMAZING!

Here’s the recipe:

The Good Stuff Inside

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 12-ounce package small peanut butter cups, coarsely chopped


  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Fold in the peanut butter cups.
  3. Drop tablespoon-size mounds of dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake until light brown around the edges, 12 to 15 minutes. ( I like them gooey so I’d take them out at 13minutes.) Transfer to a baking rack to cool.
Have a Tasty Tuesday!
