Best Chewy Peanut Butter Cup & Chocolate Chip Cookies
Marlynn Schotland, Urban Bliss Life
2 sticks softened unsalted butter
packed brown sugar
very hot water
mini peanut butter cups
roughly chopped into chocolate-chip-size pieces
dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a stand mixer on low, thoroughly mix the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar for 2-3 minutes. Scrap the sides down a couple of times during the process to ensure even mixing.
Add the eggs, mixing in one at a time.
Add the vanilla extract. Again, scraping down the sides as you go to ensure even mixing.
In a small bowl, mix the baking soda with the hot water until the baking soda dissolves evenly. Then add to the rest of the mixture.
Gradually and gently add one cup of flour at a time, scraping down the sides of the mixing bowl in between each addition.
Add the peanut butter cups and the chocolate chips. Mix until just blended. Don't overmix!
Drop by tablespoonful onto greased cookie sheets (I use a Silpat on a perforated baking sheet).
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Set onto cooling racks and allow to cool for at least five minutes.
