Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I made these really yummy cookies for my brother's birthday.  Definitely a make again recipe!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Source: Real Simple October 2009 by Kate Merker

1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 c. dark brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
12 oz. package small peanut butter cups, coursely chopped

Heat oven to 375.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.  Wisk together in a medium bowl the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Beat together in a separate bowl the butter and sugars until creamy.  Mix in the egg and vanilla until combined.  Gradually add in the flour mixture until it is just mixed in.  Gently stir in the peanut butter cups.

Drop in tablespoon fulls on the baking sheets about 2 inches apart.  Bake until light brown around the edges, 12-15 minutes.  I would suggest starting at 12 minutes as I did longer and my cookies were a bit hard after they cooled.
