My favorite cookies

I am so excited to participate in Jessica's First Annual Cookie Recipe Exchange! Check out the link above for many cool cookie recipes, just in time for your Christmas baking!

But truly, these cookies are WONDERFUL. I have made them so many times and they always get rave reviews. How can you go wrong with a cookie that has peanuts, peanut butter and peanut butter cups?

extra chunky peanut butter cookies

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped Reese's peanut butter cups
1 cup dry roasted peanuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl.
Beat peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and butter in large bowl with electric mixer until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture; beat until well blended. Stir in chopped candy and peanuts.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake about 13 minutes or until set. Cool on cookie sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
