day 7 - peanut butter cup cookies
Given all the baking I've done recently, I thought I'd let my kids pick the cookies we'd make for tonight's party. They chose these yummy peanut butter cup cookies. I had the recipe in a magazine with kitchen gifts, so I'll include the recipe, and the packaging instructions if you choose to gift this!
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Place 20 mini peanut butter cups, chopped in a ziploc bag. Combine 1 3/4 cup flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda in another ziploc bag. Instructions for baking: Place dry mix in a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup butter, softened and 1 beaten egg, 1 tsp vanilla. Stir until completely blended. Stir in peanut butter cups. Shape into 1 1/2" balls & place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 375* for 12-14 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on pan before transfering to rack. Makes 2 dozen.
