Chewy Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Somebody stop me…!

I have been eating these peanut butter cookies ever since they first came out of the oven, and I can’t stop! They are so addicting! I don’t know why I do this to myself. This is what happens when I have the day off, and I am home alone with my mixer…

You probably already know that chocolate and peanut butter is one of my all-time favorite combos, and I love pretty much every dessert that combines the two together (like these peanut butter cup cupcakes). These peanut butter cookies are really soft and chewy. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like hard, crunchy peanut butter cookies very much. I prefer my peanut butter cookies to be warm and soft! The best part about these peanut butter cookies are the chopped up peanut butter cup pieces inside. When you take them out of the oven, the peanut butter cups are gooey and delicious!

This weekend went by so fast, but we did get to enjoy the beautiful weather in San Francisco!
