Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Chocolate and Peanut Butter is my all time favorite flavor combination. Just take a look at Peanut butter on my side bar. You will see Frosted Peanut Butter Cookies, Peanut Butter Temptations and Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies. This is just a start, which is the best?? Well they are all excellent so choose one and just enjoy. I am going to add another cookie to the mix. This is a rich chocolate cookie with tiny Reese's Peanut Butter Cups added. And they are delicious.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons water
1 bag of Reese's Minis Peanut Butter Cups (8 ounces)
Mix together flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda--set aside. In the bowl of a mixer mix together melted butter  peanut butter and sugars until light. Add egg, vanilla,  water and mix together. Slowly add flour mixture. Add about 3/4 of the Mini's (I gave them a rough chop). Batter will be thick. Using a medium Pampered Chef Scoop, scoop  dough on a parchment lined sheet. Slightly flatten cookie and top with 1 or 2 Peanut Butter Mini's. Bake at 375 for 7-8 minutes or until cookie is set, do not over bake.
Cool cookie and enjoy with a tall glass of cold milk.
