Triple Peanut Butter Cookies - SRC
Okay, so you probably realize that this is my second post for this month's Secret Recipe Club. But, when I found out earlier tonight that we were going to have an orphan, I just couldn't stand by and do nothing. Especially when it comes to a great blogger like Anna over at her site, Cheese with Noodles.
Do you know that Anna lives in Alaska? I can't imagine how cold it must be there during the wintertime, but I'm sure that her house is nice and cozy as she spends time with her family, crochets, paints, and, of course, cooks delicious food. I would have loved to make her Baked Mice (aka mini meatloaves made in the shape of mice - sooo cute). Her Cinnamon Pancakes with Cream Cheese Icing also looked very tempting. But, unfortunately, I had no milk in the house. Plus, I also wanted to try and get the post up tonight.
So, I decided to go with her Triple Peanut Butter Cookies. Besides, my sister has been begging me to make some cookies so this was a win-win situation. I just happened to have all the ingredients to make them, though as far as the peanut butter cups go, I could only find six mini ones in my pantry. Note to self: keep the pantry stocked with Reeses peanut butter cups. I added some chocolate chips to make up for the difference.
Anna described these cookies as "soft, thick, and super peanut buttery." And, you know what? She was 100% right! You'll need a big glass of milk to go with these. I am so glad that I had the chance to scope out Anna's blog and try her cookies. My sister will thank me. As for me, I say a big thank you to Anna!
Triple Peanut Butter Cookies (from Cheese with Noodles)

Cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Stir in the flour and baking soda until well combined. Mix in the peanut butter chips and peanut butter cups. Form the dough into small balls and bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes (mine took 12 minutes).
