Today is a VERY special day! It’s the birthday of a very special girl… Our sweet daughter-in-law.
Happy Birthday Colleen McKinney! (Has a nice ring – huh?)
In honor of the first year we get to wish Colleen a happy birthday as our “daughter,” I had to make a special cookie – right?!
So I used my trusty chocolate chip “base” cookie recipe and tweaked it up by switching the chocolate chips for CHUNKS of White Reeses’s Peanut Butter Cups.
They turned out pretty yummy.
Pretty simple recipe that I know by heart:
White Reese Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
1 lb softened butter (YEPPERS – you heard me right – I did say O N E P O U N D – 4 sticks – 2 cups)
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 -/2 cups white sugar
2-3 tsp vanilla (just pour some in)
5 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
Lots of chopped up White Reese Peanut Butter Cups (about 24 oz)
Drop by heaping tablespoons on baking stone, and bake at 375 for 9-11 min.
With a cup of cold milk (traditional style)……..
Or a glass of red wine (Jodi style) …….
Or with a can of room temperature Mountain Dew ( COLLEEN STYLE!)
