Triple Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Ingredients:


2 ½ cups of unsifted flour 
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of butter (2 sticks), softened
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 ½ tsp vanilla
2 eggs
15 ounces (5 ounces each) milk, semi sweet and dark chocolate chips (Ghirardelli are best)
24 mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, cut in half


Directions:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Set aside. Beat sugars with butter until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs (one at a time). Mix on low speed until incorporated. Gradually add dry mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and drop on an ungreased baking sheet lined with parchment paper using an ice cream scooper. Will make large cookies, so spread them out to about 5-6 per cookie sheet. Place half of a peanut butter cup in the center and roll the sided up around it. Bake for approximately 12-14 minutes.
