One of things that I promised to re-learn this year is to bake. So I thought of using one of the products we sell in dudeygoodies: Reese's Peanut Butter Spread. I love the creaminess of this spread, it isn't too sugary like other peanut butter spreads, so it can really be used for cookies. This recipe was inspired from a recipe I found online.
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Spread
1. Preheat oven to 350F (or 177C)
2. Combine all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
3. In a separate bowl, combine butter, 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. Mix well. Add eggs and vanilla.
4. Add the flour mixture into the second bowl and mix well. Add the chocolate chips.
5. Chill the dough until firm (45 minutes to 1 hour).
6. In a separate bowl, mix 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Spread.
7. Roll half-tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball. Slightly flatten the dough and make a "dimple" in the center. Put 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture in the center. Roll another half-tablespoon of cookie dough, flatten slightly, then place on top of the peanut butter-filled dough.
8. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
9. Remove cookies from the oven. Let it cool for 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy! :)
This recipe can produce up to 2 dozen of regular-sized cookies or 1 dozen huge cookies.
