Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:14 minutes
Total Time:34 minutes
1 1/2 cups All Purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup peanut butter candies
1 cup mini peanut butter cups, cut into quarters
hand or stand mixer
cookie scoop or large spoon
wire cooling rack
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, place the softened butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar and mix on medium 1-2 minutes, or until the butter is pale and fluffy and fully combined.
Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined, then mix in the peanut butter for another 30 seconds – 1 minute.
Gently add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in the peanut butter candies and mini peanut butter cups.
Scoop out large rounded spoonfuls of dough using a cookie scoop or large spoon. Roll the dough into a ball and place on the prepared sheet pan 2 inches apart.
Bake 12-14 minutes, or until the edges are golden and dry. Transfer to a wire rack and cool 10 minutes before serving.
Pro-tip: the peanut butter cups melt while baking. I saved a few leftover peanut butter cups and gently pressed them into the tops of the baked cookies shortly after they came out of the oven.
