My Favorite Peanut Butter Recipe

It's teacher appreciation week. Boy did that come fast this year. Each year our school hosts a lunch for all the teachers. They love it. Every year I make my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe, as it turns out they love it too. They are Peanut Butter Cup Cookies.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 egg beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbs. milk
1 bag or so of Reese's peanut butter cups

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside. Cream butter, sugars, peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla, and milk. Add dry ingredients and mix well. It will be a soft, creamy consistency.

Using a melon baller or hands, shape into balls and put into mini-muffin tin, ungreased. Bake for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press peanut butter cups into the center of each cookie. Cool completely before removing from muffin tins.

What is your favorite cookie? And what do you do for your teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week?

Snickerdoodles or gingersnaps. I couldn't eat just one or two or three of those reese's cookies, those things are addictive. There would be none left to share.
