Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

A few weeks ago my husband came home and told me one of his coworkers had made cookies using the new mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. You know, the ones that are little, and don’t even have wrappers on them? They are super yummy.  And my husband wanted me to make some just like them.
Here’s the recipe:
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 bag of Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cookies
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Beat butter with a mixer until creamy, add brown sugar and beat until smooth.  Add eggs, yolk and vanilla, and beat until smooth.
Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a medium bowl and stir together. 
Add flour to butter mixture and mix until combined. Stir in mini peanut butter cups.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, then enjoy!

I made these last night, followed your instructions exactly, and they came out flat. Now they did still taste delicious, but I'm unsure why they didn't rise. I am going to try another batch.

Hi anonymous! Not sure why they didn't rise, maybe try letting the dough firm up in the refrigerator for a little bit before baking? It might help. Hope you still liked them!
