Peanut Butter Suprise

This recipe was given to me by my sister in law Vanessa. She is the dessert master! These cookies are so yummy. Unlike my other Reese's cup cookies, these aren't chocolate based, so not AS rich... which means you can eat A LOT OF THESE IN ONE SITTING!!! Thanks for the recipe Vanessa (and all the extra calories you have given me) Be aware.. these are addicting to make and eat.

1 cup butter
1cup crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups coarsely chopped peanut butter cups

Preheat overn to 350 degrees. Cream 6 ingredients until fluffy. Sift dry ingredients together. Gradually stir dry ingredients into creamed mixture. Stir in chopped peaunut butter cups. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from sheets and cool on wire racks. makes 5 dozen cookies.
