Peanut Butter Cookies

1 C Butter, softened
1 C Peanut Butter
1 C Granulated Sugar
1 C Packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 1/2 C Flour
Granulated Sugar
2 12oz. Bags of Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures

1. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer for about 30 seconds. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat till combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla till combined. Then add flour and beat in until combined. Preheat Oven. Place dough in fridge for 10 minutes to make it easier to handle.
2. Shape dough into balls, and roll in additional granulated sugar to coat. Place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375º for regular ovens or 350º for convection ovens for 7 to 9 minutes.
3. While the cookies are baking unwrap as many reeses peanut butter cups as there are cookies. Remove cookies from oven lightly push one reeses peanut butter cup (turned upside down) into the center of each cookie, then remove the cookies from the tray and allow to cool on a wire rack.

This recipe makes about 60 cookies....if you don't want that many (which I always do-cuz we LOVE them:) You can half the recipe.
