Triple Peanut Butter Cookies #SundaySupper


      I just love a party!  Any excuse to get everyone together and have a good meal is a perfect one for me.  This time of year it is especially fun to have all of our friends and family over.  We love playing yard games and chasing little ones around outside.  We are able to invite so many more people and still have plenty of elbow room.  Plus, I love the casual nature of a good outdoor BBQ.  So I can't wait to see what everyone is sharing this week for Sunday Supper.  What a fun theme, picked by T.R. Crumbley from Gluten Free Crumbley.


    For big parties, I tend to like to plan the whole menu.  Now that the weather has warmed up though, we are much more likely to throw out a last minute invite.  Then it is fun to throw some meat on the grill and invite our guests to each bring a side.  I enjoy seeing what people think to bring and it takes a lot of the pressure off.  Another great bonus is picky eaters have the chance to bring something they know they will like.

    Of course we love getting invited to pot lucks too!  My brain automatically goes to cookies.  They are perfect for so many reasons.  First... they are cookies!  I mean, really.  That should be enough.  Second, they are good at any temperature.  No worries about keeping something hot or cold.  Woohoo, that's a load off, right?  Thirdly, they are so easy to grab on the go between games of bags and washers.  I'm sure I could keep going, but I think I've already made my case! ;-)


     I was in the mood for some big peanut buttery cookies.  I wanted them to be FULL of peanut butter.  So I made peanut butter dough, but that wasn't enough.  I needed more!  So I stirred in some peanut butter chips.  But there needed to be more!  Some Mini-Reese's Pieces filled the void.   Then I scooped out big rounded balls of dough and made perfectly large cookies.  I made a few regular sized ones too, in case we had people who couldn't commit to a big one.


      I whipped up a triple batch.  I served some at Jax's birthday party and froze the rest to share with my coworkers.  Some people at the party did try to use portion control and picked a small cookie, I think every single one of them went back for a second cookie.  I brought a gallon bag packed full of cookies to work and I think they were gone in  hours!  So, I would say they were a hit.  They would be a perfect item to bring to your next potluck!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour

  4. Combine flour, baking soda and salt and add to peanut butter mixture, stirring until incorporated.
  5. Add peanut butter chips and candies and stir until evenly distributed.
  6. Scoop onto baking sheet, leaving plenty of room for spreading.  (At least a couple of inches on all sides for large cookies, a little less for smaller cookies.)  Bake 3T cookies for 15 minutes or 1 T cookies for 10.
  7. Cool on baking sheet for about 3 minutes and then move to wire rack to cool completely.

  7. Hi Carlee, I am so gutted we don't get peanut butter chips or Reeses pieces here, or anything like them. If ever I come across something similar, I'd certainly try them.
