These are as big as your face!

Last week I made a batch of these delicious and ginormous cookies! They are so big the recipe said it would only make nine but I guess I did them even bigger than they should have because my recipe only made six! They turned out so good and were so fun to make that I doubled the batch to make more. Travis and I are very content in the sugar and peanut butter department.

Because these are infact so tasty I thought I'd share the recipe with those who are interested. Enjoy! This here is the top of just one cookie! :) Giant Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup cream or crunchy peanut butter
1 egg
1//2 t. vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
16 Reese's peanut butter cups miniatures, cut into fourths-I put mine in the fridge for a little while before I started cutting so that the peanut butter wasn't too soft- otherwise it was so soft that all the peanut butter squooshed out.
1. Heat oven to 350
2. Beat butter, sugar, and peanut butter in a medium bowl until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture; blend well. Drop dough by lelvel 1/4 cup measurements onto ungreased cookie sheets, three cookies per sheet (cookies will spread while baking). Push about seven pieces of peanut butter cups into each cookie, flattening cookie slightly.
3. Baking 15-17 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Centers will be pale and slightly soft. Cook 1 minute on cookie sheet. Remove to wire rack; cook completely. Makes 9 cookies.
