Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Big A and I made these for our New Years party. If you can't find mini pb cups, use regular choc chips or crumble up the big pb cups.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2.5 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup mini peanut butter cups (I used President's Choice mini peanut butter melts)

Cream butter and sugar until like and fluffy. Whisk in peanut butter eggs and vanilla until smooth. Stir together dry ingredients and add to wet mixing just until dough comes together. Add pb cups or chips. Roll into balls and flatten with fork on non-stick baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 12 minutes, for slightly softer cookies, and a few minutes longer for crunchier cookies. Makes 36 cookies.
