Yesterday, we went to the vet for Winston’s second post-op appointment. He got radiographs taken to see how he’s healing and to give a better prognosis of when they think he will be fully healed and ready to be a puppy again. We were both really nervous about this appointment because since surgery, we had been keeping him on a strict activity confinement and doing everything possible to control his little puppy energy and spurts. Thankfully, results showed he’s healing perfectly AND the doctor said that we will have another set of radiographs taken in 3 weeks and she thinks that he will be good to go at that point. WHAT A RELIEF! They initially told us before and after surgery that recovery time was 12-16 weeks. We were like good lord, how are we going to do this for 12-16 weeks?! His physical therapist said since he’s a puppy, it’s probably going to be 8 weeks…but now with the radiographs, it seems like he’s going to be healed in 6 weeks! Best news we’ve had in a while!

Time to celebrate the good news with these peanut butter overload cookies :) if you’re any sort of peanut butter and Reese’s fan, you will absolutely need to add these cookies to your baking list – maybe even for this weekend?

There is nothing better than a warm, soft, gooey cookie straight out of the oven. These peanut butter overload cookies are exactly what the name means. Overloaded with peanut butter! The dough itself is a peanut butter base and I threw in a bunch of chopped up Reese’s cup for even more peanut butter (and chocolate!) goodness! They’re so soft and irresistible! Even after 5 days, these cookies were still super soft. How can you resist a cookie that is studded with Reese’s peanut butter cups? Exactly. You can’t!

Peanut butter overload cookies are a peanut butter lovers' dream! 

Servings: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup creamy/smooth peanut butter, do not use natural peanut butter. you will need to use something like JIF or Skippy
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cups chopped Reese's peanut butter cups
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer), cream together butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and dark brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the egg and beat until incorporated then add in the milk and vanilla extract.

    Hands-down these are the best cookies I’ve ever made!! The recipe was easy to follow, and I used the Reese’s Mini Cups. They lasted for about a day, and my kids and husband fought over the last 2 cookies. Delicious!!!!
