Peanut Butter Cup Skillet Cookie
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks, softened
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups chopped peanut butter cups
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 10- or 12-inch cast iron skillet.
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer (or in a stand mixer), beat the butter, light brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the vanilla and the peanut butter. Gradually add the flour mixture and beat just until combined. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the peanut butter cups.
Spread the batter into the prepared skillet. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of peanut butter cups. Bake until the edges are puffed and set and the center is still a little soft and underbaked, about 35 minutes.
