Summer Nights + Peanut Butter Cookies

I don't think there is anything better than a laid back summer night. Especially a summer night hanging out with family. A few times a year, Fletcher and Matt like to make a fire in our backyard. They let the burn pile stack up, then they find a night to burn it. Ab and I just enjoy the extra sister time, while they enjoy the boy time outside. 
However, not all the boys are old enough to participate in the fire nights. 

 While the boys were outside, we made some peanut butter cookies inside. I made these cookies last week for my Noonday party and we had a little bit of the peanut butter cookie dough to finish off. 
 My taste tester approved!

Peanut Butter Cookies:
*Recipe from Bakerella
1 & 1/2 cups AP Flour
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 egg
2 tsp Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt with a whisk and set aside. Beat softened butter and peanut butter together in the mixer. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Slowly, add in flour mixture. Roll dough into 1-1&1/2 inch balls. Press cookie balls into a mini muffin pan (lining the sides of the muffin cup). Bake for 8-9 minutes. While the cookies are in the oven, unwrap your reese's cups. When the cookies come out of the oven, immediately press reese's cups into center of the cookie. Place in the freezer to harden.
