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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
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.
Add the egg and beat until incorporated then add in the milk and vanilla extract.
In batches, add in the dry ingredients and beat until just incorporated.
Using a spatula, fold in the chopped Reese's peanut butter cups.
Using a medium cookie scoop (or 2 tablespoons), drop dough onto prepared cookie sheets then bake for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will look slightly underdone and soft but will firm up while cooling.
