uninstall your printer driver then reinstall also check the printer properties by going to start settings printers then right click on the printer go to the page option make sure it is set for book printing then in your application go to file and print then click on properties then select page tab and select book printing there two   if you do not have the option it is one of two things  

your application does not support it
your printer driver is corrupt or does not support it

IF the printer software supports it you can go to start settings printers right click on the printer and select properties then go to the paper tab and select book for printing options and hit ok then go ahead and print..

Another way would be through your application by going to file then print then click on properties and go to the paper tab and change the two sided printing option from none to book

The procedure mentioned by  briancassin of selecting the "printing book" option is correct. and works ok. If you did it once but don't have this option available anymore, it is possible that you are having problems with the printer driver. If it is so, Try to reinstal the printer driver, but don't use the driver from the windows, use the disks that come with the printer, or download the uptodate vertion from hp.com. I have seen  similar problems some times  and the reason was that the windows driver didn't have the same features of the original hp driver.
Just one more thing, every time that you choose to use the "printing book" option on the paper tab of the printing dialog box. Be sure NOT to select  "odd pages" or "even pages" that appears in the printing dialog box of some softwares (ig. Acrobat Reader)  in this case you should check the "both pages" option, and then go inside the printer properties button and check "printing book".
