Peanut Butter cup cookies

Updated on August 2, 2012

Delicious spin off the classic peanut butter kiss cookie

Who doesn't love a warm goey cookie right out of the oven? These chocolate, peanut butter crowd pleasers are easy to make and perfect for getting your kids involved in the kitchen.

Cook Time

Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: approximately 5 dozen


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, slightly softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Aprox. 2 bags Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt with a wire whisk and set aside.
  3. Beat butter and peanut butter in an electric mixer until smooth.
  4. Add the sugar and beat until fluffy
  5. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  6. Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
  7. Roll dough into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls and then roll the balls in sugar to coat.
  8. Press rolled balls into the cavities of a mini muffin tray. Note: You can bake these in mini muffin papers or directly in the pan.
  9. Place an unwrapped Reese's peanut butter cup into each dough ball.
  10. Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  11. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool.
  12. (Optional) If your family is made up of choco-holics like mine is you can drizzle your baked and cooled cookies with chocolate. I had a few Hershey Kisses on hand so I melted them in a plastic ziplock bag, snipped off the corner and piped a drizzle over the top. You could also use Chocolate chips or any other meltable chocolate you have lying around the kitchen. Again this step is completely optional.
  13. Pop the cookies out of the muffin tray, dish them up and enjoy!

      Easier by far but probably not nearly as tasty!

      These are also great using a boxed brownie mix instead of the cookie dough!
