Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Remember my love of muffin tops? HEREHERE AND HERE? Well, guess what? That muffin top pan I used makes beautiful cookies too!
I forgot I made these cookies back in March. We went to visit my parents and peanut butter cookies happen to be my dad’s favorite cookie! Happy Birthday Dad!!

Each cookies is packed with peanut butter and peanut butter morsels. Then topped with one chopped mini peanut butter cup! One of the perks of being a food blogger? Eating the props! Especially that big bowl of peanut butter!

    they look great! Interesting that you use a Crisco/Butter combo. I need to try that to get the best of both worlds…along with my peanut butter!

    I always love a good peanut butter treat, but recently all I want is a sweet, salty crunchy peanut butter yum. To be honest, I would love to put some of your peanut butter cup cookies with a scoop of peanut butter and vanilla ice cream in a blender and make a milkshake out of them. whoa…did I say that out loud? Great recipe 😉

      Not all my older recipes have the print option yet (working on getting that fixed!) For now, you would have to copy/paste the recipe. Sorry!!

    What is a muffin top pan and where do I buy one?

    • posted Jun 23, 2014 at 8:54 am

      It looks like a whoopie pie pan. You can find them at Michael’s or online too. Sometimes TJMaxx, Meijer and Walmart carry these….
