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!
