Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

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!

  1. How can I print the recipes? I have just found your site and I love it, I am a nut for new recepies. They all sound wonderful. Thanks

    1. 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!!

  2. OMG!!!! these cookies are fantastic….a must try…….Thank you I love peanut butter and chocolate…..reese peanut butter cups are my absolute favorite

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