Amazing Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

These are honestly one of my favorite cookies of ALL TIME.  I am obsessed with peanut butter and Reese’s peanut butter cups so naturally I have no choice but to be obsessed.  These are some of the best that I have ever tried.  The cookie is perfect and soft and chewy.  The peanut butter cup gets slightly melted when you press them into the cookie.  I love to eat them when they are still slightly warm for an gooey gooey irresistible peanut butter treat!  You are going to love these classic and delicious cookies!

How do You Make Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies?

  1. Preheat Oven to 375. Unwrap the chocolates and have them ready.
  2. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda, set aside.
  3. Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter, and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and milk. Add the flour mixture. Mix well.
  4. Shape into balls and place in ungreased mini muffin pan.
  5. Bake 6-8 minutes (I bake for 6). Remove from oven and immediately press a mini PB cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan.

Tips and tricks for making peanut butter cup cookies:

  • Using a small cookie scoop will help to portion out the cookie dough evenly and quickly.
  • Don’t over-bake the cookies!  I cook mine for about 6 minutes, but you still want them to look pale and not golden brown on the top.
  • If you don’t have a mini muffin pan, you can roll them in balls and place on a regular cookie sheet.  They might just spread a little more on the cookie sheet.
  • You can use other things besides a peanut butter cup in the center.  We have used chocolate kisses, caramels, and Nutella.

Can I freeze these cookies?

Yes you can.  They will freeze in an airtight container for up to three months.  Take them out of the freezer and let them thaw.  A quick zap in the microwave will also help them to soften up.

  1. By 1 teaspoon soda do you mean baking soda? Looks like a really delicious cookie and I believe I’ll try it with Hershey’s Kisses!!
