Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cookie Cups - a family favorite and SO yummy! Recipe on { lilluna.com }

Hi, it’s me – LILY again!!

I’m having a really good summer. Are you?? Sometimes it seems like summer flies by so fast. Mom told me we only have 6 weeks until school starts. I’m kinda excited for school, but I like summer too. I like school so I can make new friends. AND, this year as a second grader we get to have an upstairs classroom, which is awesome!! 😀

Sometimes I write about treats that we made a long time ago, and this is one of them. We made these at the beginning of the year. I don’t remember making them, but I remember that they were YUMMY!! We love Reese’s at our house, so these Peanut Butter Cookie Cups were a HIT! If you like Reese’s and cookies too (and cups!!), then you’ll love this recipe. 😀

I hope you like these, but it’s a real shame for those that are allergic to peanuts. 🙁

    Hi, I just made these today. They were really crumbly when I tried taking them out of the pans. I let them cool in the pans, but I think they needed to stay in the pans a lot longer than what I had done. The ones I left in the pans the longest did come out better, but still kind of crumbly. Maybe chilling them in the pans next time would work better.

      Hi Julie! I’m sorry you had problems with the cookies. 🙁 We’ve made these several times without issues so I’m trying to think what would cause them to be crumbly. Was your butter softened? That may have played a role. :/
