Best Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

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. Sometimes I write about treats that we made a long time ago, and this recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Cookies is one of them. We made these at the beginning of the year. I don’t remember making them, but I DO remember that they were YUMMY!!

We love Reese’s at our house, so these Peanut Butter Cup Cookies were a HIT! The cookie part tastes sooo good, and they turned out nice and chewy. My favorite part of making these cookies was putting the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in the middle once they came out of the oven. I bet your kids would have fun making these cookies with you too! If you like Reese’s and cookies, then you’ll love this recipe.

    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. :/
