Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp butter softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 36 reese's thins

Instructions

  • With a mixer, cream together the peanut butter, butter, white sugar and brown sugar until blended.
  • Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Add flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture and mix together. Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough and roll into balls.
  • Place cookies 2 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375. Don’t overcook! These cookies are much better soft and just barely cooked all the way through. I baked the cookies scooped with the medium 1.5 TBSP scoop for 8 minutes and the 3 TBSP cookies for 10 minutes.
  • Immediatly after removing the cookies from the oven, gently press a Reese's Thins Peanut Butter cup into the center of each cookie. Allow the cookies to cool and the chocolate to set up before serving.
