Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are a mega soft and chewy from scratch peanut butter cookie, baked and then topped with a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup right as they come out of the oven. This cookie is made for all Peanut Butter and Chocolate lovers!
- 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
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.
