Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies


Friday night was girlfriends night at our church. We had dinner and movie. Italian food and Return to Me! Mini Driver and David Decovney. Love this movie....I think I need to add it to my side bar... any way... I digress! Back to the point... I was supposed to decorate a table and take a dessert. I also had to go straight from work. Well, as I usually do... I ran out of time. I had to get up a 4:00am and bake a dessert. These cookies are my fool proof, fall back on, can't mess up, everyone loves cookies. So I thought that I would share it with you.

oooooo....more coffee, please!
Prepare ingredients as directed on back of mix package.

Shape in to even sized balls and bake in a mini muffin tin. ( ungreased )
Just until they are barely golden brown.

While they are baking unwrap 24 of the peanut butter cups. While the cookies are warm and gooey in the tin, push the peanut butter cups into the cookies. Remove from tin before they are completely cool.

Sorry! I didn't take a picture in the pretty little serving dish that I took them in. They were a hit though. So simple and everyone loves them!
I hope you enjoy them too!

Mmmmm...they look great. Peanut butter is my weakness. Well, who am I kidding, when it comes to food I have many weaknesses. Peanut butter is a big one though. lol

Thanks for coming over and checking out my pillow. You should definitely make one. It was pretty easy and fun!

Hi Liz~
The cookies look delicious! And Return To Me is a family favorite around my house. My husband bought the DVD a few years ago and every once in awhile he and the girls and I pop it in. We love the scene where the old guys all dance together!:)

Yum! These look great. I have to confess that I'm a lazy cook and have made these with pre-made dough. I bet these would be waaaay better. Love my coffee, too!

I bet they were a hit! You combined two of my very favorite things in this whole wide world! Cookies, and Reeses Peanut Butter cups! Mmmm.

Please pass me the cookie. Yummmmmmmmm

Cindy said...

Those look so good! I wonder if you could make them with a regular peanut butter cookie recipe from scratch? I may try that!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Mmmmm, those cookies look so yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe; I think I'll try them myself. Have a nice evening.

No fair, Liz! I'm trying to incorporate Weight Watchers back into my life! I'll just have to make these when I know the whole family is around so they can eat the majority of them - they look SOOOO good!... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage
