    I make a basic cookie recipe like the one here or chocolate chip cookies before adding pb cups or the chocolate chips. Roll a small ball, flatten it big enough to hold a York Mint, put another round dough on top, seal really well, bake at regular cookie temp (i use 325) till browned to your liking. I like mine not too dark so it's still soft but done. You don't have to tell people who try one what they are; they look like a regular cookie but wow! what a delight to bite into! Surprise! Learned this while living in Germany!

    Love this recipe. I make them without the mini reese cup and I add chocolate chips instead. Everyone loves them and they are easy to make. It's my go-t0 recipe.

    I roll my Moist peanut butter cup cookie recipe into a small ball..then roll them into the granulated sugar, (or you dont have to) then I put them into miniature cupcake tins that hold 28 cookies at a time... I then press the peanut butter cups into the cookie ball then bake 10 minutes at 350; let cool completely till candy inside is dry and it makes the best peanut butter cup cookies around.. people have loved this recipe of mine fo well over 20 years.

    Definitely for peanut butter lovers! I'm not a huge fan of peanut butter but these are delicious! I did chill the PB cups a few min before I baked them and they came out just like the pic!

    This is a great recipe! everytime I make them people can't beleive how good they are. I don't put the rease peanut butter cup in the center. I just make the cookie. The dough is a little hard to work, but you get used to it after a couple scoops. Yummy brownie like texture!!!
