Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

These are one of my favorite cookies to make for any occasion and especially for the holidays.  During the holidays we are all crammed for time and these cookies are so quick that they will leave you with plenty of time for shopping, wrapping and partying! They are so quick and simple, yet they look a little bit more sophisticated than your typical drop cookies. Also, and most importantly, they are delicious especially if you are a peanut butter fan like myself!

Happy Holidays and Happy Baking!



1 pouch Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix

1 egg

2 tablespoons water

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

24 mini Reese’s peanut butter cups



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare cookie mix as directed on package.


Form dough into small balls and push into mini muffin pan.

(The dough balls shouldn’t completely fill the cups because they will puff up in the oven.)


Bake for about 8-10 minutes until edges are golden brown.

(The centers may look a bit sunken but that is ok!)


While cookies are in the oven, unwrap your peanut butter cups.

Immediately after pulling cookies out of the oven,

push one peanut butter cup into each cookie’s center.



Let cool and then remove from mini muffin tin.

(the cookies should pop out of the tin super easily-the best!)
