Easy Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Hey there!  Welcome to Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas!


For Day 3 I chose to share the yummiest, easiest cookie recipe that I LOVE!

Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s just not Christmas around here without our family favorite, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies!  They are so easy to make and your kids will love helping!


All you need is a greased mini-muffin pan, 1 package of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures and a roll of Pillsbury Peanut Butter Cookies.

roll the dough

Now, cook on 350 degrees for 7 minutes.

press Reese's down

Once you have pressed a peanut butter cup into each cookie, place in the fridge for about 10 minutes and then remove the cookies from the muffin pan with a knife!

It’s that easySmile

We threw a baby shower for our baby sister last weekend and I made a ton of them for the occasion!  I was so excited to fancy them up on my Shanty Cupcake TowerWinking smile  You can follow the easy tutorial to make your own HERE!

    I must have done something wrong. I followed the recipe exactly and mine fell apart and were under done. Will try again though.

    Be sure to use the miniature wrapped Reese’s and not Reese’s minis which are not wrapped. I used the minis and they did not turn out. They are way too small. Oops! Back to the store for the miniature Reese’s!

    I love these but had problem with them sticking to the tin, I even sprayed with oil

    Those look delicious, and what could be easier? Thanks for sharing!

    Love how these cookies would be so quick to make. I bought the small muffin cup pan many years ago and haven’t used it so this will be a perfect opportunity. Love your stand that you put them on, I may have to try that too. Thanks for your inspiration.

    The one thing that I’ve always hated about the Peanut Butter Blossoms is there wasn’t enough chocolate in the entire cookie (didn’t stop me from gobbling them down tho!) Your method looks PERFECT!! I can’t wait to try them, thanks!

      Not enough chocolate…I have topped mine w/chocolate fudge frosting for parties & they never last long:)

    This sounds delish! And yeah, very very easy. Yum! Will add these ingredients to my own shopping list… and have my son make them! Love that even better. 🙂

    The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are the first cookies to disappear at my sister’s dessert table the past three Christmas Eves. Dee-lic-ious!

    It doesn’t get much easier than that! I’m loving all your projects by the way!
