Reviews for Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
"Great cookies and makes a big batch."
"These were a big hit with the family. I baked them for 9 minutes and this was a perfect time. It made about 5 1/2'dozen cookies for me using a cookie baller from Pampered Chef."
"These cookies are amazing!"
"These went over very well here - we all love chocolate and peanut butter and they went pretty fast!"
"I just got the magazine the other day and needed to make some cookies for new neighbors that just moved in. I took a chance and made these. Wow! What a hit! They will be moved into the new family favorites list. I added a little more flour, but my elevation is around 4500. I also had the small peanut butter cups on hand, so I just chopped a bunch. I ended up getting about 5 1/2 dozen cookies from the single batch. It is also worth it to use Guittard milk chocolate chips! The best!"
