Reviews for Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
"Made these with my son for Christmas. We both said this recipe is a keeper. Everyone who tried them said they were delicious."
"is it necessary to use _Peanut Butter Cups?"
"These are awesome. I've made them several ways. Sometimes I add peanut butter chips, sometimes Reece's pieces, sometimes both. They're awesome either way."
"Five Stars Hands Down. This is a wonderful recipe just tried it today; I would like to add a few tips if anyone is interested. Before you start making the cookies refrigerate your reese cups so they are easier to chop up. Use about 1-1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips that is about 12 ounces and all you need. As well you might want to chop up 8 full size reese cups the extra bit to put on top of the cookies dough before you bake them gives it a nice touch and makes it even more delicious.Another tip I highly recommend is refrigerate your cookie dough for a little over 3 hours this will let you handle the cookie dough better and makes the dough constricted and easier to bake well worth the wait.This batch made me little over 3 dozen cookies if anyone is wondering, I do like a big cookie :)Thanks For the awesome and delicious cookie recipe."
"Holy crap those were the BEST cookies and so easy. I'm a great cook but always struggle with cookies. These were GREAT everyone in the family just went crazy over them!! I think I made them too big and had to cook them an extra couple of minutes but they are fabulous."
"Fabulous! I read all the reviews and decided to make it exactly as the recipe said. Superb! Wouldn't change a thing!"
"Wow! These cookies were easy to make and a HIT with my family and friends!"
"My cookies come out flat and hard around the edges. They're still delicious, but what am I doing wrong?"
"I make these all the time...everyone in my family loves them and requests them constantly!! So good!"
"Delicious. Everyone at work loved them!"
"Awesome! Soft and chewy. I used a tablespoon cookie scoop and got around 4-5 doz"
"Was a rainy day and was craving cookies. I made these and my boyfriend loved them (as did I of course). I will definitely make these again! I did have to divide each ingredient, as we didn't need that many."
"These cookies are fantastic!! The only thing I changed was I increased the flour to 2 1/2 cups and added a few more peanut butter cups."
"Loved how this recipe turned out and I will be making it plenty more times in the future one of my favorite cookie recipes so far."
"These were delicious, but we had to cup the chips down by a lot. Also, we used the new mini peanut butter cups that are on the market now, which eliminates the chopping of the cups!"
"The best cookies I have ever made!! Everyone raves about these cookies. :)"
"This is a new family favorite! I used Hershey's milk chocolate mini kisses instead and used 8 peanut butter cups. Delicious!Occasionally I need an extra 1/4 cup of flour."
"Has anyone made these as bar cookies? What size pan and what bake time did you use?"
"These turned out great! I made them for a big group and everyone loved them, even a few people who aren't usually fond of peanut butter. Definitely try it!"
"These cookies are delicious... I am adding it to my favorites! My daughter, who doesn't like anything peanut butter, really liked them!"
"These cookies are excellent! I followed the recipe to a tee and they turned out great. I got about 5 dozen cookies out of this recipe."
"Wow!! These reviews were right on! I made these cookies and they are so good! They have the perfect balance of chocolate and peanut butter. I did use half shortening and half butter because I like my cookies to be chunky. Just a little note though. I halved the recipe because it said that it made 90 cookies, and I didn't want that many. I only got 26 cookies from half a recipe. And I didn't make them any bigger than in the picture. So for the recored, this recipe does NOT make 7 1/2 dozen cookies. But this recipe is a keeper for sure!"
"Delicious!! Just got done making these and my husband can't stop eating them. They are so moist and flavorful. Definitely will be putting this recipe in my permanent collection!"
"Was VERY happy with the way they came out they were perfect!!! I never thought that these would end up my all time favorite cookie but they did! They are SOOOO delicious!!! I will continue to make these again and again! My co-workers enjoyed them very much also!"
"These are excellent. Slightly crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle. I suggest chopping the peanut butter cups first and then throw them in the freezer while you are making the rest of the dough. I halved the recipe and it still made a good amount."
"I made these for my SS kids this past week and since it made a lot ,I had extra to share w/two other classes and some of the folks at church. EVERYONE loved them and I got rave reviews."
"These are the best! Very easy. I reduced the chocolate chips to 1 cup and will probably reduce to 1/2 cup or omit completely the next time I make these."
"Delicious and I used reduced fat pb"
"Very good, will make over and over!"
"These are great. Everyone asks for the recipe."
"Very easy to make, and VERY good.. Definately will make again!"
"I needed a plain recipe to make p-nut butter cup cookies in mini muffin form. I left out the chips and PB cups. Put the mini PB cups into the mini muffin shaped cookies after they came out of the oven. This recipe tastes just like the Betty Crocker package you buy in the store. Definitely will make again."
"Reduced fat or generic peanutbutter isn't recommended for this recipe"
