I've made this recipe but from another site. I have found it helpful to refrigerate the peanut butter cups before pushing them into the baked peanut butter cookie.

These are so good! This is one of my favorite cookies. They taste great and disappear quickly every time. It's hard to beat the combination of chocolate and peanut butter!

You can never go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. The hardest part of this recipe is unwrapping all the peanut butter cups. So simple, so tasty.

I make these a couple of times of year, one being at Christmas. They are excellent. Very simple to make. I, too, like that you make your own dough, not store bought. If the dough was store bought, I probably would not make them. A hint that might be useful---you should IMMEDIATELY press the peanut butter cup into the cookie. I make it a point to have all the peanut butter cups unwrapped and waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven. One time I used a caramel cup chocolate candy and they were just as good.

I tried these using my own peanut butter cookie recipe which is very similar to this one. Now I'm making these for our son's graduation party! Very tasty, big hit with the kids.

I made these last night, they are a family favorite. My husband's mom always makes a variation of these at christmas time. I love that these do not use a store bought dough (who needs the extra cost and processed ingredients when the recipe barely takes any time to put these together). The recipe does cut in half nicely as well. I used my size 60 scoop and they turned out perfect.

These are delicious. I used my teaspoon scoop and it made 6 dozen!11/8/14 - I want to apologize for misleading, and correct my review. These treats are delicious. However, I made the dough ahead of time and baked a week later. The reason I got six dozen was because I doubled the recipe.
