Peanut Butter Button Cookie Cups


These Peanut Butter Button Cookie Cups are a favorite in our family, especially in Lake Powell! We make a big batch of these cookies every year and then freeze them for our annual trip with the fam. They are always a hit! A chewy peanut butter cookie with a sweet chocolaty center, what could be better?!




Now I'm not trying to discount these pictures, but I do have to admit they were pretty difficult to take! I pulled these beautiful cookies right out of the freezer and placed them on the plate and before I knew it everyone was surrounding me taking them off the plate! I was trying to defend these cookies like they were my babies... It didn't work haha!




My older sister Ellie, was in California on a internship and asked for this recipe but didn't have the mini muffin pans! So she just cooked them in regular muffin pans for 10-12 minutes and then put two mini Reese cups into them (right on top of each other and let them melt) and ta daaa, the same delicious cookies (see above picture).




These cookies disappear fast, so I doubled the recipe for you already, haha! I'm sure you'll love these beauties as much as our family! Happy baking!
