4 ingredients & 15 minutes is all you need to make these Reese’s peanut butter cup cookies. They’re stuffed with a peanut butter cup, soft & chewy, completely flourless and filled with big peanut butter flavor. Seriously – if you love peanut butter – you’re going to LOVE these!
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They’re probably my favorite candy, and definitely my favorite candy to bake with.
Now, I’ve made my fair share of chocolate & peanut butter desserts, but in the spirit of everything peanut butter – today we’re making Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies. They taste exactly like a peanut butter cup in cookie form. And they’re probably my new favorite cookie recipe for a few reasons:
- They’re flourless peanut butter cookies
- You only need 4 ingredients.
- Well, only 3 ingredients if you don’t count the peanut butter cups
- They take 15 minutes to make
- And they’re stuffed with Reese’s.
Pretty amazing, huh?
Now, at first I was suspicious when I saw recipes for 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies on Pinterest. But it turns out they taste delicious. They have big peanut butter flavor, are soft & chewy – and you only need peanut butter, sugar and an egg to make them.
Then to take these to the next level, I decided to add peanut butter cups – so they become 4 ingredient peanut butter cookies. After the cookies come out of the oven, a miniature Reese’s peanut butter cup is placed on the top each. Similar to peanut butter blossoms – but with an extra dose of peanut butter.
These Reese’s peanut butter cup cookies are the easiest cookies I’ve ever made, and they’re always so quick to disappear. Better yet – I always have peanut butter, sugar and an egg already in my kitchen. So it’s a quick trip to 7-11 (it’s close than the grocery store) for the peanut butter cups and I’m ready to go.
And it’s 15 minutes to peanut butter bliss. Seriously – you’re going to love these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies!
