Ingredients for Reeses Cookies
How to make our Easy Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Like all good cookie recipes, this one starts with a wet mix and a dry mix. We’ll start with the dry ingredients: in a large mixing bowl, briefly whisk together your flour, baking soda, and salt.
Like that, our dry ingredients are ready! With those settled, let’s get started on the wet mix. First, drop your softened butter into a separate mixing bowl. Use something like a hand or stand mixer to quickly beat that to a creamy consistency.
With that nice and creamy, we can now add in both of our sugars. Mix them in until fully combined.
Now goes the egg and the vanilla…
Finally, we add in our peanut butter. Beat all of those together until the whole mixture becomes fluffy.
With those wet ingredients all mixed together, we can start gradually adding our dry stuff. Add your dry ingredients, a hefty dash at a time, until you get a nice, well-blended cookie dough. Once that dough is all mixed together, start forming it into 1-inch balls before dropping into the cups of a small muffin pan. Mini-sized pan works best here.
These dough balls are going to go into a 350 degree oven to bake for a little bit. We want them to puff up a little and turn a delicious-looking light brown. That’ll probably take around 11-12 minutes.
Once your cookies are nice and browned, pull them from the oven. While the cookies are still warm, unwrap your Reese miniatures and start pressing them into the centers of your cookies. Let your cookies cool completely in the muffin pan before removing and enjoying!
