Mini Reese’s Cookies

chocolate, dessert 0 Comments

I made these for a friend who loves Peanut Butter Cookies.  I thought, why not spike them up a bit, because who doesn’t love chocolate peanut butter cups!?.
I found Mini Mini Peanut Butter Cups in the Whole Foods bulk aisle.  You can also buy them here.

I adapted the Cookie Recipe From Joy The Baker

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 baking powder
1/4 salt
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup light brown sugar (lightly packed)
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups mini peanut butter cups
Raw sugar to sprinkle

Divide Racks in the top and bottom thirds of oven
Preheat to 350
Whisk together the dry ingredients
Beat the butter on medium for a couple of minutes until nice and smooth
Add the peanut butter, continue beating until nice and smooth
Add the Sugar and continue mixing well
Add the eggs one at a time
With a spatula scrape down the mixture to the center of the bowl
While mixer is on med speed, slowly add the dry ingredients
Don’t over mix
Stir in the mini peanut butter cups

Roll the dough into Tablespoon size balls
Drop on cookie sheet, leaving them 2 inches apart
Sprinkle with raw sugar
Put 2 cookie sheets in the oven and bake for 12 minutes, rotating them halfway through
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack
Be sure to cool the baking sheets between batches.  A trick to cool a baking sheet quickily is by running the backside under cold water.
