I asked my husband to hunt the grocery store aisles the day after Halloween. His mission? To find cheap candy that I could make into Christmas cookies and for other holiday treats last year. I probably had a full 55-gallon trash can full of candies. Maybe more. 🙂

I tried Baby Ruth Cookies, Butterfinger Candy Bar Cookies and these delicious Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies. I made them for our annual Christmas Cookie Extravaganza 2019. We baked 5,800+ cookies and finished around the first week in December. It is finally January and I’m just now getting over all that holiday baking! We were exhausted baking that many cookies in about two weeks time.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies turned out to be some of our favorites. The texture was really wonderful. I had to try a few times to get it right. The candies have so much oil from the peanut butter and the chocolate that I had to work to get the consistency correct.

Even so, these cookies we’re a real winner with everyone. They’re also delicious treats for tailgating parties, potlucks or Christmas Cookie Exchanges. Not to mention, being a great way to use up leftover Halloween candy. 🙂

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chopped miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes or until done. Rotate cookie sheets on racks every six minutes while baking. My cookies took between 18-20 minutes to cook completely.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  3. In large bowl, combine butter, sugars, vanilla, eggs, salt and baking soda.
  4. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  5. Stir in flour and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with a wooden spoon until combined.
  6. Roll dough into balls and place on prepared cookie sheets.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees, or until lightly browned.
  8. Rotate cookies on racks every six minutes through cooking time.
  9. Let cookies cool in pan for 5 minutes.
  10. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: These are also good baked as brownies. Spread into a 10x15” cookie sheet and bake about 30 minutes at 350°.

NOTE: Use the least amount of flour possible to allow the cookies to spread, but not overspread. The Reese’s Cups have a lot of oil/butter from the chocolate and peanut butter causing the consistency of the cookies to have a lot of oil. That’s why this recipe has more flour than usual.

NOTE: I was baking three racks at a time. I rotated pans every 6 minutes. My cookies took 18 minutes to bake.
