Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Good Morning Lovelies! I am a peanut butter addict. On toast, in my oatmeal and most importantly in cookie form! Sharing my super duper peanut butter cup cookie recipe today. Peanut butter + mini peanut butter cups = one amazingly awesome cookie.


1 stick of softened butter

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup of granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

1 3/4 cup of flour

1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1 cup of smooth peanut butter

12 oz of mini peanut butter cups for baking {I love the Trader Joe tiny PB cups}

yields approximately 24 cookies


1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2 – Add the butter, brown sugar & granulated sugar to your mixer. Using the paddle attachment whip the ingredients until fluffy {approx. 2 minutes on medium}. Be sure to stop and scrape down the sides.

3 – Stop mixer and add egg and vanilla and continue to beat mixture for another 2 minutes.

4 – Stop mixer and add 1 cup of peanut butter then mix until well blended.

5 – Turn mixer to lowest setting and add flour, baking soda and salt.

7 – Once mixture looks like it is coming together add the mini peanut butter cups to the mixture. Tip: Add very soon after you add the flour mixture.

6 – Scoop mixture using a small to medium size cookie scoop on to parchment paper. It is okay if the cookies appear to be like little ice cream scoops.

7 – Bake for 12-14 minutes {one cookie sheet at a time, in the center rack}.

8 – Pour yourself a glass of milk because these cookies are peanut buttery!


Make sure to mix the flour, baking soda and salt together before you add it to your peanut butter, egg mixture.

My oven tends to cook them faster, so I cook them for 12 minutes.

If you wanted it extra chocolaty add some chocolate chips to it, makes a delicious cookie even better.

Happy Baking!
