Fall Cookie Week Recipes:
Fall Cookie Week 2018 will be returning next weeks on Monday, September 24th. In the meantime, these Stuffed Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are a blast from the past and one of my favorite fall cookie recipes recipes! What’s not to love?
How to make Stuffed Peanut Butter Cup Cookies:
I decided to share another of my favorite cookies to end this cookie week. I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate.
And with these particular cookies, the chocolate drizzled all over the top is literally and figuratively the icing on the cake … er … cookie.
As with most of the cookies this week, these come together quite quickly. It’s basically just a peanut butter cookie recipe.
I love all of the unique touches to this cookie as well – the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup tucked away inside and the glorious drizzle of chocolate on the top.
It just looks like a cookie you want to eat.
If you want to make these cookies, I’ve shared the full recipe at the end of this post.

Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe:
Who wouldn't love a cookie stuffed with a peanut butter cup? Combining two flavors I love, these Stuffed Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are one of my favorite treats!
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 package Miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups unwrapped
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon shortening
In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until light
and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
In a smaller bowl, combine flour and baking soda.
Gradually add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
Roll dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Press a miniature peanut butter cup into
each; reshape balls.
Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
For drizzle,melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and shortening in a microwave (or in a double boiler). Stir until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cookies. (I allowed my mixture to cool slightly and then put it into a Ziploc bag. I snipped off a tiny portion of the corner of the bag so I could drizzle the cookies.)
