Easy Peanut Butter Cup Cookies


The easiest Peanut Butter Cookies you will ever bake!
The peanut butter dough is simple. 
No flour or butter!  Oh so good.
    
I baked these Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies 
for Santa on Christmas Eve last year...
He LOVED them!



Easy Peanut Butter Cup Cookies Recipe:

Ingredients
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg


Optional 
Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  
Cream peanut butter, sugar and egg together.  If you want mini chocolate chips, add them after you cream the first three ingredients.  Take a spoonful of dough, form into a ball, place a peanut butter cup in the middle, cover PB cup completely.  Place on cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-10 mins.  Do not over bake. 


I've seen the recipe several times over the years.  One was just for peanut butter cookies, another was for Reese's Peanut Butter Cup cookies.  If you want just a simple peanut butter cookie, skip the peanut butter cups and chocolate chips.  If you prefer chocolate chip peanut butter cookies, skip the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.   Have fun with this easy recipe! Our house likes the peanut butter cups and mini chocolate chips!  Yum!
