Easy Peanut Butter Cup Cookies (No Flour, No Butter Cookies)

Here is the easiest Peanut Butter Cookies you will ever bake! The peanut butter dough is simple.  No flour or butter - only a few ingredients. 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

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

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 on middle rack of oven. *Do not over bake - they can burn easily. Remove, allow to cool. Enjoy!

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! 

Optional- If you make Peanut Butter cookies without the PB cups, you can add 1/2 tsp of vanilla.

Thanks for stopping by!
