Prep - Preheat the oven to 375.
Cream the butter - In a large bowl or stand mixer, combine the peanut butter and butter until creamy and smooth.

Shape the cookies - Scoop tablespoons sized balls of dough onto a cookie sheet and use a fork to make a crisscross pattern on each cookie, flattening the doughs of ball into a cookie shape.

Serve - Let the cookies rest for a bit, serve, and enjoy.
Common Questions About Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
How can I make my cookies more symmetrical after they spread from cooking?
Depending on your cookie recipe, your cookies will spread some while in the oven. An easy way to ensure you have perfectly circular cookies is to use a biscuit cutter or small glass and swirl it around your cookie while it is still warm. This will create perfectly round cookies every time!
What other additives can I use instead of chocolate chips?
White chocolate chips are a great substitute and the flavor pairs wonderfully with the richness of the peanut butter. You can also try toffee bits, or try replacing the Reese’s with a piece of Snickers bar.
How do I make my cookies more chewy?
Butter and brown sugar are the biggest contributors to cookie softness. This is because of the moisture contained in these two ingredients. Another way to make a cookie more chewy is to use a quicker cook time at a higher temperature. This will not only cut down on the time you have to wait for your cookies, it will also help prevent moisture in the cookie from evaporating.
Can I make these cookies gluten free?
There is a wide range of gluten free flours. You can use any of these in place of white all purpose flour. Luckily, all of the other ingredients in this recipe are gluten free, so it is an easy conversion!
