Peanut butter cups are my favorite and this has now become my favorite cookie recipe! Did this for a church bake & craft sale. Decorated the jar Christmas-y, put it on a tray and surrounded it with baked cookies. Big hit and big seller! Tip: When decorating the jar lid with a fabric piece, cut a square about 2" larger than the lid, secure it with a rubber band, cover the rubber band with ribbon, then trim the fabric. Save yourself the frustration of cutting a fabric circle and then trying to anchor it evenly to the lid with the rubber band! There's a whole population of lost rubber bands living in my kitchen!

These cookies are so YUMMY!!!! I have trouble not eating the whole batch! My kids love to "chop" the peanut butter cups, but in a pinch those new Nestle's PeanutButter and Chocolate chips work too. GREAT RECIPE!!! They also make a great gift if you can get them out the door!

This recipe basically made crumbly balls of Reese's peanut butter cups and flour. I'm positive I followed the directions right. The dough was extremely dry, tasted like flour with a little bit of sugar, and when I finally managed to roll it into balls and bake it, the cookies turned into little rocks. I think something is definitely missing in this recipe.
