ISO: Peanut butter cup cookie recipe
I had this amazing cookie at a bake sale a few months ago and I haven't been able to locate the recipe. Of course, I would ask the baker for the recipe, but since it was a bake sale, couldn't find the baker.
Anyway, the cookie was a soft peanut butter cookie with a peanut butter cup INSIDE and topped with some melted chocolate. It was delicious.
All the recipes I've found so far are basically peanut butter cookie with a peanut butter cup smashed on top after the cookie bakes. This was definitely not the same.
Many thanks in advance!
I don't think this is what you are looking for, but this makes bars that taste just like peanut butter cups. It's a no bake recipe. The big secret is the graham cracker crumbs which give that gritty texture. My son (who is now 23) has been making these since he was 5, and my kids still ask me to make these at Christmas time.
Peanut Butter Bars
1 cup butter
18 pounce jar peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups confectioners' sugar
12 ounce package semisweet chocolate chips (or other semisweet chocolate)
1. Melt butter and peanut butter together in a saucepan.
2. Combine confectioner's sugar and graham cracker crumbs in a large bowl.
3. Add the melted ingredients to the sugar and crumbs and mix together. It will be stiff.
4. Spread mixture in a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan, or a smaller pan if you want thicker bars. Press firmly.
5. Melt chocolate chips and spread on top.
6. When cool cut into squares. The bars do not have to be refrigerated, but can be to speed cooling. Do not store in refrigerator. Cut into 36 bars or according to taste.
just wanted to say I made these for work and they got rave reviews! I kept a few aside at home and having one every night - I kept them in the fridge as I like them cold and they are great!
Thanks for such an easy recipie, I am going to attempt these as peanut butter balls at christmas time.
I have made these for years...very simple. It is one roll of suger cookie dough (in the refrigerator section) and 1 pkg. of miniature reeses peanut butter cups. You will need a mini muffin tin. Cut and roll sugar cookie dough in a 1 in ball place in a non stick mini muffin tin. Cook for 8 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Remove and push 1 reese cup in the middle place back in oven for 2 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
It seems like you could just take your favorite pb cookie recipe, roll out balls of dough. Flatten one larger than the pb cup, put on the pb cup on it, top w/ another and pinch the edges. It almost sounds like the Pillsbury cookoff winning recipe this year, only w/ a pb cup instead of the pb mix the winner used.
