  • cup  peanut butter
  • 1/2  cup + 2 TBSP butter  softened
  • 1/2  cup  white sugar
  • 1/2  cup  brown sugar
  • egg
  • 1/4 cup  milk
  • tsp  vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2  cups  flour
  • 1 tsp  baking powder
  • 1/2  tsp  salt
  • 36 Reese's Thins


  • With a mixer, cream together the peanut butter, butter, white sugar and brown sugar until blended.
  • Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Add flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture and mix together.
  • Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough and roll into balls.
  • Place cookies 2 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheets. 
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375. Don’t overcook! These cookies are much better soft and just barely cooked all the way through. I baked the cookies scooped with the medium 1.5 TBSP scoop for 8 minutes and the 3 TBSP cookies for 10 minutes.
  • Immediatly after removing the cookies from the oven, gently press a Reese's Thins Peanut Butter cup into the center of each cookie. Allow the cookies to cool and the chocolate to set up before serving.
