Good Lord these cookies were sent straight from Heaven (via Dorothy at Crazy for Crust, obviously)! I saw Dorothy’s overloaded peanut butter cookies the other day, which, she claimed, “are the best peanut butter cookies ever.” Well you know I had to try them (that very night)!
It was a miracle that I made any cookies at all given the obscene quantity of dough I ate. Oops.
My addition of milk chocolate chips to this rich peanut butter batter makes them taste just like Reese’s Peanut butter cups. But not just any Reese’s cups. No, no. Those ones that they sell right before holidays that have triple the peanut butter and the same amount of chocolate. You know like the ones in the shape of Easter eggs! Those are my favorite.
Which could be one reason that I could not stop eating these Peanut Butter Cup Cookies. Could. Not. Stop.
Under pressure from the Wedding Fairy I reluctantly gave some away and then put the rest in the freezer.
Yeah, the freezer was no deterrent. None whatsoever. They taste delicious frozen. And thawed from frozen.
The last remaining crumb just disappeared. And you know how I feel? Disappointed!
How can you resist that?
You must be stronger than I.
Oh, and they’re ridiculously easy. Ridiculously. Dorothy says a child can do it. While I was unable the test that theory, I believe it because these are outrageously easy to make!
