Reeses peanut butter cookies

Today I’m going to share a yummy recipe for reese’s peanut butter cookies. I have a confession to make first. I used to hate peanut butter cookies. I have always loved peanut butter in general, but there was just something about the cookies I did not like.

A couple years ago my husband requested peanut butter cookies, so I ended up making him some. To my surprise they turned out to be really good! Want to know the secret? I placed reese’s peanut butter cups on top and BAM all the sudden they tasted like a million bucks. Apparently my friends did this all along… so not sure why I was the last one to find out about it.

So anyways, if you haven’t tried them with reese’s peanut butter cups on top… TRY THEM! You will forever be changed to a PB cookie lover! With Valentines right around the corner I picked up reese’s hearts and they turned out super cute and yummy.
