Alice and Andrea’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Contains Gluten

This is just slightly different from Nana’s recipe, and a current favorite with the local crowd. We haven’t tried making bars but presumably that works fine too. The cookie quantities are for large cookies – for smaller cookies reduce baking time.


makes about 2 dozen  cookies

  • 1 stick ( ½ c) butter
  • ¾ c white sugar
  • ¾ c brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 ¼ c flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 small container mini peanut butter cups from Mollie Stone’s


  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  2. Place butter in large bowl and melt in microwave.
  3. Beat in both sugars.
  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla until blended.
  5. In separate bowl, stir together flour, soda and salt with a fork or whisk to make sure soda and salt are well distributed.
  6. Add dry ingredients to wet and stir with wooden spoon until flour is all mixed in. Dough will be very stiff.
  7. Stir in mini peanut butter cups.
  8. Roll dough into 1 ½” balls and place 2″ apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  9. Bake at  350 °F for 11 minutes. Better to undercook than overcook.  Let cool 10 minutes on cookie sheet, then move gently to rack.
