Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

At Home, Recipes

I can’t believe I don’t have many pictures from this weekend. It seemed to fly by so fast because it was packed with a mixture of getting Christmas things done and playing and having fun.

Friday night we had Addie while Cindy and Tom went out. We watched a little Mickey’s Christmas with the girls after our pizza party with the girls.



Then Saturday I worked out at my parents and we got stuff done in the morning. Pretty soon it was time for us to drop Anna off at Cindy and Tom’s for them to watch her while we went out. She was excited to have a partial sleepover at Addies.

After dropping Anna off, we had to battle this to get to Erika’s apartment for drinks and appetizers.


The highway was similar to driving down a pasture with hundreds of other cars looking for lanes as well. 1.5 hours later, we arrived at our destination that should have taken about 25-30 minutes. Oh Cleveland.

Luckily the snow settled down and we had a fabulous dinner at   Luxe, a trendy Cleveland restaurant. It was great to catch up and share some delicious food!

After picking Anna up, we came and crashed. On Sunday, Cindy, Elizabeth and I had a girls shopping trip. The goal was to find a few gifts and update the wardrobe. Mission accomplished.

Then it was already time for Sunday night dinner at my parents with everyone. Hard to believe it’s the weekend before Christmas.

Good news is, you still have time to make these.


Who wouldn’t like a Reese’s cup lined with a layer of moist peanut butter cookie?


It’s an old and classic recipe that we also stick Hersey’s kisses in and it never disappoints.

  • 1/2 c. margerine
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix together with a beater. Once this is creamed,


  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Mix together until combined.

Roll into small balls and place in a mini muffin tin (with cup liners if you prefer).

Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes or until cookie is about done.

REmove from oven and immediately press peanut butter cup into the center.

Let cookies and cups cool before removing from pan.


I have a great salad idea from my Luxe experience coming your way! Have a great day!
