Double Peanut Butter Cup Cookies Recipe
 
Prep time

Total time
 
Makes 2½-dozen cookies
Ingredients
  • 30 mini peanut butter cups (see notes)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 (15-ounce) container creamy, salted peanut butter
  • coarse sea salt for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, adjust two racks towards the center, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Unwrap the (30) mini peanut butter cups and set aside.
  3. Add the sugar and egg whites to a medium-sized mixing bowl and use a fork to blend the two together. Add the peanut butter and stir until the mixture is very smooth.
  4. Use a 1-inch cookie scoop (or a teaspoon), to add dollops of dough, a few inches apart, on one of the parchment-lined baking sheets.
  5. Gently press 1 mini peanut butter cup onto each dollop of dough -- with enough pressure so that it pushes the dough up around it, but not so much that goes though to the bottom.

  6. Now, using the same 1-inch cookie scoop (or a teaspoon), add another dollop of the dough on top of the peanut butter cup.Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies Recipe -- With sweet, creamy peanut butter, a touch of salt and melting chocolate in every bite, this will be the new favorite cookie for all of the peanut butter & chocolate lovers out there!

  7. Now pick up each bundle and gently roll it between your hands, just until the sides of dough seal themselves and the peanut butter cup is totally hidden. Try to keep track of the peanut butter cup, so that you know when you place the ball down on the baking sheet, either the top or bottom is up -- the candy should not be sideways! Continue until both baking sheets are filled.Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies Recipe -- With sweet, creamy peanut butter, a touch of salt and melting chocolate in every bite, this will be the new favorite cookie for all of the peanut butter & chocolate lovers out there! Trust me.
  8. Sprinkle each one with the coarse sea salt and then bake in the preheated oven for approximately 10 minutes, just until the cookies have flattened out and no longer look wet.
  9. Let them cool on the baking sheet for at least 15 minutes.
  10. If you don't eat them right away, once they have completely cooled, you can store them in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dark place for a few days. (They also freeze very well.)

    OK, I think I have some mini pb cups stashed in the fridge somewhere. Must find them and try this! I am going out on a limb and saying I will like them the way Stephen likes them…solidified. I might have to taste test 4 or 5 to determine exactly, though. 🙂

    Just took a break from doing taxes to check my email, and saw this. OMG! Taxes are going to have to wait. On my way to pick up the Reese’s, ( to dangerous to keep these in my pantry) and can’t wait to bring these in tomorrow for my colleagues.

      That’s fantastic, John! A well deserved tax break, I’m sure. 🙂 Hope you loved them as much as we do!

      It’s my favorite type of gluten free — where there was never meant to be gluten. No substitutions. 🙂 Thank you!

    Woah Nelly! These cookies look like they were sent straight down from heaven. And let me tell you. . .as a splurge I had a peanut butter cookie at Barnes and Noble before class yesterday and that cookie doesn’t even come close to being as amazing as this cookie. Now I’m sad I wasted the calories on it when I could have had this beauty.
