Recipe by Heather
"These cookies are very peanut butter-y, with a mini peanut butter cup in the center. (The kind with the cookie center is great in this recipe!) My mom got this recipe from a friend who is allergic to sugar! So this poor soul makes treats and brings them to her friends to let her know if they are good or not."

Since I didn't have muffin pan, I dropped dough on cookie sheet, baked about 8 minutes and pressed peanut butter cup in immediately after removing from oven. Awesome! Thanks for a great recipe.
I found this recipe too powdery in consistency, i suggest making it with a little more milk as it drys out. Although when it is tweaked to your own tastes this recipe is good.....and as i like mine more on the chewy side i find it good to add 1 table spoon (40mls) treacle or golden syrup to the mixture.
My husband loved these cookies. I put instead a peaunut butter filled hersey kiss in the center and baked for a few more minutes to let it melt . Came out very good
These were a big hit in my house!! Not only did my 2 kids LOVE the, but so didn't all of their friends. Soon, I was baking dozens for not only my kids lunches but all of their friends also! Too funny! Try any recipe by "Heather" - they are all fabulous!
I've made a similar recipe many times. The recipe I've used doesn't call for any milk but the main difference is in my recipe the peanut butter cup is put in right after baking. I decided to try this version on a few. I think putting them in after baking works better -- the cookies look my attractive and there's less risk of them falling apart when removing from the cups. I did like the picture of an M&M in the center but was able to do this in the ones I put the peanut butter cup in after baking. The chocolate melts enough to keep the M&M in place. Also, I bake 10 minutes at 350. Anyway, they are very delicious!
I had to make 8 dozen cookies for a cookie exchange over the holidays. I wanted something easy so I chose these. They tasted great and were the biggest hit! You cannot go wring with these!
Very good if you're a big peanut butter fan. Make sure you dont bake these longer than 10minutes or they can get dry...next time i'll probably bake these for 8 or 9 minutes and i may try adding some mini chocolate chips to the batter.
For birthdays my family lets the person pick there favorite desert and that's what we make (well I do). And my brother asked for somthing very peanut buttery. And I ended up making this one. I got rave reviews! Not only did he love it, but the rest of the family and friends loved it too.
I liked them soooo much I kept a tray of them home for my self. And had some for breakfast. MMMMMMM They are great. Thankyou for the recipe
