Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I saw this recipe on a blog, and for the life of me I can't remember whose blog it was. I am offering this apology right up front for not linking to whoever needs to be linked. But I also want to say a huge Thank You, because you obviously know how to make cookies. Whoever you are.

Now that the legalities are out of the way, lets get to the good stuff. Cookies. Reeses Peanut Butter Cup cookies, to be exact. And they taste exactly like the real deal because THEY ARE. No, really. Watch.

Walmart has Reeses Peanut Butter Cups in 8 packs for $1. You'll want $3 worth, for a total of 24 peanut butter cups. And then you'll want to buy another pack because as you unwrap them, you'll be tempted to eat one or three, and then your recipe won't work.

To clarify, that's 24 peanut butter cups for the recipe. However many you want to ingest is between you and your scale.

001

Put those peanut butter cups in a blender and add one egg. That's just one egg, and nothing else.

003

And then blend. Blend your little hearts out, or until it's a stiff and sticky concoction that's fully mixed together.

004

Blop that mess onto a baking pan by the spoonful. Keep the blops spread out to allow room to, well, s p r e a d.

005

And then bake those things at 350 until they're done. (I know! You need details! I can't remember. But watch those things and you'll know when they're done. Seriously.)

006

And then you get to eat. And no, you didn't miss ingredients somewhere. That was 24 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and 1 egg. And they're very YUM.

if you didn't show the cookies I'd say,"your kidding." But we have a recipe for peanut butter cookies that just calls for an egg, sugar and vanilla extract. No flour nothing and it makes good cookies too. I'm really trying to quit eating sugar. I am so hooked on CANDY and COOKIES.

Shut up! Just shut up! That's it?! SOLD.

It would take a lot less time to just fry an egg and eat the peanut butter cups, I think. Or scramble those eggs if you prefer. :)

I have a similar recipe that's sugar, PB and an egg. Then the dog treat version that just has no sugar.
