Peanut Butter Stacked Reese's Cookies


Welcome back to Cookie Week! All of the cookies in Cookie Week are simple, including these decadent Peanut Butter Stacked Reese's Cookies. My favorite candy, Reese’s cups, are placed in between two peanut butter cookies resulting in a warm, gooey, chocolate-peanut butter sandwich cookie.

Peanut Butter Stacked Reese’s Cookies (Flourless)

·1 recipe for Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
·12 regular-sized Reese’s cups, unwrapped

Prepare Easy Peanut Butter Cookies according to recipe. Cool cookies on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes. To assemble the stacked sandwich cookies, place a Reese’s on the bottom of one peanut butter cookie and then top with another peanut butter cookie.

Placing the Reese’s in between the peanut butter cookies is best done when they are still warm, but have begun to cool. This will assure the Reese’s melt slightly to create a warm, gooey chocolate-peanut butter center. If you place the Reese’s in between the cookies when they are fresh out of the oven, the Reese’s will melt entirely into a gooey, yet tasty, messy cookie. If you wait until the cookies are cool, the Reese’s will maintain their shape – but you can place the assembled stacked cookies in the microwave for a few seconds to slightly melt the Reese’s center.

Yield: 12 sandwich cookies
