Reese's Miniature Peanut Butter Treats

Dana Ramsey


My family loves peanut butter cups and I got this recipe off of one of the bags of candy. I make them each Christmas and they go fast!

A Tip From JAP Member Deneece Gursky - - to make this cookie even easier just go purchase a tube of Pilsbury Peanut Butter Cookie Dough and following the instructions on this recipe. Cuts the time down and you can have an amazing cookie in no time at all. Thanks Deneece!
