Thick, soft peanut butter cookies are studded with Oreo cookie pieces, making it a perfect blend of peanut butter and cookies and cream.

This recipe combines two delicious flavors: peanut butter and cookies and cream.

There’s been a lot of buzz about Oreo’s new limited edition flavor: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreo. They are supposed to be really good but I’ve had a hard time finding them. I know they are available at Walmart and Target but not at the ones I checked this weekend. Inspired by peanut butter and Oreos, I made these cookies.

I started with a thick, soft, peanut butter cookie. I mixed in crushed Oreos. The end result was a delicious combination of flavors. They aren’t meant to taste like the limited edition Oreo, but if you want to do that, you can add in some chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups.

    I found mine at Giant here in Maryland, which may be the same as a West Coast store under a different name… good luck!

    Hi Kirbie! The peanut butter you used, are they sweetened or unsweetened? Thanks! :)

    • Kirbie replied: — August 20th, 2014 @ 9:20 am

      I’m a little confused by your question. I used regular creamy peanut butter–i haven’t seen any sweetened or unsweetened varieties when I shop for peanut butter. I guess it would be the sweetened one?

    Apologies for the confusion. I was thinking that natural peanut butter is unsweetened. I’ve come across recipes that calls for peanut butter, but didn’t specify that they used natural ones, so my dough ended up too sweet. :( What brand did you use, btw? Skippy? :)

    • Kirbie replied: — August 21st, 2014 @ 12:22 am

      I recommend using store bought for these, because the natural peanut butter has a different texture and consistency. I use Jif and Skippy

    I got mine at Stater Bros too, but I actually didn’t care for them!   And I love Reese’s!  I’m excited to try your recipe, though – looks yummy!
