See? I promised you I wasn’t turning this blog into an all-healthy all-the-time blog!

I actually made these for Dave for Father’s Day. I was having one of those days where I just really needed to bake something, and that day, I was feeling cookies.

So I asked him what kind he wanted, and he said peanut butter.

Well, me being me, I couldn’t do just plain old peanut butter cookies. So I decided to throw in some chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter filled hearts I had leftover from Valentine’s Day. {Not sure how those survived for 4 months in this house, but whatever.}

Holy. Moly. Me.

These cookies are insane. Quite possibly one of the best cookies I’ve ever eaten. Soft, chewy, peanut buttery, chocolatey … Completely amazing. They’re not crumbly like some peanut butter cookies can be, and the addition of the peanut butter cups makes them extra rich and delicious.

And what I love about them is that they’re perfect for lazy or last-minute bakers, like me. I am constantly getting inspired at the last second to bake some cookies, but since I never plan ahead, I never have softened butter ready. No problem with these cookies, because they use melted butter. And there’s no waiting for dough to chill or anything — because, let’s face it: when you start making cookies, you want cookies pronto. Not in an hour after the dough has chilled.

So whip up a batch of these bad boys the next time you have one of those “I need to make cookies NOW!” feelings. {I can’t be the only one who has those, can I??}
