Peanut Butter Cup Spider Cookies: 30 Days of Halloween- Day 3

Peanut Butter Cup Spider Cookies - Perfectly chewy peanut butter cookies for Halloween!

It’s me again! I get to share two recipes during the series this year. Today I’m sharing a cookie recipe that will change the way you look at peanut butter cookies. Not just because of the fact that they look like they have a spider stuck to the top. The combination of chewy peanut butter cookie with that Reese’s peanut butter cup is insane. I’ll be making these  cookies all year round for that reason!

Peanut Butter Cup Spider Cookies


  • 3/4 c. butter, softened
  • 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 1/2 c. flour


  1. Cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, eggs, and brown sugar in a stand mixer.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together baking soda and flour; slowly add to peanut butter mixture.
  3. Form dough into 1-inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375°.
  4. While cookies are baking, unwrap enough Reese's Peanut Butter Cup miniatures for each cookie. Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool for two minutes. Lightly press a peanut butter cup upside down on each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet and place on a cooling rack.
