My whole life is making delicious nut butters. Is it any wonder that my favorite type of cookie is a peanut butter cookie? I do like to add a little variety to my favorite treats, though. Chopped white chocolate peanut butter cups are a welcome addition to this White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
