Peanut Butter Cup PB Cookies

The other night I made sloppy joes for supper. For the sides, I had green beans and cut up fresh pineapple. All the children loved the pineapple except for my youngest niece. She didn't even want to try it. My sister tried but she refused. So, I told her if she tried it then I would make her some peanut butter cookies. My sister suggested I should add peanut butter cups into the cookies. With this type of enticement, my niece did try the pineapple. She says she doesn't like it but she tired it. However, she did like these cookies. All the children liked these cookies.
