A few weeks ago I got a mini muffin pan, and it might be the cutest gadget type item in my kitchen! I had been looking all over pinterest for some good recipes to try out and came across these delicious peanut butter cup cookies. I'm linking up with Mary and Emily today-- make sure to check out their linkups for more recipes!
I was preparing a ton of other food this day so I took the easy route and used the Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix and it worked out perfect. I think the only thing you add is an egg & water! Now I may or may not have ate half the bag of peanut butter cups before I made these, but I think you should have enough for about 48 mini cookies- so you might need two bags of peanut butter cups.
directions: preheat oven to 375; prepare cookie mix as package instructs; roll dough into ball & place in muffin tin; bake 8-10 minutes; while cookies are baking unwrap peanut butter cups; once cookies are baked press peanut butter cups into cookie- they should be about flush with the top of the cookie; let cool & voila!
*put your peanut butter cups in the freezer beforehand and they'll be less messy when you press them into the cookie.
I can't express how easy these were to make! I love baking more involved recipes, but sometimes you just want something easy with little cleanup. One last tip- make sure you let them cool all the way before you remove them from the pan!
Also, if you don't have a mini muffin pan, it looks like some people used a regular muffin tin-- you will probably have to adjust the bake time a little bit and there will be more cookie- but I'm sure they would still be good!
