Okay, I think by now everyone in the baking-world has made Peanut Butter Cookie Cups, Blossoms, (or whatever you call them in your neck of the woods), many times. They are after all a very good, go-to cookie!
I’m not claiming to have come up with the original recipe, not at all! Today’s post is about how great this recipe is for a middle of the week go-to recipe. We all have busy days, and busy weeks. That’s just how life seems to be these days. When it’s the middle of the week, the last thing a lot of people have time for is baking.
These little treats are quick and easy, and people always seem to enjoy them so!
Here at the house of Megamommy we make these kind of often as a mid-week treat. These are especially great with a quick & easy meal like soup & salad, or sandwiches and fruit. Then at the end of the meal you can enjoy two or three, or maybe even more.
They are so easy, so simple and so good! The best part is anyone can bring them in a lunch to school, to work, or just about anywhere, without needing anything special to eat them.
Play around with these and see what flavors your family likes!
Mini Cookie Cups (Peanut Butter or any flavor)
1 package (17 1/2 ounces) peanut butter cookie mix, or any flavor you prefer
24-36 miniature peanut butter cups (regular or white chocolate), unwrapped
(FYI – You can get 36 out of the recipe if you try hard – I seem to only get 24, but that’s fine with me.)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease one miniature muffin pan (24-count)
2. Prepare cookie mix according to instructions. Roll the dough into 1-in. balls, or scoop into balls with a small scoop. Place in greased miniature muffin cups. Press dough evenly onto bottom and up sides of each cup.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until set. Immediately place a peanut butter cup in each cup; press down gently. Cool for at least 15 minutes; carefully remove from pans.
MM TIP: We frequently make different versions of these.Peanut Butter is always good, but so is Chocolate Chip, or any other flavor your family likes. Chocolate Cookie Cups with a Cookies & Cream center is also a big hit with kids!
