I'm a busy schoolteacher and pastor's wife. I wouldn't dare show my face at a church dinner or bake sale without these tempting peanut butter treats. They're quick, easy to make and always a hit. —Kristi Tackett, Banner, Kentucky

"I use my own homemade peanut butter cookie recipe (not a mix), but you don't need to press and form the cookies into the mini muffin pan. Just place the cookie balls into the muffin pan, cook the cookie balls for the recommended time, take them out of the oven, and immediately press the peanut butter cup into the cookie. Works great!"

"I first made these for my son's graduation party, the leftovers went to our Midweek group at church, who loved them, now request them. I make my own Peanut Butter cookies and press it down with one of those Pampered Chef tart tools."

"I make these w/ my own cookie dough, not a mix, & I agree w/franwalker no need to press the dough. Pushing the peanut butter cup in spreads the dough evenly, perfect!!"
