Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling
I have made these since 1993 and are a favourite of my family every Christmas.
Hi, is there a certain ingredient You can recommend to substitute the peanut butter with? Can cream cheese work?
I adapted these to be gluten free by substituting brown rice flour and adding a little zanthan gum, about half a teaspoon. They worked perfectly. They were really good. I had some leftover chocolate filling which I chilled and later used to make chocolate stuffed chocolate chip cookies. I used a melon baller to make balls then flattened the cookie dough into a disk and wrapped it around the chocolate ball sealing the seams. This is easier if you use mini chocolate chips but the regular worked too. Then flatten very slightly and bake as usual, but a couple minutes longer.
I made a gluten free versio using gluten free flour. Instead of ganache, I immediately, upon removing from oven, pushed a mini peanut butter cup into middle. Delicious.
I finally got around to making these. They showed up on my Instagram feed in the fall and looked yummy! They didn't disappoint. I did have some of the filling left but most was used. I used my tart shaper instead of a spoon handle which makes a larger impression. I can only guess that they were enjoyed by all as I only got to have 1 and they were all gone.
We really enjoyed these cookies. I love the size so there is not any over indulging. Also, very quick and easy to make.
These cookies are perfect for the holiday. The fudge filling is a perfect for the baked peanut butter cup.
I have been making these for 24 years! They are one of the must have items for my family at Christmas. I double the cookie batter and make one recipe of the fudge filling. I put the filling in a zip lock bag and cut off one corner. I tried this after trying many ways to get the filling in the cookie cup and it works best for me.
Made these for my daughter's bake sale fund raiser for a school trip. Excellent cookie These sold very quickly.
These were a hit! They taste even better than the usual peanut butter blossoms with a Hershey Kiss that gets hard after the cookie cools. The center stays soft in these cookies!
