Reviews for Peanut Butter Cookie Cups
"I would question anyone that doesn't give this recipe 5* :D What's not to love?"
"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."
"My family makes these with large Rolo's and a homemade dough for the cookie which is really fast and simple to make.... really good! Ours are called Caramel & Peanut Butter Hideaways.... ;-)"
"I have been making these for years!"
"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!!"

"I make these every first of September and my co workers love them. They always want the recipe and they are amazed there are only ingredients :)"
"These are so easy! They are a little rich though! And I never get 36 cookies from this recipe."
"Taste absolutely delicious and easy to make!"
"these are so good!!"
"these were sooo good! make sure to spray the muffin tin well though. i used the new extra-small reeses which don't have wrappers. after the first one melted down, i added another one. it looked good and was extra chocolately :)"
"i have not made this cookie but i wondered why you would leave the wrapper on. i think this would get in the way of eating it."
"turned out perfect"
"Super easy and super delicious! Made them last year and already bought the ingredients to make them again!"
"No need to press cookie dough up the sides of the pan; just press the peanut butter cup down into the mini muffin-works great!"
"I made these today with my own cookie recipe and sugar free pb cups as DH is a diabetic. He tells me they turned out really well. 'Don't loose that recipe!' is his quote."
"I haven't tried this particular recipe yet but I've made them for years using a roll of refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough. Cut the roll into 1" thick pieces, cut each piece into 4ths and drop each one into mini-muffin pan. Cook according to pkg. directions. Have PB cups unwrapped and immediately upon removing from the oven, place 1 in each cookie. I usually use a knife to sort of work them up around the choc. for looks. Also seems to help the choc. edges melt better. Avery"
