    These were super easy to make. I made them with my 6 year old granddaughter. We sprayed the pan liberally with baking spray. We also dipped the cookie balls into sugar before putting them in the mini muffin tins. We used the bottom of an empty shot glass to press the cookie balls which also spread it up the sides. It was easy peasy. These were a huge hit.

    I have made these for years as Christmas gifts with Pillsbury peanut cookie dough . I keep a ziplock of prior unwrapped Reese’s cups in frig until I need them, and quick to put together with sliced and quartered dough in greased mini tins. After pushing Reese’s in each puffed tart, put in frig awhile and they pop out easily with tip of knife! Everybody’s favorite!

    before baking I roll the dough balls in white sugar for an extra bit of sweetness and sparkle. I use my cookie scoop and leave them in balls, no need to shape before baking. I also will buy the refrigerated tubes of peanut butter cookie dough to save even more time.

    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 just bake the cookies on a cookie sheet and when done I just push a peanut butter cup in the middle of the cookie.Works just as good.

    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!!
