Let’s be honest.
This is not going make you lose 20 pounds. But it will fill your belly.
It’s not the slightest bit healthy. But it is pure delicious joy.
It won’t help you get that job you want. Well, unless you make them for your future boss.
It had to happen – purely by accident. I bought the regular size peanut butter cups with the intention to make mini cookie cups.
Well, that’s what happens when you quickly glance at something, and then buy all the ingredients you think you need. lol. I was inspired by this recipe on What’s Cooking With Ruthie. Buuuut I wanted to make the dough from scratch & not use the processed, pre-made tube.
So, I went to the store, got my peanut butter cups, went home, preheated the oven, mixed up the cookie base in the mixer, and then started to read the directions (because how was that peanut butter cup going to fit into that little mini muffin pan hole anyway?!). Well, duh – that’s what I get! lol – I was supposed to get MINI peanut butter cups! It was 9pm & too late for me to run to the store just for mini peanut butter cups. So, what’s a girl do to – put on her thinking cap & make it work! Well, it turned into a two day event of experimentation!
I experimented with different temperatures (because I had to upgrade to a regular muffin pan), and different techniques in placing the peanut butter cups in (because it surely didn’t work using the original recipe with my altered ingredients ;). I was DETERMINED to MAKE IT WORK! Tim Gunn would be so proud ;)
So, after several small victories along the way, & some minor failures – by golly, I have a new, original recipe for you! And I thought it “needed” something more…like buttercream frosting… mmmmmmmmmmm.
Here ya go (you can curse me later after you taste them ;) – I present to you…
Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Cups (with vanilla buttercream!)
