Mini Peanut Butter Creme Cookie Cups

You know those days when you are craving something sweet…oh let’s say…chocolate and peanut butter? Or maybe you need a quick, but impressive looking dessert to take to the office, a potluck or maybe a luncheon for Teacher’s Appreciation. And I know most any Mom would be thrilled to receive some of these Mini Peanut Butter Creme Cookie Cups for Mother’s Day!

Well…I have you covered, my friends! These yummy little treats are from the Pillsbury Bake-Off finalist, Mary Fields from Gilbert, Arizona. The Pillsbury recipe directions call for the Peanut Butter Creme Cookie Cups to be made in a regular size muffin tin, I adapted them a bit and made them into a mini version.

The Peanut Butter filling is pretty rich, so I thought a small bite would be the perfect portion…unless you eat 4 or 5 like I did!

Let’s get baking…

With only 4 ingredients…they are definitely quick!

  • ½ cup white baking chips
  • ¼ cup Peanut Butter, creamy
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place cupcake liners in muffin cups {either regular size or mini}
  2. For minis - slice off about ¼ inch of cookie dough and divide into quarters, roll each part into a ball
  3. For regular size - slice cookie dough into 12 pieces
  4. Place pecans into a bowl, roll cookie dough lightly and place in liner
  5. For minis - using a tart shaper or spoon, gently press dough in the middle until it forms up the sides

Notes
Liz says...I loved these fresh from the oven. The peanut butter did set up a bit after they sat, next time I would thin out the peanut butter mixture with more baking chips or less peanut butter. They were still delicious though, even after setting up.

    Do you spray the cupcake liners so the cookies don’t stick??

  4. Darlene says:

    these sound great. i am a peanut butter/chocolate fanatic so I am going to try these using peanut butter cookie dough and chocolate chips instead of white ones. Overkill? maybe…do I care…never!
