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!

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.
