This recipe is now a traditon in our family for Christmas. I put tablespoon size balls into mini muffin tins and bake. When I remove them from the oven I push the peanut butter cup into the ball and it forms a tart-shaped cookie. Make sure that the cookies are cooled before removing from the tins. This is now my family's favorite Christmas cookie.
These cookies tasted to much like the shortening. I will not make these again.
I followed this recipe EXACTLY and it was very well received. I hightly recommend this cookie recipe! :)
SO good! These were very simple to make and I especially appreciated that no mini muffin tin was required (as in many similar recipes.) These were just fantastic and were gone in a flash. They are soft and chewy with just the right amount of peanut butter flavor. I'll be making these again for Christmas!
We loved these! My teenage son asked to take them to a class party at school! Was out of shortening so subbed all butter, they spread a little but tasted great. My daughter suggested rolling the peanut butter cup in the dough which worked awesome, will continue to do it that way from now on.
These cookies are FABULOUS!!! I did use my mini muffin pan, and I ran out of the peanut butter cups and still had a few dough balls left, so I put a few chocolate chips in for the peanut butter cups. It worked out great!!
Quick and easy! No mini muffin tins to deal with, so I liked this a lot. Cookies look and taste great!
This was fabulous! I was glad to find one that didn't require mini muffin tins because I don't have any and would never use them again, so didn't want to buy any. I did use margarine instead of shortening though, I never cook with shortening. I also doubled the recipe. These are SO good and I will DEFINITELY make them again!!
