  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until puffed and lightly browned; remove from oven. Immediately press peanut butter cup or piece onto each cookie. Cool completely in muffin pan. About 3-1/2 dozen cookies.

i made this recipe for a sporting event, they didnt last an hour ! they didnt last around the house either! i added a teaspoon of light corn syrup and it made them melt in your mouth! my husband is addicted!

These are so good. Actually very easy too! I used 2 inch foil liners so I could just put them on a cookie sheet rather than using the mini muffin pan. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Drizzled the tops with some melted semi sweet chocolate. They looked beautiful and hardly had a chance to cool before we gobbled half of them. Thanks so much for the recipe.

These cookies are verrrry good. I can't cook anything and I didn't mess these up. I only made 30 cookies so they were a little bigger.

I would actually give the kid friendly rating on these a 10!!! My boys' favorite candy bar is Reese Cup, as with many kids, I believe; so, these are a HUGE hit with them.....and my husband and me, too! :o) Very quick, easy, and fun to make. The kids love to help out! Makes a great family-time activity that everyone can enjoy afterwards.

Definite kid pleaser and very easy. The dough is a bit sticky, but they come out so pretty and are super yummy. Much better made with the homemade dough than the refrigerated store bought kind.
