    I can't STOP eating them!

    I have made 16 dozen of them! Okay 8 dozen are for exchanges, but 4 dozen are unaccounted for! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: and I still have 4 dozen upstairs cooling.

    I even froze them, and ate them straight out of the FREEZER!

    Okay, maybe this thread should be called, confessions of a Christmas cookie baker, um, eater!!!!

    Also a super easy version of this-probably isn't quite as good but I like them just the same is to buy Pillsbury Peanut Butter cookie dough in the roll and pinch off an amount roll into a ball and push into a small muffin tin. Then when you pull it out of the oven stick your reese's cup into it immediately. The hardest part of these is unwrapping the candy. I had a friend who always brought these to work.

    Oh - the ones you made were the recipe I posted. I love those!! :teeth: I haven't gotten around to baking yet (I'm waiting until DD has time & we had homework overload this weekend :( but she has off on Friday) but I think DH is getting tired of waiting...yesterday he brought me a 2 lb bag of mini peanut butter cups from his Wal-Mart run. :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

    As much as the other recipe sounds wonderful to me, I don't think I'd better mess with DH's expectations this week. Maybe between Christmas & New Year's...

    I used the cookie part of the recipe. Put in mini muffin tins and baked for 9 minutes. Took them out and put a reeses miniature in them. then put the frosting on top.

    They have been a hit at cookie exchanges. I have made 12 dozen and only have a few left. Need to make more this week. This is the recipe:

    Another more special cookie. . . You'll want to hide some of these in the freezer for yourself; otherwise, they tend to disappear.

    Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

    Filling:
    1/2 c. peanut butter
    1/4 c. powdered sugar

    Cookie:
    1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
    1/4 c. sugar
    1/2 c. margarine, softened
    6 oz. cream cheese, softened
    1 t. vanilla
    1 egg
    2 c.flour
    1/4 c. cocoa
    1 t. baking powder

    Frosting:
    1 c. sifted powdered sugar
    2 T. cocoa
    1 to 2 T. milk
    2 oz cream cheese

    In small bowl, combine peanut butter and powdered sugar; blend until smooth. Chill while mixing cookie dough for easier handling. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. In large bowl, cream brown sugar, sugar, margarine and 6 oz cream cheese until light and fluffy; blend in vanilla and egg. Blend flour, cocoa and baking powder into creamed mixture. Shape dough into one-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. With thumb, make imprint in center of each cookie; fill with 1 tsp filling. Bring dough around filling to completely cover. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes. Cool. In small bowl, blend frosting ingredients. Spread over peanut butter cups. Makes 3-1/2 dozen

    I used piratesmate's recipe in post #5. I love it, I have 2 mini-muffin pans, so I can bake 48 cookies at once! WOW!! But, mine only take about 9 minutes to bake.

    I hate you guys. I made some last night (only a dozen because my pan is only that big) and they are almost all gone.

    I always try something new to our standard Xmas meal each year. Based on comments from this thread, I tried the Peanut Butter Cup Cookies and am so glad I did. They were a HUGE hit at Xmas get together yesterday. I always send plates of remaining desserts with everyone and all were picking up extras of this cookie! Will have to make again next year!!
