I started making these 25 years ago, and you probably have the recipe, too. But in case you’ve forgotten about this recipe, or if you’ve never seen this recipe, here it is:
Using miniature muffin pans, place balls of cookie dough (each ball equivalent to one cookie) in the muffin pans. Bake according to directions but do not overbake. While the cookie dough is baking, unwrap the miniature peanut butter cups if you haven’t already done so. Just as soon as you take the pans out of the oven, place a peanut butter cup on top of each cookie and mash down. The cookie dough becomes the shell for the peanut butter cup. If you want to add a festive look, add some colored sprinkles on top.
