Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

What is it about peanut butter that I love so much? I've recently branched out and started eating almond butter, which I think I love just as much. I even tried sunflower seed butter and to be honest, i'm not such a big fan of that. But peanut butter and almond butter are definite staples around here. I have a really easy peanut butter cookie recipe today that is almost too easy..Peanut Butter Cookie Cups.

This is what you need:
adapted from cookies and cups

1 package peanut butter cookie mix
13 Reese's peanut butter cups

Line a cupcake pan with 12 cupcake liners. Mix the peanut butter cookies according to directions on the bag. Unwrap 13 peanut butter cups and drop one at the bottom of each cupcake liner. Eat the 13th. Drop cookie dough on top of the peanut butter cups. Bake at 325 for about 20-25 minutes. Make sure the cookie dough is 'set'. Take out of pan and cool on cooling rack.

I topped mine with some leftover chocolate gananche (really? who ever has leftover chocolate ganache??) that I piped on with a small round tip and piping bag. And the best part?? The peanut butter cup bottom!!!

And the fact they are so easy? You might want to keep that a secret. I brought these to Bunco and was asked by a few people for the recipe. When I told them how easy it was, I honestly think they were kinda disappointed. They wanted it to be difficult!! It's not difficult to please the masses when it comes to peanut butter. Trust me.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!
