This was a great addition to my cookie platter. It was incredibly easy and so darn good! I don't think you could go wrong with this one. I was a little surprised that I had to bake the cookies for the full 10 minutes, I often find that most things are done in my oven on the low end of the time line.

I've been meaning to try this recipe for a long time but had it in my head that they would be too time- consuming & finicky - NOT SO! So, so easy & so delicious!! I made them to take to a housewarming party & they were gobbled up first! I didn't even bother rolling into balls - I just dropped by teaspoon into the muffin tins & they formed beautifully into tart shells. I also used the really mini Reese's pb cups that are already unwrapped so that saved time. I managed to get 4 dozen cookies out of this recipe & there were more than enough pb cups in one bag.

This is a definite 10 star cookie for me! I did it exactly like it said and they turned out great. I added reeses pieces on the top and they looked professional! I also use the dough for plain ol' peanut butter cookies. The cookies turned out great and stayed soft for days (not that they were around for very long).

I cheated, used brownie mix. Baked in mini paper lined tins. My husband flipped~~~ he never likes anything chocolate but loved these. Will be making them again!!!!!!

These are shamefully easy. I used the "place and bake" refrigerated cookie dough. The pieces went straight from the package into the muffin tin--no rolling into balls or anything! And one package of dough exactly filled my 24 cup mini-muffin pan. I think it took longer for the oven to heat up than it did for anything else. This is a great recipe for those times when you need to make a LOT of cookies. They are extremely fast and easy!

absolutely the easiest impressive little tart in the world. Even my friends who don't like peanut butter love these. Also excellent with mini Rolos. Great recipe. Thanks

These are my absolute favorite cookies! I made them using pre-made peanut butter cookie dough. Plain peanut butter cookies will never be good enough now that I've had these!

These are perfect, I used "store bought" pb cookie dough and was done in minutes! They are simply delicious! Thanks for the great recipe- it's definately a keeper.

These are great and add me to the list of cheaters who use a ready made cookie mix. (You just prepare the cookies according to the instructions on the box.) These froze very well for me over the holiday season as well.
