DIRECTIONS

  • The reason I did not specify how much sugar cookie dough, is because this recipe makes a million cookies, no matter which sugar cookie recipe you use.
  • The amount of cookies you get really depends on how many peanut butter cups you buy.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Press a small amount of dough on bottom and sides of a mini muffin pan.
  • Don't make it too thin or it will be difficult to pop them out.
  • Don't make them too thick or the cookie will not be a"bowl".
  • It is best to do a practice run with your first batch to see which thickness works best.
  • Try a few thicknesses in one pan.
  • After you have pressed dough onto the sides and bottom of mini muffin pan, bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
  • While baking, start unwrapping peanut butter cups.
  • YOU NEED TO WORK FAST NOW!
  • QUICKLY put one peanut butter cup into each sugar cookie bowl.
  • After you are done, the chocolate will be slightly melted around the edges.
  • Run a knife, or a chopstick (something skinny) around the edge of each peanut butter cup to make the ridges disapear.
  • This makes them look much nicer.
  • Remove from pan using a butter knife to"pop" them out after they have cooled for about 5 minutes.
  • Place cookies on a paper bag.
  • When cooled, drizzle with melted semi-sweet chips.
  • You can use the sugar cookie bowls for pretty much anything.
  • I also fill them with melted chocolate mixed with chopped almonds, drizzled with melted caramel chips.
