Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Peanut Butter Frosting
 
Ingredients
  • 1 recipe chocolate chip cookies
  • 1 stick of butter softened
  • ½ cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 2-4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or cream
Instructions
  1. Scoop rounded spoonfuls of cookie dough into a muffin tin and press into the muffin well and up the sides. Bake at 325 until edges are golden and the middle is soft but set. (Mine took 10 minutes.)
  2. Prepare the frosting: Cream together the butter and peanut butter until thick and smooth. Slowly add the powdered sugar until thick. Add the vanilla extract, and then the milk a little at a time until the frosting is the right consistency. Beat on high for a few seconds to make it light and fluffy. Pipe or spread into each (cooled) cookie cup.
Notes
I made 1 dozen cookie cups and froze the rest of my cookie dough for later use. If you make more than a dozen cups you may want to increase the frosting quantity!
