6 thoughts on “Cookie Cups With Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Filling”
Homer Simpson drooling over here! Oh my goodness those just look too good. Normally I’m not a fan of peanut butter, I think I’ve just had so much in my life so far. However, these are making me a big fan.
Are these made in a mini muffin pan, or are these made in a regular size muffin pan?
Hi Melanie! I made the No Bake Cheesecake and the Peanut Butter Cream Cheese ones in a regular size muffin tin and the Homemade Whipped Cream cookie cups in a mini muffin tin. So you can do either! I think the “cup” part turned out better in the larger muffin tins, but they were all delicious 🙂
