Hello everyone! It's officially Spring! To kick off the season in delicious style, I whipped up a batch of cookie cups. Simple really, just use your favorite cookie recipe, hollow out the middle and fill it up with nutella, white chocolate, peanut butter, or any combination of the three. I made peanut butter cookie cups and chocolate chip cookie cups. I tried a couple different flavor combos, my favorite was the chocolate chip cookie filled with Nutella and white chocolate. Amazing. Next time I want to do white chocolate macadamia cookies filled with nutella. The cookie/filling possibilities are endless.
Nutella PB Cookie Cups
Adapted from Pillsbury
1 batch of your favorite cookie dough
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup nutella
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F), line a muffin tray with muffin liners or coat well with butter. For the cookie cups you can use whatever cookie recipe you like, you may have to adjust the cooking time though.
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough
Chocolate Chip Dough
Once you've got your dough ready, scoop into the muffin tins (I used an ice cream scoop).
Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Cool in muffin cups on cooling rack 30 minutes. Centers of cookies will sink slightly.
If the cookies don't sink enough to form a "cup" scoop out the middles using a spoon or a melon baller.
Peanut Butter Filling
In small microwavable bowl, microwave white chips on Medium 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth. Stir peanut butter into melted chips until blended. Spoon about 2 teaspoons peanut butter mixture into each cookie cup.
If you prefer nutella filling you can either mix it with the white chocolate or just spoon it as is into the middle of the cookies.
